In this phase, the initial changes in the body are mood swings, constipation, yawning, food cravings, neck stiffness, increased thirst and frequent urination. This happens mostly one-two days before migraine attack.
People may get migraine with or without experiencing any aura. It may happen before and sometimes during the migraine attack. This phase exhibits the symptoms caused due to our nervous system like light flashes, loss of vision, weakness, Needle sensation, verbal difficulty etc. This phase may stay for half an hour to an hour.
