Certain signs and symptoms of migraines headaches are used to classify headaches:
- At least 5 previous headache incidents of the same kind

- Having at least two of the following characteristics: one-sided pain, throbbing pain, moderate-to-severe pain, and pain that interferes with, worsens, or prevents regular activity are also examples of one-sided pain.
- Having at least one related symptom: nausea and/or vomiting, or reaction to sound and light if those are not present.
