You Know the Signs

The idea of getting a premonition before a headache may sound farfetched or even supernatural to some. But if you've ever had a migraine, you likely know exactly what it means--the intense energy, fatigue, food cravings, and mood changes. You may even experience visual disturbances of flashing lights, zig-zag lines, or a temporary loss of vision. When you feel this "aura" coming on, you know what you're in for.
