 Understand and Prevent Migrain

 

People who suffer from intermittent attacks of migraine know the symptoms all too well, the inconvenience of unexpected attacks, the frustration of “cures” that have not worked, and the expense of lost work and healthcare.

Understanding migraine – the different types, the symptoms, and the possible causes -gives you the knowledge to deal more effectively with your condition.


Migraine is a condition that can affect anyone at any time. Some people are more likely to experience migraine attacks than others but, if the right mix of conditions come together, almost anyone can experience a migraine. It is a condition that affects not just you and your quality of life but your family and friends and colleagues as well. How often have you had to miss a family party, not been able to make an important meeting, had to go to bed early or lost the first three days of your holiday just because of your migraine? By its very nature, migraine is unpredictable. We all like to feel in control of our lives but migraine can strike at any time and often at the most inopportune time. The more you, as an individual, understand about your migraine and how it affects you, the greater chance you have of being able to control your migraine. Or at least feel in control of it some of the time if not all of the time.

What do the doctor and specialist nurse need to know and why?

The first step in tackling your headache is making the diagnosis. The challenge is in trying to make the symptoms ‘fit the boxes’ as closely as possible - and, if they don’t fit, deciding which box comes closest.

Acute treatment

There are lots of different headaches and there are lots of different ways of treating those headaches. The important thing is to find the right treatment for the right headache. If you use the wrong treatment, it is not likely to work well and will lead to a sense of frustration, and can often make the headache worse rather than better.
