These headaches are intense or severe and often have other symptoms in addition to head pain. Symptoms associated with a migraine headache include:

  • Nausea
  • Pain behind one eye or ear
  • Pain in the temples
  • Seeing spots or flashing lights
  • Sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • Temporary vision loss
  • Vomiting

Migraine headaches are typically divided into two categories: a migraine with aura and migraine without aura. An “aura” refers to sensations a person experiences before they get a migraine. The sensations typically occur anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes before an attack. These can include:

  • Feeling less mentally alert or having trouble thinking
  • Seeing flashing lights or unusual lines
  • Feeling tingling or numbness in the face or hands
  • Having an unusual sense of smell, taste, or touch
