Headache or migraine without aura?

About

A chronic condition that is far more severe than a headache.

The most common migraine condition is the migraine without aura. It accounts for about 75% of all migraines. [1]

  • Usually self-diagnosable
  • May be genetically linked
  • Adult women suffer from the condition more 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.

Symptoms

Self-diagnosable:

  • Primary symptoms are nagging pain on one or both sides in the head.
  • Nausea and vomiting in some cases
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Throbbing, pulsing or steady pain
  • Mood swings and irritability

Treatment:

There are a few treatment options that work towards relieving pain and some prevent recurrent attacks.

Self-care: Rest in a dark and quiet room to avoid worsening the symptoms. Avoid any strenuous activities.

Medication: You may 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. These triggers may include food, medicine, stress, and environmental factors.

Specialists: For other concerns, consultation with a neurologist may be required. If you are looking for a holistic treatment and wellness plan for your intractable migraine, be sure to join us at mfine!
