A patient may experience varying types of headaches, including different forms of migraine. The 2 most frequent forms are migraine without aura (previously known as common migraine) and migraine with aura (previously known as classic migraine and encompassing headaches referred to as complicated, ophthalmic, or hemiplegic migraines). Migraine equivalents or migraine variants also occur and are differentiated by patient history.
