Migraines Q & A

What are migraines?

Migraines are a painful type of headache that causes a pulsing or throbbing pain, usually on one side of your head. Migraine pain can be severe enough to cause nausea, fatigue, and increased sensitivity to light and sound. Many people can only cope with migraines by lying still in a dark, quiet room for several hours or days.

The root cause of migraine headaches isn’t well understood, but certain triggers in your environment can increase your risk for migraine pain. 

Common migraine triggers include:

  • Stress
  • Caffeine
  • Strong smells
  • Weather changes
  • Hormone changes
  • Use of certain medications

Some people develop migraines when they consume certain foods, including chocolate, processed meats, and yeast products. You may be prone to recurrent migraines if you have a family history of the condition.

When should I seek treatment for migraines?

You should seek treatment if you have head pain and other symptoms of migraines that interfere with your quality of life. These symptoms may include:

  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Mood changes
  • Blurred vision

The team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness recommends scheduling a diagnostic evaluation for migraines that don’t get better with over-the-counter medications. You should also request a consultation if you have chronic migraines that occur several times a month.

The providers work closely with you to rule out underlying health issues that may be causing your headache pain. They also customize a treatment plan for your specific needs.

How are migraines treated?

While there are several migraine medications you can buy off the shelf, they may not be strong enough to treat migraine pain.

The team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness can prescribe stronger medications to address the throbbing pain and other symptoms of a migraine. Prescription medications are also effective at preventing the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.

Your provider can work with you on strategies to avoid your migraine triggers. This may include eliminating certain foods from your diet and learning how to better manage your stress.
