Migraine Headache Relief
Definition: Migraine headaches are often severe episodic pain or discomfort located in the head, scalp, jaw, eyes, or neck region, frequently associated with nausea, vomiting, and auras. While migraine headaches are classified as a vascular headache migraines are actually a result of an increased neurological sensitivity in the brain.
Migraine Headache Information
Migraines: Migraines are the second most common type of headache in America and may afflict up to 12% of the population or 28 million people. The pain due to migraines is most often of sudden onset and is described as excruciating, intense, throbbing, or pounding. Migraines are often associated with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound. The migraine sufferer is mostly totally disabled for at least a full day during the acute phase of the migraine headache. Pain due to migraine headaches may be isolated to one area of the head, isolated to one side of the head, or may spread over the entire head and include pain behind the eyes. Migraine headache sufferers usually suffer with recurrent episodes of headache. The frequency of the headaches may vary from daily, and in rare cases, to once every several months. These headaches usually begin during the day or evening, are self-limited, and resolve with or without treatment within 6 to 72 hours. While migraine headaches are officially classified as vascular headaches, these headaches are now believed to be a result of over-reactive nerves inside the brain which, when triggered, result in a sudden constriction, followed by a sudden relaxation or dilatation, of the blood vessels of the brain. The sudden constriction may result in initial transient neurological changes, called an aura, such as visualizing flashing lights, dark spots in the vision (known as scotoma), hearing sounds, having a recurrent taste in the mouth, or transient numbness with or without weakness of the face or extremities. About 20% of migraine sufferers develop auras. Occasionally, migraine headaches may result in transient loss of consciousness, numbness or weakness, making differentiating from a stroke very difficult. Migraine headaches may occur in children as well as adults. In adults, migraines are more common in women. One of the most common causes of regularly recurrent migraine headaches in females is the female menstrual cycle. Many other triggers may precipitate the migraine headache including foods such as chocolate and red wine, food additives such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), sulfites, nitrates, and artificial sweeteners, fragrances, alcohol, cigarette smoke, or bright lights.
Of course, for headaches that are suspected to be a result of any of the life-threatening causes noted above, emergency services (911) should be contacted immediately. However, treatments of headaches due to benign causes vary and depend on the type of headache. Many causes of benign headache pain may be treated, such as visual correction, improved medical treatment of high blood pressure. Tension headache pain may be improved with a change in lifestyle, a reduction of work hours, relaxation techniques, or improved rest and regular moderate exercise. Migraine headache pain may respond to regular rest, moderate exercise, and an avoidance of triggers. Physical therapy and nerve injections are sometimes used to control headache pain. Medical treatments for migraine headaches have improved over the past decade with the introduction of the class of medications known as the “triptans” such as sumatriptan. However, these medications do not always help, especially if not used as soon as the symptoms start, and can be associated with severe side effects such as vomiting.
The standard treatments for moderate to severe or acute or chronic headache pain are over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription narcotic and non-narcotic medication. As most patients who suffer with this type of headache pain soon realize, these treatments are usually not sufficient and many, especially the oral medications, are associated with serious side effects such as sedation, nausea, constipation, and even addiction. Extended use of some over-the counter (OTC) medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen may even result in stomach ulcers, kidney failure, heart failure, and liver failure. Many headache sufferers often search for alternative solutions to the usual over-the-counter and prescription medications.
