Few things can temporarily disable someone like a migraine headache. From visual disturbances, like blind spots or flashing lights, to physical weakness and difficulty communicating, migraine can debilitate its sufferers for hours – even days – at a time.

And with 1 billion people worldwide – including 18% of U.S. women and 6% of men – suffering from migraines, it’s more important than ever to understand the symptoms, triggers and treatment options for these chronic headaches.

That’s why we compiled a comprehensive infographic about the causes of – and treatments for – migraine headaches. You’ll learn the telltale signs that distinguish migraine from other headaches, including nausea, sensory disturbances and numbness in the extremities. You’ll also discover the most common migraine causes, like stress and alcohol – as well as some less common triggers, like alcohol. And most importantly, you’ll learn the preventative steps you can take to keep headaches at bay, such as staying hydrated and avoiding eye strain. Take a look at the infographic below for more details:
