Relieving the Pain of Migraines
Nearly everyone suffers from headache pain occasionally, but if you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from migraines, you know how devastating they can be. It is estimated that 90 percent of all chronic headaches are migraines.
The migraine clinic at the Women’s Health Center, is here to help you manage your migraines and improve the quality of your life.
Common Symptoms of Migraine Headaches
While migraine symptoms vary among sufferers, common symptoms include:
- Severe, reoccurring intense pain on one side of the head
- Extreme sensitivity to sensorial stimulation
- Visual disturbances
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Tingling or numbness in the extremities or face
The fact that migraine syndrome involves multiple symptoms that differ from person to person and often change with each migraine episode can make diagnosing the condition challenging. That is why seeking a medical diagnosis is important.
Treating Migraine Symptoms
Many migraines sufferers can control their symptoms by working with a physician to identify the substances and situations that trigger their episodes and learning to avoid them.
If you suffer from chronic migraine episodes, additional clinical therapies may be necessary to get your migraines under control. There are many treatment options for migraines, including oral medications, injections to relax the tight muscles and clock nerve pain, and alternative treatments such as hypnotherapy, acupuncture and massage. The migraine clinic at the Women’s Health Center provides a full complement of diagnostics and treatment options for migraine sufferers.
