Introduction

Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder that is mostly characterized by severe headaches and aura. Headache is called Migraine if it meets four out of the following five criteria: Pulsating (the headache is pulsating or throbbing) One day (the headache lasts one day, actually between 4 and 72 hours) Unilateral (the headache is only on one side of the brain) Nauseating (the headache is accompanied by nausea or vomiting) Dibilitating (the headache precludes normal function/daily activities) There are many parallels between pain and Migraine and therefore many of the literature discussion for pain also holds true for Migraine. This section deals with the literature that is specific to Migraine.
