Most migraines are recurring and can range from moderate to severe pain. Some people also become nauseated, experience vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound during their migraines. The pain can be on one side or both sides of the head and usually has a pulsating, throbbing quality. Many people who have migraines headaches also have triggers such as stress, foods, beverages containing alcohol or caffeine, hormonal changes in women, and sensory stimuli like bright lights or sun glare, loud noises, or unusual smells. Treatment of migraines includes medications to relieve symptoms during an attack, identifying and minimizing triggers, and for some people doctors can prescribe medication to help reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.
