Migraine is the name given to a type of headache that can be severe, often felt on one side of the head (behind the eye) and lasting a couple of hours or up to a few days. Young children who get migraine may feel sick and vomit, but may not complain of a headache. Migraine tends to get less frequent and less severe as a person gets older.
