Migraine is described in Ayurvedic Texts as ARDHAVABHEDAK means half sided headache. Some texts resembles it with “Anantavaata” –meaning literally the unilateral pain that resembles the classical migraine. It is a terrible headache often accompained by the  feeling of nausea and vomitings. The pain is usually felt on the one side of the head.

One may experience flashing light,zigzag lines, bright spots , partial loss of vision , numbness and tingling in the hand –tongue or side of face. No medical tests confirm the diagnosis of migraine , the diagnosis is made clinically by the physician. 

The pain usually start in childhood or adolescence, are at their worst in the 30’s and 40’s and then decline. Very often they run in families. The classic migraine begins with a warming “aura” – flashing lights in one eye, blurring, blind sports, distortion of vision, and tingling of the arms or face. After about 30-60 minutes the headache begins, usually on one side but sometimes all over. It is a pounding, excruciating pain, which usually lasts for four to six hours.

The more common “common migraine” may lack the warning symptoms, and the headache may be far longer lasting, although equally awful. The patient can feel irritable or depressed for hours or even days beforehand. But symptoms vary widely – periods of paralysis, dizziness, or even loss of consciousness are all reported

Attacks may be triggered off by all sorts of thing. Common ones include: food – alcohol in general and red wine in particular, chocolate and caffeine; fasting: stress – strong emotional reactions and fatigue; changes in the weather or altitude; hormonal changes such as those caused by menstruation or taking birth control pills. Slightly more women than men suffer with migraines.

Other types of headache: the most fearsome sort are the cluster headaches which happen frequently – daily or several times a week – for weeks or months and then stop for months at a time. They are much more common in men, usually young men. They last for about an hour and the pain is almost exclusively on one side of the head, often around or behind the eye. It is so severe that sufferers often run around in despair and may even commit suicide.

The common “tension headaches” which nearly everyone gets sometimes are caused by involuntary tensing of the face and neck muscles over a long period, usually after concentrating hard or because of stress. The pain is a steady ache, which can last for hours or days, around the back of the head and neck, in the forehead, and around the eyes.

A migraine is usually an intense pounding headache with nausea that occurs from time to time. The pounding or pulsing pain usually begins in the forehead, the side of the head or around the eyes. The headache gradually gets worse. Bright lights or loud noises make the headache worse. The headache can last for two hours or even up to two or three days.
