What are the warning signs of status migrainosus?

ANSWER

  • The warning signs of status migrainosus are similar to those of a typical migraine. Along with pain in your head, you might also feel: Sensation of sparkling lights or other vision changes (a.k.a. aura)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Trouble thinking clearly

Because the condition lasts for at least 3 days, you’re also at risk for dehydration and sleep loss because of prolonged vomiting and pain.
