What is a Migraine?

A migraine is described as a moderate to severe headache often associated with throbbing pain affecting one side of the head. Symptoms of migraine may also include nausea, vomiting and feeling sensitive to light or sound.

Migraine is a common health condition that usually begins in early adulthood. It affects 1 in 5 women and 1 in every 15 men.

What are the causes of Migraines?

Although the exact cause of migraines remains unknown, research indicates genetics may play a role. People who suffer from migraine attacks have noticed certain triggers, which include: eating certain foods, tiredness, menstrual cycle and stress.

How to treat a Migraine?

There are a number of treatments available to help ease the symptoms of migraines, however there is no cure yet.
Depending on the type and severity of the migraine, many people find over-the counter analgesics such as aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen to be effective in reducing symptoms, especially when taken at the first signs of a migraine attack.
It is advised to take a painkiller as soon as the onset of migraine occurs, as this gives enough time for the treatment to absorb into your bloodstream and helps ease your symptoms sooner.

Triptans, such as sumatriptan and rizatriptan are an alternative treatment for people who did not get relief from ordinary painkillers such as aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen. Common side-effects of triptans include tingling or warm sensations and feeling of heaviness in the face, chest or limbs. The full list of side-effects can be found in the patient information leaflet.

Anti-sickness medicines, such as Buccastem can successfully treat migraine in people who experience feeling or being sick. This medicine can be prescribed alongside other painkillers and triptans.

Acupuncture is a good option for people who do not wish to take painkillers or if medicine is unsuitable for them. Studies show 10 sessions of acupuncture, over a 5-8 week period has proven beneficial in reducing migraine frequency and severity.

If the above measures have not effectively controlled your migraines, it's worth booking an appointment with your GP. Your doctor may refer you to a specialist for further investigation and treatment. Your specialist may suggest treatments, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This electric device works by delivering magnetic pulses through your head. Although the evidence of effectiveness is not strong, some evidence have shown that TMS can reduce migraine severity, particularly when used at the start of a migraine.


How to prevent Migraines?

It is worth noting down your triggers in a diary, this will give you a better understanding of what's causing your migraines. Your migraine triggers could be certain foods or stress, a headache diary will help you identify patterns.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle also helps prevent migraines. This includes eating healthy diet, avoid skipping meals, regular exercise and adequate sleep. It is important to stay well hydrated and limit your intake of alcohol and caffeine.
If your migraines are more frequent or severe, it is worth booking an appointment with your GP. Your doctor may prescribe you medicines such as propranolol or topiramate which can be taken to prevent migraines.
