The treatment of migraine


Migraine is characterized by a paroxysmal nervous disturbance of which headache is the most constant element. The pain is seldom absent and may exist alone, but it is commonly accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and it is often preceded by a sensory aura. The symptoms are frequently one-sided. Similar symptoms are occasionally caused by an angioma or a neoplasm, and then require different treatment.
