What are Migraines?

Migraines are often excruciating headaches that present themselves with other symptoms like feeling sick at the stomach. Some migraines have no pain at all, but they come with eye disturbances and other signs like nausea. The symptoms and pain can range from a few to several disturbances at the same time. Migraines can last for hours or days. You can even have symptoms that are different each time you have a migraine. 

The ill feelings diminish the quality of life for sufferers because they interfere with work, home, and social life. People can have problems as little as once or twice a month, or he or she can have migraines every day. Having a headache or other migraine symptoms more often than every other day needs needs to be addressed. As one of the country's leading experts in Nutrition Response Testing, I can help you overcome pain, without medications that do not alleviate the cause of your migraines.

There is more than one kind of a migraine. Some attacks come with no pain, but affect eyesight and cause severe stomach issues. Others cause extreme pain and cause problems with the eyes and stomach. Cluster migraines cover most of the head and come with intense burning sensations while others form from a problem in the neck. One of the hardest things to understand about migraines is that they can have a broad range of symptoms from one time to the next. 

Some people find triggers that warn them of an impending headache while others get no warning at all. Since a migraine can change, it makes it difficult to treat some patients. Pinpointing the source of the migraines is the key to fixing the issue. 

Symptoms of Migraines

A migraine sufferer can have a few, all, or varying degrees of symptoms, and many medical experts believe that migraines are hereditary because family members seem to have similar issues. A diagnosis by a trusted and local medical expert is necessary to confirm or rule out migraines and to help patients lead a life with more value and better health. 
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Eye disturbances like squiggly lines, dots, blindness, or auras
  • Pain ranging from little to extreme in the eye area, radiating around the head, or coming up from the neck
  • Intense burning and redness with facial swelling or soreness across the top of the head
  • Sensitivity to any sound, light, or movement
  • Throbbing pain or stabbing sensations often listed as icepick pain
  • Symptoms made worse with exercise, up and down movement, and daily activities
  • Pain lasting for more than four hours and as long as three days without treatment from a medical professional
  • Interference in daily routines like work and school schedules because of symptoms for more than half of the month

Causes of Migraines

Although there are hundreds of causes of migraines ranging from hormone changes to added stress at work, many triggers are easy to group letting the doctor find answers quicker with the right tests and questions.

  • Menopause
