What is the Difference Between Cluster Headaches and Migraines?

Determining the appropriate headache treatment for a patient is reliant, in part, on accurate identification of the headache type. Unfortunately, headaches frequently fall prey to misdiagnosis. According to Understanding Migraines, proper treatment is particularly evasive for migraineurs. Studies have repeatedly shown that misdiagnosis occurs regularly with migraine. Plus, statistics suggest that more than 50% of those with migraine never get a diagnosis or professional medical treatment.

Food Cures for Migraine Headaches

Migraineurs are always looking for ways to prevent the frequency of attacks and reduce headache intensity. One tactic that can be extraordinarily helpful is a migraine prevention diet. Numerous foods can trigger migraines – including alcoholic beverages, caffeine, chocolate, and aged cheeses.

The Management of the Chronic Migraine Headache

Of the various types of headaches, chronic migraine is perhaps the most difficult to manage and treat. According to the International Headache Society, a chronic headache condition is experienced when an individual suffers headaches at least every other day, on average, for a span of 90 days. Chronic migraine is at fault when at least 60% of the headaches are migraine attacks (as opposed to tension headaches, sinus headaches, rebound headaches, etc.).

What is the Pterygopalatine ganglion, and How do Blocks Work to stop migraine pain (SPG Nerve Block)?

When pain management physicians and other specialists target pain, a nerve block is sometimes used. As its name suggests, nerve blocking prevents transmission of pain messages within the nervous system so that pain is minimized or not experienced at all. When treating headaches and migraines, scientific research suggests that a specific ganglion (nerve bundle) within the face is an ideal target for optimal pain alleviation.

Many people suffering health conditions know the pain of the medical disorder is only one source of frustration.

Migraines & Weight

A study published in September in the scientific journal Neurology suggested that there is a stronger connection between migraines and obesity than had previously been established. Earlier research indicated that individuals who are obese are at higher risk for regular, chronic migraines. This study aimed to determine that the same was true for migraines that occur on a more irregular basis.

Migraines & Allergies

Those who suffer from migraines, called migraineurs, each have their own individual "triggers" that tend to precede an attack. Chocolate, caffeine, and red wine are common food triggers. Other factors can come into play as well. One example is seasonal allergies, as expressed by a study of the disorder published last month.

Suicide Rates and Migraine

Migraine headaches are, as we all know and as sufferers can personally attest, excruciatingly painful. Chronic pain can be incredibly frustrating, especially when it's difficult to determine viable treatments. That frustration, over time, can lead to despondency and despair. In the end, sadly, suicide may be the final decision of the migraine sufferer.

What is the Migraine Aura

Categories // Headaches, Migraines

What is the Migraine Aura

Everyone who suffers from migraines has a lot in common. First, the pain can at times be almost unbearable. Second, sets of triggers make attacks more likely to occur (though these vary from person to person). Third, symptoms such as light sensitivity and sound sensitivity make the experience more complex than with a typical headache.

Migraines and Light Sensitivity

Categories // Migraines

Migraines and Light Sensitivity

Migraine headaches are more complex than most typical headaches are, in three ways. For one thing, rather than just involving constriction (narrowing) of the blood vessels, dilation (widening) also occurs. For another, an aura can be involved – an anomaly in the sensory part of the brain such as seeing specks or lines that aren't there. Finally, additional symptoms beyond head pain are often present.
