Often those in our families and workplace notice things about us that we miss ourselves. It took about 15 years before my husband picked up on “the tell” in my behavior to accurately predict an oncoming migraine. I could not stop yawning. Migraine signs, like yawning, warn you an attack is coming.
Watch for Migraine signs so you can try to stop an attack before it starts.
Migraine attacks often begin with a premonitory phase. According to a 2012 report published in the medical journal Cephalalgia,
Up to 87% of patients with migraine may experience premonitory symptoms, although some studies have provided estimates as low as 33%. In selected patients, premonitory symptoms may be relatively reliable predictors of a migraine attack to follow. Both naratriptan (like Amerge) and domperidone (like Motilium) have been reported to be effective when given during the premonitory phase (American Migraine Foundation. Americanmigrainefoundation.org. ‘>2).”
