Most people use the term “migraine” every time they experience some form of headache. However, migraine is a certain type of headache caused by specific physiologic changes in the brain which causes severe head pain that is often accompanied by sensitivity to light, sound, or even smells.
The common symptoms of migraine include the following:
- Ocular Pain or Eye Pain
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Severe, “throbbing” or “pounding” pain, usually on one side of the head
- Sensitivity to light, sound, and smell
- Experiencing warning symptoms prior to migraine attacks such as flashing lights, blind spot, numbness or weakness on one side of the body
The exact cause of migraine headaches is still unknown and there is no specific cure. Traditional medicine offers many option but patients prefer compounded medication for treatment alternatives. Compounded medication, oftentimes, are more cost-effective, efficient and have lower risk of side effects. If hormonal imbalance is a potential cause of migraines, the proper therapy can be addressed with compounding medication.
Medical treatment for migraines usually includes over-the-counter medications, naproxen sodium or prescription medications. However, not everyone can take these medications and there are usually specific limitations regarding how often these medications can be taken. Choosing a specific medication depends on a variety of factors such as age, sex, blood pressure and other pre-existing medical conditions.
Non-medication options range from avoidance of dietary triggers to exercises such as yoga.
