Most people understand that a typical migraine is often accompanied by sensitivity to light and noise, nausea, and dizziness or lightheadedness.

Some people, however, experience other symptoms as well. Other symptoms include but are not limited to irritability, chills, ringing or whooshing sound in ears, tingling in hands arms or face, heat intolerance, loose stools, indigestion, nasal congestion, visual changes, and fatigue.

Because every individual is unique, some may experience a few or many accompanying symptoms not typically associated with migraine.

To treat these symptoms, an individual’s usual rescue medication for migraine should be used and, in some cases, an additional medication may be indicated.

If you have questions about your unusual migraine symptoms, talk with your medical provider.
