pre- and post-migraine changes
Migraine sufferers typically have one or more of the following migraine stages:
Prodrome (one to two days before a migraine) – a subtle change in the body, including physical symptoms, like muscle cramps, or emotional feelings, like depression.
Aura (directly before or during a migraine attack) – various alterations in vision, hearing, touch, or speech. Some patients also suffer from muscular changes, such as spasms and weakness.
