Migraine symptoms aren’t just in your head
When a migraine is on its way, some people say they can feel it coming. It’s like their bodies have a built-in warning system.1 Getting to know these signs of a migraine can help you take action at the best time.1
Migraine warning signs
The signs of a migraine can be subtle. You might feel tired, or become very sensitive to noise or light.2
As the pain gets closer, your body may also send visual migraine warning signs. You might see flashing lights or sparks, bright zigzagging lines, or a blind spot. Experts call this special type of headache "migraine with aura."2, 3
About one in five people who get migraines experience migraine auras, and they’re less common in women than in men.3
Once a full-blown migraine strikes, you may feel moderate — or even unbearable — pain. While everybody experiences migraine headaches differently, common migraine symptoms include:
- Pulsating or throbbing pain on one side of the head
- Sensitivity to light or sound1
