Migraine treatment symptoms & advice from Ashcroft Pharmacy
Migraines affect one in every five women and one in every fifteen men, and they frequently begin in early adulthood. They can last anywhere from four to 72 hours and occur once a year or once a week. A migraine with aura, migraine without aura, and migraine aura without headache are the three types of migraines that are usually identified by a doctor (silent headache).
Migraine symptoms include a severe headache on one side of the head, nausea or vomiting, increased sensitivity to light, sound, and scents, and an aura (seeing flashing lights or opaque spots).
Triggers and causes
Migraines are assumed to be the result of transitory changes in the neurotransmitters, neurons, and blood vessels in the brain, despite the lack of a specific explanation. Around half of those with the illness have a close relative who also has it, implying that genes may play a role.
One can be triggered by a variety of factors. Physical and mental stress, weariness, missing a meal, drinking coffee or alcohol, and meals containing tyramine are some of the things that might cause this (cured meats, some cheeses and yeast extracts). Also, bright lights, loud noises, and temperature fluctuations.
Treatments to prevent migraines are available, but they must be recommended by your doctor. Identifying and avoiding migraine triggers is an effective approach to prevent headaches.
Once a migraine has started, we can prescribe migraine medicines such as Sumatriptan or Rizatriptan. These treatments, when combined with an anti-sickness medicine and an over-the-counter pain reliever, can help you feel better in a matter of hours.
