Migraine is a disease and the headache is only a symptom. Migraine is characterized by attacks in which people will experience headaches, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound and smells. Sufferers often complain of mood changes such as anxiety, depression and irritability. They may also have difficulty concentrating and suffer from fatigue as well. A few migraine sufferers may experience brain symptoms such as abnormal sensations, loss of balance or movement, speech problems and visual disturbances. These abnormal sensations called an aura often occur before the headache starts and even occur without the presence of a headache. When an aura is not present, a misdiagnosis of “tension headaches” is made, when in fact the patient is suffering a migraine without aura.
