Understanding and recognizing pre-migraine symptoms

Pre-migraine, called the prodrome stage, is one of the four stages of a migraine attack.

It can begin between a few hours to a few days before a full migraine attack takes place.

Pre-migraine symptoms may include mood changes, muscle pain, difficulty concentrating, fatigue and excessive yawning.

As soon as you recognize pre-migraine symptoms, you can opt for pain-relieving medication.

It is a good idea to avoid any known pre-migraine triggers by taking precautions.

It is important to take time to rest and relax your mind to prevent a full migraine attack.

Small amounts of caffeine can help relieve pain and enhance the effects of OTC pain relief medications.

You can also consult a doctor for migraine medication and a pre-migraine management plan.
