Anyone who has ever suffered a migraine knows it’s no ordinary headache.
Migraine is a neurological disease that causes periodic, painful attacks, which affect about 12 percent of the nation’s population.
Migraine headaches involve recurrent attacks of moderate to severe throbbing or pulsing pain, often on one side of the head. Patients report sensitivity to light, noise and odors and headaches are sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Routine physical activity, coughing or sneezing can make the pain worse.
