Everyone suffers a headache and headaches, in general, are irritating and draining. But, migraine headaches are more terrible and only a person who suffers these can understand the pain and discomfort associated with them. These headaches differ from person to person with a peculiar pain coupled with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, sound/light sensitivity, etc.
The pain and suffering of migraine headaches are severe and many people describe it in various ways. Some people may feel as if their skull is being pressed down, some have a tendency to avoid light as if someone is stabbing them, some may feel terrible pain that makes them think they have a brain failure, some feel a sensation of their head being squeezed in a helmet kind of thing, some people have temporary loss of vision. Whatever kind of experiences they have, one thing is common and that is a throbbing pain. However, all this suffering can be eliminated with proper homeopathy treatment for migraine.
Is Migraine not a regular headache?
Absolutely not! It is more than a headache and is a neurological condition causing severe pounding pain usually on one side of the head. It is characterized by multiple symptoms like vomiting, nausea, a feeling of numbness, and sensitivity to light or sound. It is found that migraine headaches can run in families and they can affect anyone and at any age with women being more prone than men.
Migraine headaches are so severe that they can affect a person for a few hours to some days and interfere with the daily routine thereby disturbing their personal & professional life to a great extent. Some people with the migraine condition experience a warning symptom before or along with the headache which is called ‘aura’. This may include seeing a flash of light; tingling on one side of the face, an arm or leg; and may even cause difficulty in speaking in some.
The most severe or acute phase of a migraine headache is the attack phase when the actual migraine pain is experienced. This may last up to anywhere between hours to days. People often describe this phase and the pain as pounding, debilitating, perforating, throbbing, and pulsating.
