migraine causes episodes of severe or moderate headache lasting from several
hours to three days. It is often
accompanied by nausea and vomiting and a heightened sensitivity to bright
lights and noise. Some evidence suggests
that migraine pain is one symptom of several due to a disorder of the serotonergic control system. Some are genetically caused, while others are based on hormonal
