Vascular Headache

Common migraines generally cause intense pain that is either one-sided or bilateral and is located in the temporal or frontal areas. They most often begin in the morning or on weekends and is associated with nausea and vomiting, photophobia, red and tearing eyes, and understandably moodiness and irritability. Initially, the pain is more often unilateral and throbbing, but later, it becomes more constant and generalized. The duration of most migraines is a few hours to a few days, and the frequency is usually one to three per month, depending on the presence and intensity of precipitating factors.
