What you need to know about Migraines
Migraine is a neurological disorder that can induce a variety of symptoms in addition to “very awful headaches.” While severe, incapacitating headaches are a common symptom, other signs and symptoms may include:
- Difficulty speaking
- Numbness or tingling
- Sensitivity to light and sound
The condition is commonly passed down through families and can affect people of various ages. People who are identified as female at birth are more likely to be diagnosed with migraine than people who are identified as male at birth.
Migraine diagnosis is made based on the patient’s medical history, reported symptoms, and the elimination of other possible causes. Episodic versus chronic migraine headaches (or attacks) are the most prevalent types, followed by those without aura and those with aura.
