Migraine disorder

A migraine is usually a moderate or severe headache felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head. It is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks will likely get worse with physical activity, lights, sounds or smells. It may last at least four hours or even days. About 12% of Americans have this genetic disorder.

Many people also have symptoms such as feeling sick, being sick and increased sensitivity to light or sound. People describe migraine pain as: pulsating, throbbing, perforating, pounding, debilitating
