What are Migraines?

Migraines are a type of severe headache that affect about 12% of people in the United States. Migraines are often a recurring problem and are associated with throbbing or pulsing pain.

Migraine symptoms vary from one person to the next, but may include:

  • Seeing an aura or other visual disturbances
  • Pulsing or throbbing pain
  • Discomfort on one or both sides of your head
  • Light or sound sensitivity
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Debilitating pain
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion or difficulty concentrating

What Causes Migraines?

  • Genetics
  • Hormone changes
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Bright lights or loud sounds
  • Certain medicines
  • Caffeine
  • Skipping meals or dehydration
  • Using tobacco
  • Lack of sleep
  • Alcohol
  • Eating certain foods

Migraine Treatments

Your individualized migraine treatment plan might include making lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, eliminating certain foods, getting more sleep, and avoiding alcohol, smoking, and caffeine. Your doctor may recommend that you take non-opioid medicine to help manage migraines or receive Botox® or occipital nerve block injections. Several new abortive medications are now available by prescription with fewer side effects than traditional migraine medications. Stress-relieving therapies, regular exercise, and drinking lots of fluids can also help. Also addressing any existing neck pain may reduce or eliminate migraines.

Acupuncture, dietary supplements, and cognitive behavioral therapy may prevent or reduce the severity of migraines.
