Migraine is due to several factors including genetic mutations, spine and muscle disorders, nerve compression and environmental triggers. Certain migraines are inherited Neurological conditions due to a mutation in the CACN gene which makes your brain more sensitive to environmental triggers. The headache is a protective mechanism to tell you to step away from your trigger. Migraine headaches usually present as mild to intense throbbing and pressure like headaches that can vary in intensity and frequency. A migraine is not just a headache. Hallmark signs of migraine include mild to severe nausea, sensitivity to light and/or sound. There are many kinds of migraines that include dizziness, neck pain, confusion and/or weakness.
Migraine headaches are often heralded by a prodrome or aura and followed by a postdrome. These including visual changes, tingling or weakness in the extremities or face, repetitive yawning, frequent urination, irritability. After the headache ends you may experience a headache hangover with brain fog, nausea, fatigue and irritability.
