Migraines are moderate to severe headaches, which are usually experienced on one side of the head and often associated with other symptoms such as feelick sick and sensitivity to light and sound. Some migraines also have associated symptoms of "Aura" often seen as flashing lights before the migraines occur. 

Migraines can be extremely debilitating making it difficult to perform daily activities. Sufferers may experience migraines either infrequently such as once in a few years, or very frequently upto several times a week. 

The cause of migraines is not completely understood, though it is thought to be due to temporary changes in the chemicals, nerves and blood vessels in the brain. They can often have trigger factors such as certain foods, stress, tiredness, lack of sleep, bright lights, lound noises, environmental changes and monthly periods in women. 
Treatments for migraines include painkillers to treat the pain, anti-sickness tablets to help with symptoms of nausea and vomitting and specific migraine treatments called Triptans, which help to restore the chemical imbalances in the brain to relieve symptoms of the migraine. 

Triptans include Sumatriptan, Rizatriptan and Zolmitriptan. These are prescription-only treatments which help to reverse chemical changes in the brain and help to narrown the blood vessels in the brain, which are thought to be a cause of migraines. They are available as tablets, nasal sprays and melts and usually work within 2 hours.
