Abstract

Migraine headache is a chronic and debilitating disorder that affects approximately 17% of all adult women and 5% of all men. The duration of an attack may be between 4 and 72 hours, but typically lasts one whole day. Migraines are frequently associated with nausea and vomiting in the majority of sufferers, as well as other symptoms such as sensitivity to light and sound. In this review, we separately discuss the pathophysiology of both migraine headaches and emesis, as well as the effect of migraines on gastric motility. We attempt to decipher the complex interplay between the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system within the context of delayed gastric emptying and migraine-associated emesis.
