What is Migraine?
print icon
  • Migraine is a common cause of headache, affecting around 1 in 5 Australians
  • But it’s more than just a headache- there are particular criteria needed to make the diagnosis, so it’s important to see a doctor to be certain
  • Common symptoms include a recurring severe throbbing headache that lasts between 4 and 72 hours. It tends to involve one side of the head (though it can involve the entire head) and is often made worse by movement or routine daily activities. Nausea, vomiting, and an aversion to light (photophobia) or sound (phonophobia) are common symptoms, and some people also get an “aura” before the headache starts
  • Migrainous headaches may vary in severity, frequency and can have a major impact on daily life
