Common early signs of a migraine


Well, the early signs of migraine are not the same for all, some symptoms happen more often than others. Such as, you might need to pee more often or you may yawn a lot. You could crave certain sweet foods as compare to other days, especially chocolate. So, here is the list of early signs of a migraine.




Some people terribly depressed or irritable in the days or hours before a migraine. On the counterpart, some people feel a sense of intense happiness.




You may feel unusually tired before a migraine, as it is an early sign of a migraine. And too much or too little sleep could be the cause of the same. Try to figure out how sleep connects to your symptoms. That can help you stay away from your triggers and possibly keep a migraine from coming on.


Sensitivity to light or sound


These are common early signs of a migraine, and they often continue through the headache and post-headache stages. Loud noises or bright light l can even trigger a second one as you’re getting over the first.

Pain relievers


Whether they’re prescription or over-the-counter, the reason behind having these get relieved as soon as you notice the pain But taking too much or taking them too often can cause some other complications such as stomach ulcers and possibly withdrawal headaches when you stop.


Lie down in a dark room

Try heat or cold
