WHAT ARE THEY?

If you're wondering whether your headaches might be migraines, there are telltale signs.:

If your headaches include at least two symptoms from the following: 

* The pain is on one side of your head
* The pain is throbbing or pulsating
* The intensity is moderate to severe, interfering with or restricting normal daily activities 
* The pain is made worse by actions such as exercising, coughing, bending and stopping.

  and

one symptom from this list

* Nausea
* Vomiting
* Sensitivity to light
* Sensitivity to sound

and if they last between four and 72 hours, the chances are you're dealing with a migraine.

Migraine involves intense, throbbing pain that usually begins in the temple or one eye and may eventually spread down to the neck or even one arm. Bright lights can make a migraine person's eyes water helplessly and send darts of pain into their head; small noises become magnified, and ordinary noises may be almost unbearable.  Often the headache is accompanied by nausea and vomiting. 

About one in five migraine sufferers are warned by bizarre events called "auras".  An aura may involve a perception of flashing lights or an experience of numbness travelling up and down the body.  It may also cause temporary partial paralysis, blindness or an inability to speak.

Migraine headaches are neither dangerous nor life-threatening.  But they sure are a pain!
