Have you ever experienced excruciating pain on one side of the head and rushed to take painkillers thinking it was a headache but the pain didn’t go away? Chances are you may have suffered from a migraine. Migraines are characterized by repeated attacks of severe headaches with most pain being concentrated in one eye.

Any one between the ages of 10 and 50 years is susceptible to a migraine attack, though they are more common with women than men.
