What type of migraine causes ongoing pain?

ANSWER

Don't try to endure a seemingly unending migraine. Ongoing pain -- pain that lasts longer than three days -- is a trait of status migrainosus. It can be caused by some medications or medication withdrawal.

The pain and nausea from this type of migraine can be so intense that you may need hospital care. So don't suffer long-lasting migraine without help. Seek medical care.
