An acute migraine is a headache that usually occurs on one side of the head, causing severe pain, pulsing, or throbbing. Also called episodic migraines, acute migraines are often accompanied by other symptoms, including extreme sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, vomiting, irritability, and neck stiffness. The headache may interfere with your daily life and cause difficulty focusing your eyes. Sometimes triggered by stress, acute migraines are those that occur less than 15 days per month, whereas chronic migraines occur more often than that.
