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.

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.
