Some common symptoms associated with migraines include:

  • Intense pain in your head
  • Seeing bright spots or flashes
  • Other vision problems
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Throbbing or pulsing head pain
  • Pain on one or both sides of your head
  • Nausea and vomiting

If left untreated, migraine pain might last 4-72 hours. It can occur several times monthly or more often in some cases, as everybody is different.
