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.
