There are misconceptions about migraine that need to be straightened out. As an example, we often think that migraines are simply one-sided headaches. Having this kind of assumption could delay our diagnosis for many years. In reality, migraine could happen on both sides of our head, especially if it is accompanied by blurred vision, speech disturbances and other symptoms. There are a set of symptoms that indicate symptoms of migraine, such as crying jags, mood swings, physical discomfort and depression. It is also wrong to assume that migraine happens for a relatively short period of time. Migraine-related pain could last for a number of days and post-migraine recovery phase could also leave us feeling somewhat unbalanced and uncomfortable. It is often thought that everyone gets migraine sometimes. In reality, this is not true. Migraine has more severe implications that normal headache. When people have migraine, it feels like a pickaxe that is smashed through the side of our skin and it feels like that our eyes are being burned by molten iron. People who have migraine can be incapacitated by their condition and it’s hardly a daily occurrence that we see at home, work and other areas. People often think that modern medication is able to effectively ease migraine condition, but that’s not the case. Magnesium, feverfew and coenzyme Q10 may help to alleviate some of the symptoms, but there’s no guarantee that our problems can be resolved quickly.
OTC painkillers may help, but they don’t deal with the root causes of migraine. Serotonin receptor agonist drugs, ergots, triptans and anti emetics should be more effective against migraine. If your condition is somewhat severe, you may consult the doctor to find out whether you can get some prescribed drugs, such as anti convulsants, anti depressants and beta blockers. We should be aware that these medications don’t always work the same way with each person and in some people, some drugs may not work at all. It may take months or years to identify the real cause of your migraine. It is important that the doctor is capable to provide us with an accurate diagnosis and we need to have proper treatment once diagnosed. Poor diagnosis and care of migraine could cause significant loses among many people. All in all, the treatment of migraine can be considered as a huge business. It is important that symptoms can be properly understood, so we can work our way toward the best solutions. If we continue to have migraine, we will suffer from the lost of productivity. A complete awareness should be an important step toward the most appropriate solution for your condition. If you discover new symptoms, try to discuss them with the doctor. Sometimes, you will be asked to see a neurologist or undergo MRI examination to better understand your problem. If there seems to be no valid reason for your condition, you shouldn’t give up. Continue to live happily and slowly remove unnecessary stressors in your live and you will feel much better.
