Overview
A migraine is an intense, throbbing headache that
may be accompanied by nausea or dizziness. A
migraine can last from hours to days.


Causes
Much about migraines isn't understood. Many
researchers believe that a migraine can be caused
by a change in hormone levels in the brain.
Migraines can be triggered by stress, bright lights
and certain smells. They can also be caused by
medications, and by getting too little or too much
sleep. Certain foods may trigger migraines. These
include alcohol, aged cheeses, chocolate, and
foods containing aspartame or MSG (monosodium
glutamate).


Symptoms
A typical migraine results in moderate to severe
pain. This pain is often felt on only one side of the
head. The pain may interfere with a person's
activities. Symptoms may also include nausea and
sensitivity to light and sound. Some people see
sparkling flashes of light, spots, or dazzling lines
before a migraine. These are called "visual auras."


Treatment
Migraines may be treated with pain-relieving
medications and with rest in a darkened room.
People who experience migraines regularly may
also take medications such as beta blockers or other preventative medications. At NorTex, we offer advanced treatments for Migraine Headaches such as Sphenopalatine Ganglion Blocks, Supraorbital and Occipital Blocks as well as Botox injections for Chronic Migraine Headaches. Finally, in intractable cases, peripheral stimulation of the supraorbital and occipital nerves has become an accepted standard of practice.
