thanks for your query
migraine is a common type of headache that may occur with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light
Some people who get migraines have warning symptoms, called an aura, before the actual headache begins. including vision disturbances, that are a warning sign that a bad headache is coming. Not every person with migraines has an aura
there is no specific cure for migraine headaches. The goal is to treat your migraine symptoms right away, and to prevent symptoms by avoiding triggers.
A headache diary can help you identify your headache triggers. Then you and your doctor can plan how to avoid these triggers.
If you have frequent migraines, your doctor may prescribe medicine to reduce the number of attacks.
such as amitriptyline
beta blockers
valproic acid
