Migraine is disturbance in the regulation of the tension upon the walls of the  blood vessels in the head-inside the brain and outside the brain. The characteristic feature is a pulsing pain in the head, usually concentrated in one half of the head, as in the eventual next fit the pain can occur in another side too. In classic migraine the fit occurs  in the morning, after getting up. For most patients there are the different symptoms before the fit-zig-zag lines, blurred vision in the visual field and others. After these features, which are consequences of the narrowing of the blood vessels, the fit occurs that is provoked by the widening of the blood vessels. At the beginning of the fit the patient feels a pulsing pain, which can have different frequency. The pain in the head may be accompanied by the feeling of “dried up lips”, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.  After the fit there are frequent signals for urinating.

The full rest can occur between the fits. There are 10-20 % migraine sufferers in the population, more than half of them  don’t consult the physician about their problems. The people of all age groups suffer this disease, 3 times more common in women than in men. During the pregnancy migraine fits (attacks) calm down but they occur again during the menstruation.

·         hipoglikemiya (low blood sugar);

·         Stress;

·         Depression;

·         Heaping of water in the organism;

·         Hormonal changes in dependence of the gynecological condition;

In exceptional rare cases this condition can lead to death.
