    There are lot of people who get migraine are about 11 out of 100. The headache appears between the age of 10 and 46. In some case migraine occurs in life of a person having no history such as headaches. Mostly migraine occurs in women rather than men, and it also runs in families. Migraine is the result of abnormal brain activity which is triggered by stress, certain foods, environmental factors, or something else. The exact chain of the events remains unclear. Scientists believe that migraine occurs due to changes in blood vessels in the brain. Nowadays, most of the medical experts believe that the attack starts in the brain itself, where it involves nerve pathways and chemicals. These changes affect blood flow in the brain and the surrounding tissues.
    Migraine attacks might be triggered by:
    Alcohol
    Allergic reactions
    Bright lights
    Certain odors or perfumes
    Changes in sleep patterns
    Exercise
    Loud Noises
