How To Crack Your Migraine
Here is a topic that has confirmed my past held views that people with migraine have had to indeed persevere with a lot of, not only, pain and suffering but also to live with the realities of daily life, itself – a feat easier said than achieved, needless to say.
Your whole world – home, social and work life is completely and absolutely disrupted. It is very difficult, for a normal soul, to follow a precise set of procedures as well as attempting to balance your daily life and work routines, around your health problems.
To say matters can be difficult would be to extensively minimise the problems of living a life in these circumstances. Let me explain further.
Migraine can be quite severe. A migraine headache is usually an intense, throbbing pain on one, or sometimes, both sides of the head.
Most people with a migraine headache feel the pain in the temples or behind one eye or ear, although any part of the head can be involved. Besides pain, migraine is a medical condition. Most people who suffer from migraine get headaches that people also may see as spots of flashing lights or have temporary loss of vision.
There also are differences in how these types of headaches respond to treatment with medicines. Although some over the counter drugs used to treat tension-type headaches sometimes help migraine headaches, the drugs used to treat migraine attacks do not work for tension-type headaches for most people.
You can not tell the difference between a migraine and a tension-type headache by how often they occur. Both can occur at irregular intervals. In fact in very rare cases, both can occur daily or almost daily. However most people still confuse a sinus headache with a migraine headache because the pain and pressure in the sinuses, nasal congestion, and watery eyes often occur with migraine. To find out which it is, just see if it is moderate-to-severe headache and how your reaction is to sensitivity to light – as this cam determine which is which.
All these tensions and stresses can and do trigger off nerve related pains in different parts of your body. Such as pains in the arms and legs or back of your neck. Your behaviour, your complete moods and how you react to other people can also have a deteriorating and also devastating effect on your personal well being. Needless to say migraine and how it is triggered is not fully understood, as yet and living with it’s consequential effects, can be, quite unbearable – as I know from personal experience with a close friend. If you are, of course in any doubt about any of these conditions the best course of action that you should take is to consult your personal doctor as soon as possible. This is such a personal condition that it is very difficult for others to relate to but with some knowledge you can minimise its effects on yourself. Until the next time – keep your spirits up and be positive.
