Migraine – is a neurological disease, the most common and characteristic symptom of which is episodic or regular, strong and painful headaches in one half of the head (rarely two). At the same time there are no serious head injuries, stroke, brain tumors, but the intensity and pulsating character of pain is associated with vascular headache rather than a headache from the tension. The headache in the case of migraine is not associated with an increase or a drop sharp of arterial blood pressure, glaucoma or increased intracranial pressure (IIP).
The diagnostic criterions of migraine were proposed by the International Society of Headaches Study in 1988:
- Headaches as crisis lasting from 4 to 72 hours;
- Headache has at least two of the following characteristics: predominantly unilateral localization, alternating sides, at least it is bilateral, the pain is pulsatory with moderate or considerable intensity, it violates the daily activities and it is aggravated by physical activity;
- There must be at least one symptom accompanying the migraine: nausea, vomiting, photophobia or sound phobia.
