Woman having a migraine headacheHow can I know I am getting a migraine so I can treat it more quickly?

There are many symptoms which can occur prior to a migraine, letting you know in advance that the headache is coming. If you can learn to recognize your warning signs, you may be better able to prevent a full-fledged migraine.

Migraine symptoms can begin a day or two before an actual migraine, warning you of the impending pain. Keeping a headache diary can help you see a pattern of symptoms that indicate you are in the early phases of a migraine.

Sensory warning signs can include light sensitivity, seeing flashes of light or waving lines, or having blind spots. You could also have blurry vision or partial blindness. You may also be extra sensitive to both sound and touch, and you may notice some tingling in your arms or legs.

Prior to a migraine, you could also have some stomach issues, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. You may also find you need to urinate more frequently and feel more thirsty prior to a migraine. You could also have a stiff neck and food cravings.

Difficulty speaking, trouble concentrating, and confusion can also occur before a migraine. You may feel either hyperactive or more fatigued than usual. Excessive yawning can also be a sign that a migraine is on the horizon. Besides physical symptoms, you may also be moody or irritable.

Learning your migraine triggers and pre-migraine symptoms can be essential for being able to take control of your migraines. With this information, you may be able to prevent migraines or treat them more quickly and effectively, leaving you feeling much better!
