Most people have
heard of migraine headaches, but most of them don't realize that
there are many different types of migraines, each with its own unique
symptoms.We'll examine these here.
migraine is also called periodic syndrome. It occurs
usually in children, and usually ones with a prior family history
of migraine attacks.Abdominal migraines are characterized by bouts
of pain in the abdomen lasting for around two hours. Other
symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, flushing and pallor. Standard
migraine medications usually work for abdominal migraines.
basilar migraine is one affecting the circulation in the
back of the neck or brain. This usually occurs in young women
and can cause dizziness, loss of balance, double vision, confusion,
fainting, slurred speech and disorientation. Some people will
even lose consciousness during an acute headache.Often people are
mistakenly believed to be suffering from some other condition.
migraine is a type which is accompanied by one or more
neurologic deficits, for instance, paralysis. It sometimes
features an aura that lasts for hours or days, as opposed to the
half hour or hour which is the usual. There are a few different
forms of complicated migraine headaches.One is the ophthalmoplegic
migraine, in which the patient develops some paralysis of the nerves
required for eye movement. In a retinal migraine, the visual
symptoms occur from the person's retina rather than from the part
of the brain used for vision. Another form of complicated
migraine is the hemiplegic migraine, which is often inherited and
is linked to one of a few different chromosomes.
Migraine Syndrome refers to patience who experience more
than 10 migraine attacks a month.These are typically long-lasting
and not associated with typical cluster headache symptoms. Studies
have shown that cyclic migraine syndrome can be helped by lithium
carbonate, as long as the patient's medication level and thyroid
functioning are both monitored.
migraine is a rare type considered to be a severe variety. During an attack, the sufferer might experience temporary
motor paralysis and some sensory disturbances on a single side of
his or her body.These symptoms precede the headache itself. The
symptoms will fade as the headache appears.
headaches refer to attacks experienced in the early hours
of the morning, usually around 4:00 a.m. The person is often
awakened by the pain. According to recent studies, these attacks
are linked with changes in the person's adrenaline and similar substances. As the levels reach their peak, the headache is experienced.
migraine refers to a migraine in which the person experiences
visual hints of an oncoming attack, usually the "aura"
which produces flashing lights or spots or something related.
migraines are considered rare forms of migraine. In
this variety, the pain surrounds the person's eyeball and can last
as long s several months. It's caused by a weakness of muscles
which surround the eye. A person should get a doctor to confirm
the diagnosis, as similar symptoms might also be produced by a pressure
on the nerves directly behind the eye.
migraines are attacks that persist for over 72 hours. One
of the factors that might prolong a migraine attack is a sterile
an inflammatory response to the migraine, which sometimes develops
around the walls surrounding the affected blood vessels.
Only a doctor
is competent to determine which form of migraine--if any--you have,
so if you suspect you suffer from one of these, make an appointment
to see him.
