Understanding Your Symptoms

It’s not all in your head. Migraine attacks are often accompanied by a variety of symptoms like throbbing head pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, heightened sensitivity to light, sound, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face. And although migraine experiences differ from person to person, many people report similar experiences.

In fact, in a national survey (American Migraine Study II), a large percentage of people with migraine reported the following as their most reoccurring symptoms:

  • Throbbing pain (85%)
  • Sensitivity to light (80%)
  • Sensitivity to sound (76%)
  • Nausea (73%)

In the U.S., an estimated 14.8 million people with migraine suffer symptoms severe enough to require bed rest or cause impairment of daily activities. And some people have reported their migraine attack lasting anywhere between four and 72 hours.

If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, it may be time to talk to your doctor and see if you’re able to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.

Identifying and Managing Your Triggers

In the world of migraine, navigating and knowing what causes migraine attacks can be difficult. Everyday actions can trigger migraine. What prompts a migraine attack for one person may not necessarily trigger one for the next, which is why it’s important to understand common triggers and track how they affect you.

While it’s good to have an understanding of common triggers, every individual experience is different. Tracking or recording your triggers is the best way to know how you’re affected and can help you avoid the onset of a migraine attack and allow you to better anticipate when one might strike. It’s also great information to share when talking to your doctor about your migraine management goals.
