"Migraine in a Split" portrays the complexity of migraine symptoms: the vision field is getting smaller, the person may see flashes of light - like shooting stars in front of the eyes - this is how the brain signals the beginning of a migraine. Migraine headaches start at the base of the skull and feel like a spike has been driven inside the head in to the eye. The pain is getting stronger. Light that goes in to the eyes also causes pain, which feels like a second spike. All face and skull muscles experience the sensation of being twisted and pulled away. Migraine symptoms also include nausea and photophobia.
