MIGRAINS

A migraine refers to a headache that causes severe pain beyond a normal headache. Migrains usually present with a throbbing, pulsing sensation along the side of the head. Migrains also often coincide with nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. These attacks can last anywhere between several hours to days, and can interfere with daily activities.

Early warning signs of a migrain can occur 1-2 days before migraine itself, with sometimes suble symptoms such as:

  • Constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Cravings for food
  • Stiffness of the neck
  • Fluid retention and frequent need to urinate
  • Yawning

For some patients, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or alongside the headache. This “aura” is described by patients as a visual disturbance, such as blind spots or hazy flashes of light. Other disturbances such as a physical tingling sensation on one side of the face or difficulty speaking may also herald the onset of a migrain.

Patients can use medications can help mitigate migraines and make them less painful or avoid them altogether.

Our mission is to help patients to return to work, improve their quality of life, reduce dependence on medication and healthcare providers, and avoid persistent injuries.
