More than just a severe headache, a migraine is a neurological condition that can trigger a host of incapacitating symptoms. People with migraines often experience nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound.
Migraines can strike at any time and last for hours or even days. Often, the pain is so intense that it interferes with work and daily activities.
If you suffer from migraines, the team at LiveWell Med Solutions can help. Using a concierge medicine model, they’re available to provide personalized care whenever you need them.
Migraines occur in four different phases, but not everyone who has migraines experiences every phase.
The prodrome can occur 1-2 days before a migraine and may include subtle changes like constipation, neck stiffness, and increased urination.
An aura includes temporary nervous system symptoms that may occur before or during migraines. Symptoms may include vision loss or visual disturbances like seeing flashes of light, difficulty speaking, and pins and needles sensations.
A migraine attack involves intense, pounding pain that usually occurs on one side of your head. You may also experience nausea and vomiting and increased sensitivity to light, sound, and possibly smell and touch.
After the migraine headache, you may feel tired, weak, and confused for up to a day.
Migraines affect about 12% of Americans, and women are about three times more likely to get them than men.
Anyone can get a migraine, but you may be at increased risk if your family members get migraines or if you have other medical conditions like depression, anxiety, or sleep disorders.
Standard migraine treatments include medications to prevent migraines and reduce the severity of your symptoms. If your migraines are due to a hormonal imbalance, hormone replacement therapy may help.
The team at LiveWell Med Solutions takes a holistic, integrative approach to treating migraines. They specialize in IV vitamin therapy and nutrition counseling, both of which can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines. Studies show that high doses of nutraceuticals like vitamin B-2, also known as riboflavin, may help prevent migraines and make them less painful.
