More than 29.5 million Indian suffer from migraine, with women being affected 3 times more often than men. This vascular headache is most commonly experienced between the ages of 15 and 55, and 70% to 80% of sufferers have a family history of migraine. Migraine is often misdiagnosed as sinus headache or tension-type headache. 

Many factors can trigger migraine attacks, such as alteration of sleep-wake cycle; missing or delaying a meal; medications that cause a swelling of the blood vessels; daily or near daily use of medications designed for relieving headache attacks; bright lights, sunlight, fluorescent lights, TV and movie viewing; certain foods; and excessive noise. Stress and/or underlying depression are important trigger factors that can be diagnosed and treated adequately. 

Migraine characteristics can include:
 
- Pain typically on one side of the head 
- Pain has a pulsating or throbbing quality 
- Moderate to intense pain affecting daily activities 
- Nausea or vomiting 
- Sensitivity to light or sound 
- Visual disturbances or aura
