Migraine headaches can be very painful, and when it becomes a reoccurring occurrence, a nuisance as well. This type of headache is known as a paroxysmal ailment. A migraine usually stays on just one side of the head and can be caused by different reasons, from mental tension from stress, to a disorder of the eye.
Sudden migraine attacks can occur from overworking your head muscles or neck muscles. This happens because the blood flow drops drastically from the muscles tightening and squeezing the arteries. When the muscles finally relax, the blood vessels stretch and the blood starts pumping and pushes the vessels more. This can bring on the severe pain of a migraine.
