In general, migraine can be classified into Migraine with Aura and Migraine without Aura, of which the former is less common.

Migraine with Aura

(Formally Known as Classical Migraine)

In this type, the pre-attack is pronounced, and accompanied by neurological symptoms mainly connected with vision – flashing lights and distorted sight. Some may also get momentary inability to speak or weakness of one part (not one side) of the body.

Migraine Without Aura

(Formally Known as Common Migraine)

In this type the pre-attack symptoms are absent or slight although there can be a feeling of being unwell or irritable. Headache is often followed by nausea leading to vomiting. The time cycle in both cases usually last from a few hours to as long as two or three days, often followed by another day or two of exhaustion before full recovery.
