Migraine

Migraine – a chronic disease of the brain, often leading patients to impaired adaptation, that is, the body’s ability to adapt to the constantly changing conditions of the external or internal environment.

Prodrome

1-2 days before the headache develops, you may feel slight changes in your well-being: increased activity, irritability, decreased mood, discomfort in the cervical spine, changes in appetite, and stool.

Aura

Most often, you will have a visual aura, but perhaps the appearance of sensitive, motor, auditory changes. Each of these symptoms begins gradually, increases over several minutes and lasts no more than 60 minutes.

Attack

As a rule, the pain is one-sided, increasing in intensity over an hour, pulsating, accompanied by increased sensitivity to light, sounds, smells, intolerance to physical exertion, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, dizziness, diarrhea.

Postdrome

It occurs at the end of a migraine headache episode. At this time, you may feel general weakness, a decrease in mood, or, conversely, euphoria.

Migraine Treatment

Regardless of the new opportunities in the treatment of headaches, the approach somehow remains complex, i.e. There is no single way to help achieve the desired result. In the case of migraine, we are not talking about its cure, we are talking about reducing the burden of headaches, significantly improving the quality of life of patients suffering from this disease, which is achieved through a comprehensive, sometimes multidisciplinary treatment.
