The two most common migraine types include a migraine with aura and migraine without aura.
Migraine with Aura once called complicated migraine, is a type of a migraine which involves visual disturbances and other symptoms that appear up to an hour before an actual migraine and usually last no more than an hour. A person can temporarily lose vision. Less frequent symptoms of a migraine with aura include tingling, numbness or muscle weakness on one side of the body, speech difficulties, and confusion. Symptoms that precede to a headache are nausea, loss of appetite, and increased sensitivity to light, sounds, or noise.
Migraine without Aura, once called a common migraine, is the most frequent type of a migraine and the symptoms include moderate to severe pulsating headache pain usually just on one side of the head. It comes with blurred vision, confusion, fatigue, nausea, mood changes, as well as increased sensitivity to sounds and light. These headaches usually last four to 72 hours and are repeated a few times a year to even a few times per week in severe and chronic cases of migraines. This type of migraine is prone to worsen with frequent use of migraine medication.
