Common Migraine


  • Unilaterality with side shift of pain was present in 75% in the common migraine group; in 34% of the patients, a combined pattern, i.e. bilateral headache unilaterality with sideshift was present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Intravenous Administration

  • The discussion focuses on the need to distinguish classic from common migraine headache sufferers in assessment and treatment outcome studies, as well as suggesting future avenues of research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We suggest that determination of MET levels in platelets and plasma may be a useful marker to discriminate between TH and common migraine. The rise in MET during attacks may be directed against the ictal increase of serotonin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Because serotonin, released from platelets, has been suggested to initiate migraine, a decreased platelet serotonin content, attained by a reduced intake of serotonin and the serotonin precursor tryptophan, might be beneficial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Auditory Hallucination
  • It's a neurological anomaly that may render one confused, dizzy, extremely sensitive to bright light, experience unusual bodily sensations, distorted vision, and visual and auditory hallucinations.[naturalnews.com]
