Migraine is characterised by recurrent headaches with visual disturbance and nausea. Attacks can vary from one to two a year to several times a week. The duration and severity of attacks also vary and severe attacks can last from six to eighteen hours. Certain factors can trigger migraine - bright sunlight, stress, certain foods (chocolate, cheese) are all factors. Treatment by tablet form generally relieves all symptoms. Prognosis is good unless a major underlying cause is present.
