Most people have heard of migraine headaches, but most don't realize that there are actually several different kinds. An abdominal migraine affects not just the head but the abdomen, and usually occurs in children. A basilar migraine is one that affects the person in the back of the neck and / or brain. Migraines most commonly occur in women and usually start between the ages of 10 and 46. Migraines can be difficult to diagnose. Without proper diagnosis, the patient cannot get the proper treatment. It is more likely the patient visits the doctor headache-free so it is important to describe the symptoms in a very clear way.
When it comes to the symptoms of a migraine you need to know exactly what you are up against. Simply put, you do not know just how bad a migraine headache can be until you are struck with one. The symptoms can be quite serious, and if you are not careful they may shut your life down for a day or more.
