Migraine Headaches

Today, thanks to new medical research, doctors have a better understanding of migraines. They know that a migraine is more than just a “bad headache.” It has a unique set of biological causes and physical symptoms. These symptoms include at least two of the following: pain on one side of the head, throbbing pain, pain that’s moderate to severe, pain that’s aggravated by activity. Migraine symptoms also include one of the following: sensitivity to light and/or sound, or nausea with or without vomiting. Doctors also have better insight into how much a migraine can affect you and everyone around you. Today doctors can diagnose migraines better; and they can provide treatment programs that are surprisingly effective.
