A feature of migraine is its ability to change position. One day it hurts on one side, another day on the other, another day on both! And often the pain is unbearable, disabling even simple activities like reading or watching television.

There are several factors that trigger a migraine attack  and it is very important to identify these factors in order to avoid them!

Youtriggering factors  The most common ones are: food (usually fatty foods, fried foods, chocolate, caffeine and other stimulating drinks), use of alcoholic beverages, exposure to intense light or strong odors and the menstrual period itself.


Aura is a neurological manifestation, which occurs in about 25% of people with migraine. It can occur in the form of visual symptoms, with bright spots in vision, or dark spots and "failures" in vision. There may also be sensory symptoms, such as tingling, numbness  and lack of sensation in a part of the body, such as the limbs or face, or even loss of strength in an arm and difficulty speaking.


It usually precedes a pain crisis, but it often bothers more than the headache itself.
