I have actually been around numerous people that use the word Migraine, when they talk about having a headeache. Do these individuals in fact have migraines? Exactly what is a migraine, and are there ways to ease them? These are a few of the questions I will respond to.
The word “migraine” comes from the Greek word “hemikranion” which equates to “discomfort affectin one side of the head”. A Migraine is a headache in a form, that is typically extremely strong and can practically be disabling, when intense. Unlike commong headache’s which everybody is susceptible to, migraines are a neurologic disease, and the most typical type of vascular headache.
Although everyone individual impacted by migraines will identify the signs in a different way, the book says: severe discomfort on several sides of the head, an indigestion, and sometimes disrupted vision. The difference between a headache and migraine is summarized in the word “Aura”, which refers to the migraine includes that are non-headache like. Migraines have actually existed throughout history, and it is understood that family history and genetic factors are necessary in the likelyhood of migraines.
Numerous physicians deal with migraines, and will have numerous recommended treatment for migraines. It is in my experience that over the counter pain killers, and other drugs have their part in decreasing the discomfort migraines cause, but are never actually able to cure them. In addition to these drugs come several hostile side-effects, which are not satisfying to say the least. Obviously these adverse effects and effectiveness of the drugs are different on an invidual basis. The treatment that I have actually seen to be the most efficient is making use of Chinese medication, in specific accupuncture. Accupuncture is a natural medicine because you are not injecting any drugs or anything inside of your body. You are merely just dealing with what is currently there. Speak with your physician, and others that have actually experienced migraines, to learn what steps may be best for you.
