Migraine Headache Treatment
Migraine headaches can be downright debilitating, and people who experience chronic severe headaches may find it helpful to seek out a long-term pain management plan. At Pain Care, we offer help for people in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia, area who struggle with migraine headaches and their many intense symptoms.
Migraine headaches can be related to any number of triggers, including experiencing stress, seeing bright or strobing lights, eating specific foods, and even hearing certain sounds. Some people experience visual auras – a symptom that involves seeing spots or sparkling lines, or a temporary, partial loss of vision – typically about an hour before the onset of the headache itself. In addition to pain, migraines often have other symptoms, such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sensitivity to light
For people who experience less frequent migraine headaches, they may be disruptive to activities, but they can often be effectively managed by taking over-the-counter migraine medication and resting in a darkened room. However, for people with regular migraines, these options may be less-than satisfactory. That’s where Pain Care’s experienced physicians come into the picture. Their extensive knowledge of chronic pain conditions can be useful when it comes to effective, personalized management of migraine pain for people in the Metro Atlanta area. Keeping in mind a patient’s triggers and the intensity of their symptoms, our physicians can offer practical advice for avoiding migraines when possible, write prescriptions for medications, and otherwise help each patient.
