Migraines are often characterized by severe, throbbing headaches, typically on one side of the head.
Increased sensitivity to light (photophobia) and sound (phonophobia) is a common symptom during a migraine episode.
Many individuals with migraines experience nausea and, in some cases, vomiting during an attack.
Auras, or visual disturbances such as flashing lights or zigzag lines, can precede or accompany a migraine.
Some people describe a pulsing or throbbing sensation in the head during a migraine, adding to the overall discomfort.
Beyond visual disturbances, auras can include other sensory changes, such as tingling or numbness in the face or hands.
Migraines can leave individuals feeling fatigued and mentally foggy even after the headache subsides, impacting daily activities.
