A concise discussion of headache types, part 2: migraine.
ABSTRACT Nearly one in four United States households includes someone with migraine. However, because migraines are unpredictable and the symptoms vary and mirror those of other headache types and other illnesses, diagnosis is difficult, but not impossible. Literature lays claim to seven migraine types, some of which are discussed within this article, and although they have similar symptoms, some types have very unique symptoms. This article represents the first part of a discussion of migraine. The continuation of the discussion of migraine includes a discussion of migraine triggers and treatments, as well as compounded formulations for the treatment of migraine.
