migraine with aura

An episodic headache (which accounts for up to 20% of all migraines) that lasts 4 to 72 hours, is associated with nausea and vomiting, as well as photo- and phonophobia, and often follows temporary neurological symptoms known as an aura. While auras can be motor or other sensory in nature, most are visual, the presence of which can be assessed by the visual aura rating scale (VARS). In most patients, the headaches are unilateral, pulsating and of moderate to severe intensity; the aura may not occur on the same side as the migraine. Patients are asymptomatic between episodes. There may be a family history of migraines and of travel sickness.
