  2. It is common to experience nausea or vomiting during migraine attacks.
  3. Migraine symptoms last minimum 4 hours, but can last for months.
  4. Headache is only one of the 4 potential phases of a migraine.
  5. Unlike headaches migraines are often associated with aura, which can result in severe visual disturbances, difficulty communicating, motor weakness, among other symptoms.
