Migraines are more than simply a headache; they’re a widespread chronic brain illness that affects about 12% of India’s population. Migraine sufferers have “attacks” that involve moderate to severe pain, gastrointestinal symptoms, and sensory disruptions such as light, sound, movement, and smell sensitivity.

Although the specific aetiology of migraine is unknown, clinical history and genetic investigations indicate that it runs in families. Experts, on the other hand, view migraine as a neurovascular condition in which neurons (brain cells) cause blood vessel changes. The aberrant activation of the trigeminovascular system, a portion of the brain responsible for picking up feeling from the face and head, is a defining aspect of a migraine attack.
