What Is Migraine?

A migraine is a severe headache felt on one side of the head. It may last a few hours or days, along with nausea and vomiting. One shows irritability and light sensitivity as well. Usually, migraine attacks keep repeating after a period of rest or remission.

What Causes Migraines?

Migraines result from abnormal brain functions involving nerves, blood vessels, and certain chemicals produced in the brain. A migraine attack is often triggered by several outside influences like stress, lack of sleep, food habits, drinks like alcohol and coffee, certain medications, and more.

How Do I Know if I Have Migraine?

A typical migraine attack strikes with a throbbing or pulsing pain on one side of the head. You may also have nausea and vomiting apart from the pain. In addition, one may stay extremely sensitive to lights, sounds, and smells. Most people get an aura before the migraine attack, which is a set of warning symptoms like visual disturbances and more. A typical migraine attack lasts for a while and recurs periodically.

Can Migraine Be Cured?

A migraine disorder can be effectively treated under expert care. Your doctor may prescribe drugs to prevent the migraine attacks from setting in and also to stop the headache episode from turning severe. Moreover, the doctor will help you identify the potential triggers to eliminate them for better results.

Can I Get Prescription Medication on iCliniq First for Migraine?

You can avail certain prescription drug refills for migraine via iCliniq First. However, please note that we only prescribe specific drugs, and only for eligible patients. For more information on available drug options or your eligibility for them, consult a doctor at iCliniq First.

Does Over-The-Counter Medication Work for Migraine?

Over-the-counter medications like pain relievers may help relieve migraine symptoms to some extent. One may also take over-the-counter medicines for vomiting, stomach upset, and other symptoms. But over time, these may cause severe side effects and health hazards. In addition, one may be prone to medication-overuse headaches too. Hence it is always recommended to take prescription medications under the expert care of a healthcare provider.

What Migraine Treatment Will Work for Me?

To effectively cure migraine, the doctor may prescribe abortive and preventive medicines. When these are taken under expert guidance, you can gradually reduce migraine episodes' frequency. Also, one can prevent the headache from turning unbearably severe if taken right before a migraine attack. Along with that, you may be advised to keep track of your triggers and try to avoid them with lifestyle modifications.

What Does a Migraine Feel Like?

A migraine is usually felt as an intense pounding type of headache beginning somewhere on the side of the head, around the eyes, or forehead. The pain gradually grows worse and more severe with time. Any loud noises, bright lights, and clutter in the vicinity may worsen the pain. And one may be nauseated and vomit a lot too. Most migraine attacks start with an aura before the attack, which involves strange sensations and visual disturbances. The pain lasts a few hours to days, followed by a period of remission.

How Long Can a Migraine Last?

A typical migraine attack starts with a strange feeling of aura, gradually progressing to headache symptoms, and worsens to an intense and severe type of pain along with nausea, vomiting, and photosensitivity. It ends with a period of exhaustion, sleepiness, and mental confusion from which you gradually recover over time. The whole episode may last for about four hours to a few days varying from person to person. It is followed by a period of remission, and the migraine attack may recur. If left untreated, the pain may last for weeks to months with short periods of remissions in between.

Migraine vs Other Headaches. What Are the Differences?

A migraine attack is different from other types of headaches in many ways. A migraine headache is a high-level pain that may not respond to usual pain medications. Most migraine attacks are confined to only one side of the head. And there are other symptoms like vomiting, stomach upset, dizziness, and irritability. It is the type of pain that keeps you away from work. In contrast, other headaches can be from stress, sinus infections, and more. And they occur on both sides of the head.
