Four Stages Of Migraine 

The four stages of migraine are prodrome, aura, attack, and post-drome. It is not essential that everyone who has migraine experiences all these stages. 

  • Prodrome 

A subtle change is experienced one or two days before the migraine which is a kind of warning for the person. The symptoms that are included in this stage are constipation, neck stiffness, frequent yawning, increased urination, mood changes, fluid retention, and food cravings. 

  • Aura 

Its occurrence varies from person to person in some it occurs before the migraine and in some, it occurs during the migraine. These are reversible systems or indications of nervous systems. Some of the symptoms of the aura are visual phenomena, vision loss, difficulty speaking, and numbness or weakness in the face. It is highly misinterpreted as a stroke or seizure. Approximately 15-20% of people that have migraines experience aura. 

  • Attack 

A migraine could last for 4 to 72 hours if left untreated. Its occurrence varies from person to person. It causes highly devastating pulsating throbbing pain which leads to nausea and vomiting. Generally, it starts in half of the head and then spreads to another half. 

  • Post-drome

It is the last stage which is also known as a migraine “hangover” and approximately 80% of patients experience it. After a migraine episode, a person gets highly drained and feels immense weakness. 

Causes 

The causes of migraines are not fully understood but environmental factors and genetics are the two major factors that play an important role in it. There are several kinds of research going on in which the role of serotonin in migraines is being considered.
