The word “headache” seems inadequate to describe the intense throbbing and pain that characterizes a migraine. Migraines are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. While their causes are not fully known, hormonal changes, stress, certain food additives, alcohol, caffeine and certain foods, such as salty or processed foods, are common migraine triggers.
