Migraine Headaches

Migraine Headaches

   Do you have migraines?

   Do you want to do something about them?

   First off you have to know what they are, and be sure that’s what kind of headaches you’re having.

   Here’s the deal. Migraines are extremely painful, recurring headaches that are sometimes accompanied by other symptoms, such as visual disturbances, for example, seeing an aura or nausea.

   There are 2 types of migraine -- migraine with aura, formerly called common migraines, and migraine without aura, formerly called classic migraines.

   If you have a migraine with an aura, you may see things, such as stars, or zigzag lines, or have a temporary blind spot about 30 minutes before the headache starts.

   Even if you don't experience an aura, you may have other warning signs in the period before the headaches starts, such as a craving for sweets, thirst, sleepiness, or depression.

   Although there is no cure for migraines, you can manage the condition by reducing the frequency of attacks and reducing pain once an attack starts by making sure that your neck and central nervous system are checked at this office. If you know anyone that has migraines and needs help, please do not hesitate to have them call our office. (734) 677-0111. Thank you.

Dr. Hesselberg
