What is it?

  • A migraine occurs when the blood vessels in the head or neck spasm or constrict, causing a temporary shortage of blood to the brain.  After a period of time (usually minutes) the blood vessels dilate, causing a “rush” of blood resulting in a headache.  Migraines are most common in women ages 10-46.
