Migraines And Women – When Youve Really Got A Headache

September 20

But a migraine headache is much more severe. Described as a severe throbbing, usually located on one side of the head. Any light or sound makes it worse, and the terrible aching may be accompanied by nausea. The excruciating pain is almost unbearable and the slightest movement only intensifies the pain. Some people even have visual symptoms such as flashing lights or an aura, as well. If you suffer from migraine headaches, you are not alone.
