Psychological features consistent with migraine

MOOD SWINGS, DEPRESSION, IRRITABILITY, AGGRESSION, EXCITABILITY and LACK OF RESTFUL SLEEP and STRESS may initiate and/or aggravate migraine.

Aura: Moments before the headache, lasts 5min to 1hr

Auras are seen in few people. It consists of VISUAL LOSS, APEARANCE OF UNUSUAL OBJECTS ON SIGHT, PIN NEEDLE SENSATIONS, PROBLEMS WITH SPEECH.
