Migraine

This is a specific form of headache, usually unilateral (one side of the head), associated with nausea or vomiting, visual disturbances such as scintillating light waves or zigzag fashion. The client may experience a visual aura before an attack actually happens. This is usually called a classical migraine. There are other types of migraine:

• Ophthalmoplegic migraine — this causes painful, red and watery eyes.

• Neuropathic migraine — it causes one-sided paralysis and weakness of the face and body.

• Abdominal migraine — this can affect children with recurring attacks of abdominal pain, sometimes accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

Migraines can be treated with simple analgesia or more specialised anti-migraine medication.
