Common Migraine Symptoms
Migraine headaches can cause many different symptoms, but are characteristically associated with pain in the head. Before the onset of a migraine attack, many people notice blurring of vision, flashing lights, see “stars,” or even can have unusual smell sensations. The vision disturbances that occur prior to the onset of the head pains are referred to as the aura. This can be followed by a pounding pain on the sides or front of the head, often with a pulsating sensation.
