Men and women suffer from migraines, but if you look at the statistics, women tend to have more migraines than men. Now, there’s a couple things about migraine headaches you should know about. First all, they are often preceded by physicians call an aura. That’s actually a feeling that something is going to happen. This particular aura is a sense. There might be a strange smell, there might be a strange taste, something like that that just doesn’t make sense. This particular aura then can be looked at and evaluated and then be used as a warning that the migraine’s coming on.

Early Diagnosis of Migraines Is Important

Headache

As many as one out of five people suffer from migraine headaches. These headaches are usually quite severe and they are preceded by an aura, or a strange sensation, like a flashing of light or a strange smell. They’re often diagnosed as sinus headaches, tension headaches, or a variety of other types of head pain, but a new study out of Columbia and highlighted by the Journal of the American Medical Association is stressing the importance of early diagnosis. That’s because the cycle of a migraine can often be cut short through the use of drugs called Triptans. These medications are available in a wide variety of forms, including pills, inhalers, and even injections. Migraines can be unusual. They don’t always cause headaches, and they can actually cause a wide variety of symptoms from visual disturbances to stomach problems. Migraines need to be taken seriously. Clearly they are a problem that have to be dealt with.

A migraine headache is one of those insidious things that can occur. Migraine headaches often occur with a warning, a kind of a warning sign that there’s something going on. What happens is you feel a sense that there’s an aura; a strange smell, a strange feeling, a strange zigzagging of lights, something that’s unusual that occurs before a severe headache can occur. It’s very important that when you’re dealing with headaches, you understand these are problems that need to be dealt with, and can be dealt with, effectively.

A Look at Migraine Headaches

Migraine headaches are very interesting. They’re difficult to treat because in many cases it’s tough to tell if someone has a migraine. The thing about migraine headache that’s important to realize is there’s often some sort of aura, some sort of sense that something’s not right. Perhaps there’s a strange smell. The smell of coffee when there is none, or a zigzagging of lights, that sort of thing. Migraine headaches can be treated with medication, especially if they’re treated what we call prophylactically, before the headache occurs because you sense it’s coming on. It’s a very good way to approach it.

Recognizing Migraine Headaches

Recognizing Migraine Headaches

Migraine headaches are not a problem for as many people as you think. Now, we’re not saying migraine headaches are not a big problem; they are. But, many people who have tension headaches and other types of headaches say they have migraines. One of the ways you can tell if you have migraine is you get a strange sense, or an aura, a feeling that the headache is about to start. That’s classic for a migraine; something like bright lights or a strange smell. Secondly, the pain is only relieved if you get into a quite area…into a room. Then it starts to relax and reduce. That’s one of the ways we deal with it as well.
