Migraine DiagramMigraine is said to affect up to 8.5million people in the UK with two-thirds of sufferers being women. Migraines usually develop in young adults. A migraine is a moderate to severe throbbing headache located at the front or side of the head. Migraine headaches may be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea and light sensitivity, although not all patients will suffer from these.

There are different types of migraines, including:

Migraine with aura: This is where the migraine attack is preceded by a warning sign such as flashing lights. This type of migraine may also be called a ‘classic migraine’ as it is most common occurring in 75% of cases.

Migraine without aura: This is where the migraine attack comes on without warning. It is also known as a ‘common migraine’.
