What Is a Migraine?

If you’re here on this page, you’ve probably been dealing with migraines and are eager to find a solution. The good news is that you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 10% of us experience migraines at some point in our lives.

So, what is a migraine exactly? While many people equate migraines with headaches, the two are vastly different things. A headache is one of many symptoms of a migraine. Further, the headaches associated with migraines are described by sufferers as debilitating.

Migraines have a long list of symptoms, including:

  • Severe, throbbing headache
  • Worsening pain with movement or activity
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Mood changes
  • Uncontrolled jerking motions
  • Visual disturbances

While having a headache is uncomfortable, most people can still function to a degree. Migraines, on the other hand, are complete life disruptors and can interfere with a routine for up to three days.

Common Causes of Migraines

While headache pain is often caused by food, alcohol, stress, or dehydration, the causes of migraines are often complex and may be harder to isolate.

Stress and food additives are common triggers of migraines, and these other triggers may be problematic for patients:

  • Increased stress levels
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Low blood sugar
  • Alcohol and caffeine
  • Hormonal changes
  • Weather
  • Medication
  • Environmental factors (light and noise)

Understanding what triggers your migraines can go a long way toward controlling them when they appear and avoiding a chronic migraine. If you are a regular migraine sufferer, meaning you’ve had eight or more migraines per month for the past three months, you have chronic migraine.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Symptoms of a Headache?

When you get headache pain, you may experience a range of symptoms. The primary head pain may feel dull and achy or sharp and intense. The pain may occur on one side of your head or the other, or it may manifest at the back of your head. This head pain may be accompanied by other symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, sinus pressure, or a feeling of tightness around the head.

With chronic migraine headaches, other head pain symptoms develop, including things like:

  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Pounding or throbbing pain on one side of the head
  • Hot and cold sensations
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Visual disturbances like flashing dots, wavy lines, or blind spots (auras)

Some migraine sufferers also experience a pre-migraine stage, called prodrome, where they may have food cravings, concentration issues, and irritability, among other symptoms.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

Headaches and migraines may occur on their own, called primary headaches, or they may be a side effect of another condition. These are called secondary headaches.

Headaches may occur with an infection, such as a sinus or ear infection, or with conditions like glaucoma and meningitis. Dehydration can cause headaches, as can high blood pressure.

Chronic headaches, including migraines, can result from extreme stress and carrying tension in and around the neck. They can also be brought on by certain foods, food additives, or alcohol.

How are Headaches Treated?

Your pain management specialist at Metro Denver Pain Management (MD Pain) finds a solution that can reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches and migraines. Depending on the specifics of your case, your doctor may suggest:

  • Over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Prescription headache medications
  • Hot or cold compresses
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Occipital Nerve Blocks
  • Trigger point injections

In many situations, your doctor may take a multidisciplinary approach and combine migraine treatment approaches.
