Migraine Treatment

by Greg Culver

People who suffer from the migraine headaches feel like this problem is impairing their strength and vitality. Sometimes it is too frustrating when all the migraine treatments you are using or have used fail to relieve you of the problem.

The starting symptoms of migraine headaches are generally the spots, sensitivity to light, smells, or sounds, feeling dizzy or nauseated etc. At that time most of you want to stick up in your bed in a dark room with no light and sound to disturb you. You feel dizziness to the extent that you are unable to perform at work, school and even at home.

Recent studies by MAGNUM known as National Migraine Association has reported that 36 million people in the United States alone suffer from migraine headaches. According to the diagnosis of health care providers with improved recognition of symptoms there has been sixty percent increase in migraine patients. The process of cure of migraine is very difficult as the symptoms of migraine sufferers are different in every case and therefore it is difficult to determine the exact treatment for each case.

Usually migraine headaches are often hereditary from parents to children and are considered as a neurological disease with biological causes in the body. Although the treatments for migraine headache have improved considerably with the passage of time but the available treatments are not effective for everyone suffering from this disease. The migraine treatments are divided in different types according to their method of treatment. Different treatments include preventive or prophylactic medications and alternative therapies to cure the migraine headache. There are such therapies that are considered once the migraine has ensued to ward off the symptoms. Beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, anti-depressants, and Depakote, an anti-seizure drug; are the prescribed medications used in migraine treatment. Some people use feverfew leaf, butterbur root, vitamin B12, and magnesium supplementation as the prophylactic migraine treatments. New research work is done to find the cure for the gut which is known as the origin of migraine headaches in many patients. You may use prescription medications to lessen the severity and duration of migraines by initiating cerebral vasoconstriction, such medicines are Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, Relpax, Midrin, and Migranal. But you must consider these medicines if the preventive therapy is not completely effective. A narcotic injection such as Stadol, Phenergan, or Vistril can be administered if your treatment is done by a physician. Such injections contain non-vasoconstriction agents used in the event other treatments are contraindicated.

As I told earlier that there is different treatment for every individual depending on the different symptoms of migraine headache therefore it's not sure that all these effective migraine treatments will work for every migraine patient. But you may use other alternative treatments that have been proved to be effective migraine treatments in some patients like chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture and biofeedback. If you are sensitive to certain substances or foods and alcoholic beverages then you must avoid those substances as prevention is better than cure. Always consult your doctor regularly about your improvement or problems associated with migraine headache as he or she would guide you to choose the best suitable treatment for you.
