What is a migraine?

  • Migraine is a neurological condition that can cause multiple symptoms. It’s frequently characterized by intense, debilitating headaches.
  • Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound.
  • Migraines often run in families and affect all ages. Migraines can begin in childhood or may not occur until early adulthood. Women are more likely than men to have migraines.

Migraine symptoms

  • The prodrome stage (one to two days before the headache itself): food cravings, depression, fatigue or low energy, frequent yawning, hyperactivity, irritability, neck stiffness.
  • In migraine with aura: during an aura, you may have problems with your vision, sensation, movement, and speech. 
  • The attack phase. This is the most acute or severe of the phases when the actual migraine pain occurs: sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, dizziness or feeling faint, pain on one side of your head, pulsing and throbbing head pain, vomiting. 
  • The postdrome phase. During this phase, there are usually changes in mood and feelings. A mild, dull headache may persist.

Migraine treatment

Migraines can’t be cured, but your doctor can help you manage them so you get them less often and treat symptoms when they occur.

A treatment plan may include a combination of self-care migraine remedies, lifestyle adjustments, including stress management and avoiding migraine triggers, OTC pain or migraine medications, prescription migraine medications, prescription medications to help with nausea or vomiting, hormone therapy if migraines seem to occur in relation to your menstrual cycle, counseling and alternative care, which may include biofeedback, meditation, acupressure, or acupuncture.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
