Migraine Headache

Migraine headaches are considered to be a severe form of headache. The illness however, is vastly more complex than this. Migraines can present with a range of symptoms which are independent of any head pain.

Migraine headaches are one form of headaches associated with an aura. This means you may feel dizzy, nauseous, or see scintillating strobe-like flashing lights among other things. These are warning signs to classic migraine sufferers that a headache is looming.

Predisposing factors that are known to be common triggers for these migraine headaches include wine, chocolate, caffeine, cheeses etc. If you get a migraine headache, minimal stimulus is usually helpful. This may include lying in a quiet, dimly lit room.

A migraine headache doesn’t have to have an aura before a patient gets it. These standard migraines which have no aura can be just as painful and debilitating. A common cause of standard migraines is tension in the upper back muscles and neck joints, from overworking.
