A migraine is a severe and painful headache or a headache disorder formed by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head. The pain last from two to 72 hours. The pain is generally made worse by physical activity. Up to one-third of people have typically a short period of visual disturbance (known as 'aura' ) that the headache will soon occur. Normally, an aura can occur with little or no headache.

It is an inherited tendency to have headaches with sensory disturbance. It’s an instability in the way the brain deals with incoming sensory information, and that instability can become influenced by physiological changes like sleep, exercise and hunger.

It is normally begin in childhood, adolescence or early adulthood. Migraines may progress through the following four stages;

1. Prodrome

2. Aura
It may occur before or during migraines. Auras are symptoms of the nervous system. They are usually visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or wavy, zigzag vision. Most people experience migraines without aura.

This stage usually lasts from four to 72 hours if untreated. It is the pick or worse condition of the disease (Migraine), the frequency with which headaches occur varies from person to person. Migraines may be rare, or strike several times a month.
