Migraine is characterized by periodic headache, which is typically unilateral and often associated with vomiting and visual disturbance
In many patients, however, the headache is bitemporal and generalised and there may be no associated focal visual or neurological disturbance.
Approximately half of the patients who suffer from migraine have an affected relative, suggesting a genetic predisposition. Dietary factors, include chocolate, cheese, and alcohol may precipitate attacks, and episodes may occur more frequently peri- menstrually or in patients taking oral contraceptives. Stress and anxiety may initiate attacks or lead to perpetuation of headache and both stress and migraine headache not uncommonly co-exist.
The condition usually starts after puberty and continues until late middle life. Attacks occur at intervals which vary from a few days to several months, and last for hours to days. Premonitory symptoms occur in some patients in the form of zig- zag lines, flashing coloured lights, or defects in the visual field and in others dysphagia, hemiparesis may develop in association with the headache. The headache is usually in the frontal region and spreads to affect the whole of one side of the head, but may become generalised. The pain is severe and throbbing, and may be associated with vomiting, dimness of vision, pallor, and prostration, which may necessitate the patient taking to bed in a darkened room.
Sanguinaria: right sided headache, every seventh day, increasing and decreasing with the sun; better by lying down in a quiet dark room, vomiting, and sleeping.
Spigelia: pain beneath frontal eminence and temples, extending to eyes; periodical, violent and throbbing pain, which begins in the occiput mostly during mornings and spreads over the head to settle over the left eye and left temple; aggravation from touch, noise, turning; better by lying on right side with head high and by firm pressure.
Iris Versicolor: Migraine due to over exertion especially in students and teachers. There is headache on the right front and temples, beginning with a blur before the eyes, usually relapsing after mental strain. Headache with nausea.
