Classic Migraines: Commence with warning signs such as flashing lights and colours. In some cases, people experience double-vision or temporary, partial blindness. One may also experience a prickly, burning, or even a weak sensation on one side of the body. These symptoms may last about 15 to 30 minutes either before or in conjunction with throbbing head pains.

Common Migraines: Occur without warning signs. Common Migraines may commence more slowly than classic migraines, but may persist longer. The pains vary in location, but are generally localized to only one side of the head.
