Migraine: What it is? Types of Migraine

There are two main types of migraine:

Migraine with Aura (Classic Migraine):

This type of headache is characterized by the neurological phenomenon (aura) that is experienced 10 to 30 minutes before a headache begins. Auras may be experienced as visual disturbances, hallucinations or even temporary loss of vision before a headache. . Some other common expressions of the aura may be in the form of giddiness, vertigo, tingling numbness in various parts of the body, weakness, difficulty in speech, etc. Auras are experienced due to the constriction of the cranial blood vessels prior to the commencement of a migraine.

Migraine without Aura (Common Migraine):

This is a common presentation and here the patient does not experience any aura (neurological phenomena) before a headache. Nausea and vomiting frequently accompany this kind of migraine. General fatigue and lethargy may be experienced before a headache begins.

  • 01 Basilar

It is caused by a disturbance in the functioning of the nervous system which may be triggered by environmental factors or changes in the body itself. Migraine tends to run in families which shows that genetics has a role to play in the development of migraine.

In many women, migraine tends to recur at some point of their menstrual cycles regularly, either before, during or after the menses. This is known as a menstrual migraine and it is related to the hormonal changes that occur in the body during the menstrual cycle. Menstrual migraines tend to disappear during pregnancy.
