We have all felt a headache at some point, resulting in discomfort in our head, face, and neck. The intensity can range between mild ache to severe in some cases. Although it feels like the pain comes from your brain, that is not the case. The problem is usually caused by blood vessels and muscles surrounding your skull and brain. There are several types of headaches, with migraine being the most dreadful one.

The difference between a migraine and other headaches comes from diverse symptoms migraine brings, such as:

  • Brief loss of vision
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Visual hallucinations (appearance of flashing lights, halos, and spots)

Stress, hormonal changes, intense physical activity, specific medications, food or beverages, bright lights, and Sun are some of the migraine causes. Researchers conclude that age and genetics also play a crucial role when it comes to this medical condition.

Migraine is a medical state that can be treatable if the correct therapy is applied. Once the medical professionals detect the cause of your migraine, they can suggest few action plans that include lifestyle changes like:

  • Regular, healthy meals
  • Limited consumption of caffeine and alcohol
  • Adequate sleep
  • Stress reduction

A revolutionary method that helps with preventing migraines is FDA-approved Botox® treatment. The procedure includes injecting small amounts of Botox into the nerve fibers, inhibiting pain signals from activating in your brain.
