Migraines are a recurrent headache that might be accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, and fatigue. They often include a stage called aura in which people experience visual disturbances. Studies have shown that migraines affect two to three times more women than men.

About two-thirds of people, who suffer from migraines, cannot carry on with their daily activities when they have an attack. However, there are many relatively simple remedies that can reduce or completely eliminate migraine attacks.
