Classic Migraine Symptoms to Watch For..


Classic migraine has the same symptoms as the common migraine plus the visual problems.

One symptom the common migraine doesn't have that the classic has is the migraine with aura. The migraine aura can be the first sign of the migraine attack. The visual disturbance starts anywhere from ten to thirty minutes before the onset of the migraine. I just talked to an eighteen year old girl that had to go to the emergency room because of a migraine. She had the aura, and explained the symptoms which were frighting to her.

While no two common migraine sufferers have the exact same symptoms, the same applies for the classic migraines.

Symptoms of the classic migrain aura.

Some of these symptoms may be experienced but not all.

  • Flashing lights
  • Spots
  • Stars
  • Wavy lines,
  • Color splashes
  • Waves in front of the eyes
  • Flicker
  • Sparkle
  • Shimmer
  • Blind spot
  • Tunnel vision
  • Lost site for awhile

All suffer with these annoying symptoms with classic migrains..

Other than visual problems, here are some more to watch for

  • Feel weakness in the arm or leg
  • Trouble speaking or pronouncing words
  • Dizzy headed
  • Tingling in the face or hands
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • The need to pee a lot
  • Dry mouth or diarrhea may accommodate classic migraine also

This migraine attack may be present for a couple of days.

Other than taking preventive medicines what can be done to offset these migraines? The way to manage headaches is to learn all about headaches, what can trigger them, and then stay away from the migraine trigger if you have control over it. This works for all headaches, not just the common, and classic headache. The better a migraine sufferer takes care of their body, and pays attention to what it's saying, the more control you have over all types of headaches and migraines.

All migraines can be triggered by basically the same things. Only the migraine triggers won't be the same in all sufferers. Print off a diary to fill in, and read about as many migraine triggers as you can. Foods or beverages are a good place to start.

Phases of classic migraine.

There are five phases to a classic migraine, but all sufferers may not have all five.

  • The first is called the Prodrome phase. It happens hours or days before the headache in more than half of migraine sufferers. It can be gastrointestinal symptoms pertaining to the stomach, happiness or depressed, bright lights bothering you, having fatigue, and loss of appetite.The symptoms vary greatly in this phase.
  • The second phase is called the aura.This is the one we explained above.
  • The third phase of the classic migraine is the pain itself, or the headache.
  • The 4th is called the termination phase. This is the phase when one finally has some relief of the migraine. The migraine pain gradually decreases in intensity.
  • The last phase called the postdrome may or may not be had also. While some feel drained, others feel refreshed, and some of the symptoms may linger for awhile.You may feel refreshed, but my wife was always drained.

With the classic migraine there's warning that it's on its way.

By taking an abortive medicine, and laying down in a dark room you may find complete migraine relief. By doing this, the migraine may be cut short.

There's no diagnostic test to verify the present of migraines. If migraines have got to the place where they're interfering with everyday life, a headache specialist is a must. Anything less will end up causing extra pain. It'll take a headache specialist to give the approximate treatment. By visiting a general practitioner one won't find the knowledge of headaches that is needed. You won't received any in-depth lifestyle guidance for the classic migrane, such as what to stay away from. And many things are widely recognized as immediate triggers of migraines.
