What is a Migraine?

Migraine is a chronic and debilitating disorder that affects approximately 15% of the adult population. In young children, usually those below the age of 15 years, migraine headaches may be bi-lateral or unilateral, and may be non-throbbing. The patient may look ill and pale, may feel dizzy, have blurred vision, and fever. Nausea and vomiting are frequent, particularly in young children (defined as 7 years of age). Patients tend to avoid light (photophobia), noise (phonophobia), strong odors, and movement.
