Migraine is a condition, in which a person experiences tremendous headache. Generally, this headache affects only one side of the head and body. Migraine attacks are more common to those people who take too much of stress or are workaholic. In such people, the blood flow in the brain muscles drops, as a result of too much load, squeezing the arteries. When the person suddenly relaxes, these tight brain muscles expand, stretching the blood vessel walls. The blood pumped with each heartbeat, then, pushes the vessels further, causing immense pain. Though the exact cause of migraine has not been identified, there are a number of factors that can trigger the severe headache.
