Migraine is described as moderate to severe pain that can be throbbing, concentrated on one side of head, and which may include light and noise sensitivity or nausea or vomiting. All patients constantly search for methods for preventing migraine attacks.
Some patients may have side effects from medications, and others may find that medications are not helpful, so complementary integrative treatments like acupuncture may be used as an alternative treatment.
