Is your migraine without aura?
A chronic condition that is far more severe than a headache.
Migraine without aura is the most common type of a migraine headache. They account for about 75% of all migraines.
- Usually self-diagnosable
- May be genetically linked
- More common in adult women than adult men
- While chronic and painful, it is not life-threatening
Also known as an intractable migraine, this condition can be extremely painful and debilitating. This type of migraine does not have the common warning signs such as dizziness, changes in vision and weakness like in other migraines.
Self-diagnosable: Primary symptoms are a pain on both or one side of the head
Nausea accompanied with or without vomiting
Sensitivity to light and sound
Throbbing, pulsing or steady pain
Mood swings and irritability
Treatment options work to relieve pain while and also prevent recurrent attacks.
Self-care: Rest in a dark and quiet room to avoid worsening the symptoms. Avoid any strenuous activities.
Medication: You may also be prescribed a migraine pain reliever by your doctor.
Identify your triggers: The onset of migraines can be triggered by different things for different people. They may include food, medicine, stress, and environmental triggers.
