A migraine is a recurrent form of a headache that typically forms on side of the head and causes severe throbbing or a pulsing sensation. It’s a neurological disease that’s not to be confused with an average headache one may experience from time to time. Often, a migraine is accompanied by vomiting, nausea, and light and sound sensitivity. Because it’s a primary headache, i.e. it isn’t caused due to an underlying or another existing medical condition, it can be especially tricky to diagnose.
Migraines tend to get worse over time and can last for days at a time. Most individuals who struggle with migraines often experience a warning symptom (aka aura) that occurs just before the headache develops. This may include blind spots, flashes of light, difficulty speaking, or a tingling sensation.
Most migraine treatments involve pain-relieving and/or preventive medications. These medicines are meant to reduce the severity of pain or prevent the likeliness of a migraine from developing. However, they’re not always enough to keep the headaches at bay. That’s where our team comes in the picture.
