Migraines

Warnings Signs and Auras

Migraines often start with a range of warning signs, collectively known as the prodrome phase, which can occur hours or even days before the headache itself. These symptoms can serve as a warning system that a migraine is approaching. They can vary greatly from person to person, but common warning signs include:

Remember, the presence and type of warning signs can vary greatly among individuals, and not everyone will experience these symptoms. If you experience these or any other unusual symptoms, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional to receive the appropriate care.

Treatment Options

While migraines have no definitive cure, several strategies exist to manage symptoms and improve life quality. Over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen can alleviate pain. When these aren’t sufficient, Triptans, prescription drugs that counteract brain changes during migraines, can offer relief within two hours.

Anti-emetic drugs may be prescribed for accompanying nausea or vomiting. For frequent or severe migraines, preventive medications, behavioural strategies, and lifestyle adjustments are recommended. These include regular physical activity, stress management techniques, and maintaining a consistent sleep schedule. Identifying and avoiding personal triggers can also help.

During a migraine attack, a quiet, dark room can offer relief. Emerging therapies such as neuromodulation devices and CGRP inhibitors are being developed. At London Interventional Clinic, we create tailored treatment strategies based on your migraines’ characteristics and your overall health and lifestyle, aiming to reduce migraines’ impact on your life.

FAQs

Migraine triggers vary greatly among individuals but can include hormonal changes, certain foods or drinks, stress, lack of sleep, and environmental factors like bright lights or loud noises. Identifying and avoiding these triggers can be an effective strategy in managing migraines.

While all migraines can cause pain, not all headaches are migraines. Migraines are often characterised by a severe, throbbing pain on one side of the head, and may be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Botox is a well-known cosmetic treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause them. However, it has also been shown to be effective in treating chronic migraines. Botox for migraine injections are administered through a small needle in the head and neck area. The injection delivers a small amount of botulinum toxin, which helps to relax the muscles and reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.

Studies have shown that Botox for migraines works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine from the nerve ending. This prevents the neurotransmitter from reaching the muscle and telling it to contract. By blocking these signals, Botox can relax and desensitise the scalp muscles and help to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines (2019).

Migraines are generally diagnosed based on a patient’s reported symptoms and medical history. In some cases, doctors may recommend additional tests such as brain imaging to rule out other potential causes of the symptoms.

Yes, there are several types of migraines. The two most common types are migraines without aura (previously known as common migraines) and migraines with aura (previously known as classic migraines). Other types include chronic migraines, menstrual migraines, and hemiplegic migraines, among others. Each type of migraine has its own set of symptoms, triggers, and appropriate treatment strategies.
