Headache can be caused a migraine attack (from French “migraine” is translated as “half of the head”). Moreover, the attack, as a rule, captures either the right or left side of the head. Sometimes the pain moves from one half to the other and very rarely spreads to the whole head. Typically, an attack begins with a blackout in the eyes, flickering of “flies”, geometric shapes, and even “lightning bolts”. Then there is an unbearable throbbing pain in half of the head. It is often accompanied by dizziness, general malaise, nausea, vomiting, which, however, slightly alleviates the condition.
