What is a Migraine

We spend a lot of time talking about and hearing about migraines. How many people suffer, who suffers more, triggers, treatments, precautions, etc, etc.  But, when was the last time we really discussed what a migraine was?

An article from thenews.com does a really good job outlining what a migraine is.

A lot of people use the term "migraine" to describe any severe headache, a migraine headache is the result of specific physiologic changes that occur within the brain and lead to the characteristic pain associated symptoms of a migraine.

Migraine headaches are usually associated with sensitivity to light, sound, and smells. In addition, many patients experience nausea or vomiting. The headache of a migraine often involves only one side of the head but in some cases, patients may experience pain bilaterally or on both sides. The pain of a migraine is often described as throbbing or pounding and it may be made worse with physical exertion.

In some cases, patients with migraines experience specific warning symptoms, or an aura, prior to the onset of their headache. These warning symptoms can range from flashing lights or a blind spot in one eye to numbness or weakness involving one side of the body. The aura may last several minutes, and then resolves as the head pain begins or may last until the headache resolves.

What causes migraines? There is no known specific cause, but there may be fluctuations in certain neurotransmitters, chemicals that send messages between brain cells. These changes may predispose some people to develop migraine headaches.

What triggers migraines? There are many factors that have been identified, anything from hormone fluctuations in women to chocolate and wine.  The full article lists more in detail.

Migraines have different signs, symptoms and can occur in men, women, and children.  To learn more about migraines, click here.
