What is a Migraine Headache:
A migraine headache is a form of vascular headache. Migraine headache is caused by vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) that causes the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the large arteries of the brain.
The headache normally occurs on one side of the head. Migraines is associated with disorders of digestion, liver, and sight. Migraine headache occur sometimes due to great mental tension and stress. Migraine headache patients are typically smart, inflexible, disciplined. Sudden migraines attacks may occur due to overworked muscles in the head and neck and due to continuous stress.
