Some migraines hit without warning.
Others come with a signal, maybe a visual disturbance, before the pain sets in.
Most migraines come with intense pain and a bunch of other unpleasant symptoms.
Like heightened sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, lightheadedness. You know, laugh-a-minute stuff.
