What Does a Migraine Headache Feel LikeFebruary 16, 2018 Posted by: Dr. Manoj 670 views
Imagine being inside a movie theatre. The plot is interesting, the acting is good and you have good company. But, there is something preventing you from enjoying it. What could it possibly be?
A pounding headache.
You were fine when you got into the theatre, but suddenly, the noises around you amplified, and it feels like somebody is using a drilling machine on your skull.
Do you think this description is exaggerated?
Any person with migraine headaches understands that this is how it feels like.
So let’s know what exactly migraine is, and how to know if you have migraine headache symptoms.
What is migraine?
Migraine is a disorder which is usually characterised by repeated headaches and which begins with moderate pain and scales up to being severe. While the exact cause for migraines is still under research, it is still obvious that migraine headaches are caused due to something that goes wrong in the brain. This means, migraines fall under a category of problems with the nervous system. In other words, it is a neurovascular complaint which occurs due to changes in the blood vessels of the brain.
Let’s understand how and why.
The brain has multiple functions. So, what happens inside the brain is much more complicated than what we think. If you have a sensitive nervous system you are likely to be struck by migraine headaches.
When your nervous system is sensitive, it reacts to normal stimulation with a more exaggerated response. This could be a result of:
Something that you’ve had – food and beverages
If you are sleep deprived
If you’re under tremendous stress
A change in the climate
It also depends on how hypersensitive your nervous system is, and what triggers it to be that sensitive varies from person to person. So, to define migraine as one single disease is difficult. It comes with a broad spectrum of migraine headache symptoms ranging from occasional and mild, to devitalising and being more regular. The pain starts on one side of the head and can spread to the neck and shoulders.
The most common migraine headache symptoms include:
Pulsing headache that feels like hammering the head,
Hypersensitivity to light, sound and even smell
While these are physiological migraine headache symptoms that occur, there are other migraine headache symptoms that many people experience. If you have it, you might quite relate to this.
Aura migraine headache symptoms include:
Sight disorders – Flashing light and Hallucinations
Symptoms of paralysis
So, now that you’ve got quite some information about migraine headache symptoms, it’s now important to know what best treats migraines. Well, there are a number of treatments and remedies available, and some that you can manage at home. But most of these remedies might give relief on a temporary basis. The result is, you’re going to have an attack soon again and you can’t predict when.
Homeopathy – A holistic way to approach migraine:
Since migraines are not easy to handle, why not make a better choice and opt for something that treats you more holistically? Try Homeopathy.
Initially when treatment for migraine begins, the first frequency of headaches and intensity of pain will reduce and eventually headaches stop occurring over a period of time. This happens, as unlike conventional treatment, the body tries to heal itself with the help of homeopathic medicines prescribed based on the symptoms specific to the individual.
