Migraine

Treatment Online

A migraine is an episodic neurological disease that causes severe headaches. Described by most people who experience migraines as having the worst headache of your life, it affects 17% of women and 6% of men.

Migraines are usually characterized by feeling throbbing or pulsating pain on one side of your head only, and experiencing a variety of other physical and neurological symptoms you wouldn’t expect from a regular headache.

In most cases, a migraine diagnosis is based on a thorough medical history and a description of the symptoms experienced during migraine attacks. There is typically no need for specific diagnostic tests. However, if the symptoms are atypical or severe, or if there are concerns about other underlying conditions, additional tests or imaging studies may be considered.

Migraine prevention involves a combination of lifestyle adjustments and, in some cases, medications to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks. It typically includes identifying and avoiding triggers such as specific foods, stress, and irregular sleep patterns. Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, managing stress through relaxation techniques, and staying well-hydrated are essential components. For individuals with frequent or severe migraines, healthcare providers may prescribe preventive medications, which can be taken regularly to reduce the likelihood of migraine episodes. Ultimately, effective migraine prevention strategies are personalized to each individual's specific triggers and needs.
