Migraine Facts & Its Prevention

Migraine is an intense, sometimes incapacitating headache that can be convoyed by sensory warning signs such as augmented sensitivity to light, sound and smell, feeling sick, tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, blind spots, and vomiting. The symptoms of migraine may vary from one person to another and they may also experience different symptoms during different attacks. Although, for many people the key feature is a grievous headache. Migraine attacks can be very frightening and may result in you having to lie still for several hours. In worst cases, migraine attacks may last to over 72 hours. Thus, it is needful to know the early stage signs of migraine as well as the methods of its preventions.
