Migraines

What is a migraine?

A migraine isn’t just a really bad headache. It’s a collection of incapacitating neurological symptoms, including:

  • A severe, pulsing headache on one side of your head
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smells
  • Visual disturbances including halos, auras, or blind spots in your vision
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Numbness or tingling in your extremities

Migraines can last for 4-72 hours and often follow a recognizable pattern. In fact, you may have a warning symptom before a migraine attack.

What causes migraines?

The precise cause of migraines isn’t fully understood. However, medical researchers have identified several factors that trigger or contribute to migraines, including:

  • Tension in your neck or jaw
  • Temporomandibular joint problems
  • Hormonal changes
  • Insufficient sleep
  • Irregular eating habits
  • Certain foods, including chocolate, cheese, and citrus fruits
  • Emotional factors such as stress, depression, anxiety, or shock
  • Environmental triggers such as flickering or bright lights or secondhand smoke

Some research indicates that irregular brain activity or irritation of your trigeminal nerve can trigger migraines.

When should I talk to a doctor about migraines?

While 12% of Americans suffer from migraines, more than half are neither diagnosed nor seek professional treatment. If you have migraines, especially if they prevent you from going to work or school or otherwise disrupt your life, you should make an appointment at Renewed Wellness for assessment and treatment.
