A migraine is so much more than just a headache. For some sufferers, the word “headache” cannot come close to describing the intensity of the pulsing and throbbing pain that comes along with a migraine. Migraines can be heralded by certain warning signs. For example, some people see an aura, flashes of light, or blind spots, or feel tingling in an arm or a leg. It can be helpful to keep track of what triggers migraines as well as pay attention to what offers relief. Keep a migraine log book, and talk to your doctor about trying a medication that may help with the pain. Look for relief by seeking a balance between medication and lifestyle changes.
P.S. Migraines can cause tremendous pain that lasts for days and can interfere with work and everyday activities.
