What Are The Causes Migraine?

Updated on July 25, 2011

Migraine is a painful and very uncomfortable condition. When we experience it, we can't concentrate with our work and the pain makes us irritable. It is important to identify what its causes in order to avoid experiencing it.

According to, this kind of headache results from a combination of the body's releasing of chemicals from the nerve fibers that coil around blood vessels as well as enlargement of these blood vessels. At this time, the artery that is located on the outside of the skull which is just under the skin of the temple (temporary artery) enlarges. When a person experiences migraine, the sympathetic nervous systems respond with feelings of diarrhea, nausea and at times vomiting.
