What are migraine headaches?
A migraine headache is a type of headache in which a person experiences intense throbbing, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, and sound. These headaches may also worsen with movement. Some young people may experience a distorted hallucinating like affect. If these symptoms do occur without the headache, it is still considered a migraine headache.

How are migraine headaches treated?
Migraine headaches can be treated non-medically by avoiding known triggers. These triggers will be specific to each individual. For example, some people may experience a migraine due to stressful events; whereas, others may experience migraines because of head trauma. Migraines are best treated with preventative medicine such as promethazine. Acute attacks are usually controlled with prescription medication.
