Learn More About What We Do
Migraines are often misunderstood, and can cause much more severe pain than a typical headache. They cause severe throbbing or pulsing pain, usually on one side of the head. Nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound often accompany migraines.
Migraine pain is disabling and often lasts for hours or even days.
What are the symptoms of a migraine?
Migraines frequently begin somewhere between childhood and early adulthood.
Some patients experience “warning symptoms” before a migraine begins.This includes blind spots, flashes of light or tingling on one side of the leg, arm or face. Some patients even experience symptoms such as food cravings, increased thirst and urination, constipation and neck stiffness one to two days before a migraine attacks.
What causes my migraines?
The reason for migraines can be vastly different from patient to patient. For some, a medication or food may be the cause. For others, it can be environment causes such as weather changes or sensory stimuli.
Women are also more susceptible to migraines due to hormonal causes.
Should I see an MMG Pain Management Specialist for my migraines?
Migraines often go untreated and are underdiagnosed. If you regularly experience migraine symptoms, try to keep a record of when they occur and possible causes. Then, make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor.
How will my MMG Provider treat my migraines?
Your doctor may recommend medications to help prevent your migraines and decrease their intensity. Finding migraine relief is often a process, not a one-time fix. Your doctor will work with you to help discover the right medication, self-help remedies and lifestyle changes to seek relief.
