Migraine is a common neurological condition affecting approximately 20 million Americans annually. Headaches are the most prevalent symptom of migraine. Migraine headache attacks usually last 4 to 72 hours and last longer than normal headaches. They are characterized by unilateral head pain, often throbbing or pulsating, associated with photophobia, phonophobia (sensitivity to noise), nausea or vomiting, and moderate to severe pain. These symptoms are similar to those of other types of headaches and are generally attributed to tension, muscle contraction, and/or emotional stress.
Migraine is a multifactorial disease. It is thought that environmental, genetic, and hormonal factors all contribute to the pathophysiology of migraine. However, the etiology of migraine is not completely understood.
The frequency of migraine attacks varies greatly among people, but it is estimated that 1 in 4 Americans experience at least one migraine attack per year.
