UNDERSTANDING CHRONIC MIGRAINES
Chronic migraines come quickly and sometimes without warning. They manifest as persistent headaches. When a migraine “attack” hits, you may experience blurred or lost vision, nausea, blinding or throbbing pain around the eyes and temples, extreme light or sound sensitivity, and nausea. Migraines aren’t a typical headache; the pain is heightened in intensity, duration, and side effects, often forcing you into an isolated, darkroom.
Migraines are classified as chronic when patients experience a headache for at least 15 days of the month and at least 8 of those headache days are migraine days. Migraines typically last from 1 hour to several days, sometimes requiring a trip to the ER to relieve symptoms and restore your health.
Even though you can try to trace triggers or environmental factors which set off your attacks, there is no cure for chronic migraines.
Botox injections have been FDA-approved as a beneficial chronic migraine treatment for individuals with chronic cases. This has proven results and has helped people who have chronic migraines lead fulfilling lives.
