Premonitory Symptoms (continued)

I continue to think about the premonitory symptoms that many migraineurs experience. These symptoms preclude a migraine attack and include fatigue; muscle stiffness (especially in the neck, back, face); change in appetite / food cravings; changes in mood (including depression, irritability); difficulty concentrating; feeling cold; and sensitivity to light or sound.

What's going on in our heads that causes these changes? And, what causes these changes to take place up to several days before a migraine attack? It should come to no surprise to me that there is no answer to my question, since there is still no clear answer as to the cause of migraines. But, it still makes me wonder...
