Migraine is manifested by attacks of severe, pulsating headache, which is localized in one half of the head and repeats periodically, so says Dr. Denis Slinkin.
In addition, in most cases, headache is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, poor tolerance of bright light, loud sounds, and after an attack comes lethargy and drowsiness.
As a rule, migraine is a family disease. 72.6% of people inherit migraine from their mother. Serotonin metabolic disorder in the brain is thought to be inherited. Another opinion is that it inherits a violation of the regulation of the tone of blood vessels in the brain.
When a person is exposed to a number of environmental factors, this defect is manifested, begins a headache attack. Although for people who do not suffer from migraine attacks, these factors will be absolutely harmless, so says Dr. Denis Slinkin.
