Premonitory symptoms of migraine include a wide and heterogeneous collection of cognitive, psychic and physical changes preceding and forewarning of an attack by a few hours to 2-3 days. To date, premonitory symptoms have received little attention in the literature, being treated more as a curiosity than as a primary feature of migraine. This paper provides an extensive critical review of this neglected area of migraine research in the light of the recent advances in our understanding of the… 

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Premonitory Symptoms of Migraine in Childhood and Adolescence
TLDR
The wide presentation of premonitory symptoms in migraine in children and adolescents is discussed, and the importance of understanding how these early symptoms are mediated in order to ensure that targeted abortive therapies are developed in the future is understood.
The premonitory phase of migraine and migraine management
  • W. Becker
  • Medicine
    Cephalalgia : an international journal of headache
  • 2013
TLDR
There is some evidence that medication treatment during the premonitory phase of migraine has the potential to be helpful in selected patients with migraine, and both naratriptan and domperidone have been reported to be effective when given during thePremonitoryphase.
Headaches, Pathogenesis and Therapies
According to lots of authors the predisposition to the migraine attack is based on an excess of cortical excitability (and there are many evidence suggesting that the migraine attack may originate at
Pediatric vs. Adult Prodrome and Postdrome: A Window on Migraine Pathophysiology?
TLDR
Differences between children, adolescents and adults in prodromal and postdromal symptoms might contribute to the understanding of migraine neurobiology.
Premonitory symptoms in migraine patients
TLDR
The two studies confirm the high prevalence of PS in migraine at all ages, which should be taken into account in future studies both for an accurate diagnosis and for planning future preemptive clinical trials.
High prevalence of Dopaminergic Premonitory Symptoms in migraine patients with Restless Legs Syndrome: a pathogenetic link?
TLDR
The results could support a hypothetical dopaminergic imbalance in RLS and migraine, as the dopamine is involved in the pathogenesis of both disorders and it is responsible for the migraine DPS reported above.
Memory impairments and mental status in patients with migraine
Migraine is the second most common type of primary headache having a worldwide prevalence of 10-12% in the adult population. The disease is principally characterized by recurrent attacks of
From different neurophysiological methods to conflicting pathophysiological views in migraine: A critical review of literature
TLDR
Data of studies conducted in migraine through various evoked potentials techniques and non-invasive brain stimulation methods are reviewed, and in some cases reinterpreted according to more recent findings on migraine pathophysiology.
The Prevalence of Premonitory Symptoms in Paediatric Migraine: A Questionnaire Study in 103 Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Face changes seem to be a premonitory symptom peculiar to paediatric migraine, which is frequently reported by children and adolescents with migraine.
Tryptophan Catabolites and Migraine.
TLDR
The current work attempts to collect recent data on both serotonin and kynurenine research related to migraine and emphasizes the importance of further research on this topic.

Premonitory symptoms in cluster headache
  • E. Raimondi
  • Medicine
    Current pain and headache reports
  • 2001
TLDR
The author believes that premonitory symptoms have not been properly diagnosed and emphasizes the need to investigate their presence, because by knowing them advances can be made in the understanding of the physiopathology of this particular cephalalgia.
Premonitory symptoms in migraine without aura: a clinical investigation.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that patients with migraine attacks generally preceded by premonitory symptoms have a stronger constitutional migraine trait with a premature weakening of their antinociceptive adaptation systems to the environment and to stressful events.
Premonitory symptoms in migraine
TLDR
Using an electronic diary system, the authors show that migraineurs who report premonitory symptoms can accurately predict the full-blown headache.
Warning Symptoms in Migraine: Characteristics and Therapeutic Implications

  • Medicine

TLDR
The data suggest that the mechanism leading to a migraine attack can be operative 8–48 h before the headache begins and is possibly dopaminergically mediated.
Glyceryl trinitrate triggers premonitory symptoms in migraineurs
TLDR
This study shows that GTN‐induced triggering is common in patients, and remarkably reproducible, and will facilitate the use of the GTN model in studies requiring extensive planning, such as brain imaging, or where preventive questions are at issue.
Migraine With Aura and Migraine Without Aura: An Epidemiological Study
TLDR
The present findings suggest that MA and MO share the pain phase, and headache was, however, less severe and shorter lasting in MA than in MO.
Migraine prodromes separated from the aura: complete migraine.
TLDR
Detailed questioning of 50 patients with uncomplicated migraine has shown that 17 had symptoms that preceded the headache phase by several hours, and the term "complete migraine" is proposed for attacks that include prodromal symptoms.
On the Pathophysiology of Migraine—Links for “Empirically Based Treatment” with Neurofeedback
TLDR
The data support the hypothesis that a change in amplitudes of slow cortical potentials is caused by altered habituation during the recording session and this kind of neurofeedback can be characterized as “empirically based” because it improves habituation and it proves to be clinically efficient.
Association between dopamine receptor genes and migraine without aura in a Sardinian sample
TLDR
The data suggest that a genetic approach could be useful in providing molecular support to the hypothesis that hypersensitivity of the dopaminergic system may represent the pathophysiologic basis of migraine, at least in a subgroup of patients.
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF MIGRAINE: A NEW HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
The present hypothesis proposes that, regardless of the triggering factors associated with vasospasm, this will be followed by a common event--namely, reactive hyperaemia due to hypoxia, which could explain pain in migraine.
