Migraine

  

Migraine is common. About 1 in 4 women and about 1 in 12 men develop migraine at some point in their lives. Some people have frequent attacks - sometimes several a week. Others have attacks only now and then.

There are two main types of migraine attack. Migraine attack without aura - sometimes called common migraine. Migraine attack with aura - sometimes called classic migraine.

The cause of a migraine is not clear. A theory that used to be popular was that blood vessels in parts of the brain become narrower (go into spasm) which accounted for the aura. The blood vessels were then thought to open wide (dilate) soon afterwards, which accounted for the headache. However, this theory is not the whole story and, indeed, may not even be a main factor. It is now thought that some chemicals in the brain increase in activity and parts of the brain may then send out confusing signals which cause the symptoms. The exact changes in brain chemicals are not known. It is also not clear why people with migraine should develop these changes. However, something may trigger a change in activity of some brain chemicals to set off a migraine attack.
