HEADACHES AND MIGRAINES
Headaches and Migraines
A Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent, severe headaches which affect more than 10% of people worldwide. The underlying cause of migraines is unknown but they are believed to be related to a combination of environmental and genetic factors.
They run in families in about two-thirds of cases and rarely occur due to a single genetic defect. Depending on the individual, the severity of the pain, duration of the headache, and frequency of attacks are variable.
Usually, these headaches are unilateral (on one side of the head), throbbing, and moderate to severe in intensity. Migraines are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light- and sound sensitivity, visual disturbances, fatigue and irritability.
Migraines may be induced by triggers, such as stress, hunger, fatigue or hormonal fluctuations. The strength and significance of these relationships are uncertain. A trigger may occur up to 24 hours prior to the onset of symptoms. Muscle relaxing injectable® has been found to successfully treat chronic migraines.
