Almost 28.000 million Americans have migraines. This is a headache type and is really painful, appears with no warning and is unbearable.
Sometimes, people only see blurry spots and sometimes their heads feel pounding and they have to lie down all day long.
Vomiting, nausea and light sensitivity are the most commonly seen signs.
Many studies were made for this migraine headache.
Some showed that weather changes might cause this, hot climate regions, too much sugars daily and so on.
Also the changes in serotonin in the brain or reduced blood flow in the brain may be the cause.
