Pain from migraines can interfere with your life, making you unable to do your job, spend time with friends, and even have the lights on. The characteristic symptoms of a migraine are a severe pain in the head area. This pain may be isolated to one side or both.
It isn’t unusual for a migraine to be accompanied by dizziness and fuzzy vision. Migraines can come on at any moment. Triggers include:
Other migraines may come on with seemingly no trigger. The pain associated with a migraine is intense, often requiring the sufferer to close off from the outside world until the migraine has passed.
When Headaches Turn into More Severe Migraines
The biggest difference between a headache and a migraine is the intensity of the pain. With a headache, you can often continue through your day whereas a migraine can spiral you into being unable to function. Severe migraines can accompany many other symptoms, including nausea and an inability to tolerate light or noise.
The pain from a migraine can be isolated to one area of the head, or it can be all over. Migraines can also cause a stiff neck or back, making the symptoms even worse. Some people are more susceptible to getting intense migraines and they do tend to run in families. For those regularly suffering from migraines, the intensity of the pain can be debilitating.
Targeting Migraine Pain at the Source
The pain from a migraine can last hours or days making it difficult to function during this time. One suspected cause for migraines is a disturbance in the flow of blood to the brain. When the top vertebrae in the spine, known as the atlas, is misaligned, this can affect blood flow to the brain.
Migraines that are brought on suddenly with seemingly no reason or are accompanied with back and neck pain are likely caused by a problem with the spine.
