What does a migraine feel like?

A migraine is a strong, deep, often throbbing headache that gets worse gradually, with a feeling of strong pressure that can last from a few hours to several days. Unlike a headache caused by stress, the pain is usually worse on one side of the head. Migraines are often accompanied by an aura or other visual disturbances (often described as flashing or pulsing lights) and may also cause nausea to the point of vomiting.
