Have you ever felt the sudden onset of a throbbing headache right when you are in the middle of something important, or something fun?
Does it feel like somebody is drilling holes into your skull and face?
Does it quickly escalate into a full-blown sickness?
If yes, then you probably suffer from migraines.
Defining Migraines Medically
Before medical science was accessible to all, migraines used to be considered not so dangerous as a problem. As research came into the picture, it has since proved that Migraines are a neurological disorder, which could have severe consequences if left treated. Migraines are severe, recurring, and painful headaches. They can be preceded or accompanied by sensory warning signs and other symptoms.
So, understanding the basics of Migraines, it’s important to know that they can’t be left untreated. And the Migraine Awareness week is primarily designed to make people understand that it’s better to treat the problem that ignores it and cause possible future issues.
Some facts about Migraines
- People with migraines well know what triggers the problem in them.
- Many patients even get a warning symptom before the start of a migraine headache.
- Many people with a migraine can prevent a full-blown attack by recognising and acting upon the warning signs.
- Over-the-counter (OTC) medications can eliminate or reduce pain, and specific medications can help some people with a migraine.
- People who have severe attacks can take preventive medicines.
What Triggers Migraines?
The original cause of migraines is yet to be found, but many suspect irregulars or abnormal brain activity. These tend to affect the nerves and hamper the way they communicate. They are also known to affect the chemicals and blood vessels in the brain.
Some of the triggers for migraines include –
- Emotional triggers
- Hormonal changes
- Physical causes
- Diet triggers
- Environmental triggers (smells, loud noises)
Migraine treatments, on the other hand, are mostly balanced with the use of medications and some therapy. These include medications, enough sleep, hydration, diet, exercises, reducing stress etc.
The Need For Migraine Awareness Week
Every year, from 2nd till 8th September the days are dedicated to building and spreading awareness on migraines. Hence this period is mainly come to know as Migraine awareness week. But first, let us understand a little bit about headaches.
It’s essential to understand that skipping the idea of showing the frequent headaches you might be experiencing to a doctor would be a bad idea. Often is the case that people who suffer these persistent headaches with great regularity ignore the symptoms and continue taking their medications to probably suppress the pain for the time being until the whole thing blows up again.
So, if you have frequent headaches, please consult a doctor and make sure that you get timely medical attention.
