A migraine onset may be similar to an intense headache and thus may be difficult to differentiate. There are, however, symptoms typically associated with a migraine. These include:
• Sensitivity to light, sound and even smells
• Nausea and vomitingPain around the eyes and also, the temples
• Visual auras such as seeing spots, lines or flickering lights
If you are unsure and particularly, if it is a recurring event, then do seek a doctor’s advice.
