Migraines and other types of headaches (i.e. sinus and tension headaches) are known for inflicting pain, encouraging nausea, and increasing light sensitivity. Our doctors at Unity Spine & Joint know just how intense and uncomfortable these can be. Migraine headaches can completely alter your day and take you away from work, socializing, or simply completing everyday activities.
These types of headaches aren’t experienced the same way across every individual. The most typical symptom we hear is described as a pounding or throbbing feeling around the entire head. Other symptoms can include:
Sensitivity to light, noise, or odors
Sensations of being very warm or cold
Loss of appetitie
Nausea and/or vomiting
Seeing bright flashing dots or lights
Having blind spots
Viewing wavy or jagged lines, such as an aura
There are various factors that can contribute to headaches, such as tension and stress, sinus infections, and as a side effect of prescription drugs like birth control pills. But for migraine headaches, they simply come and go without explanation for most people.
Most headaches’ pain will subside over time, or with the help of over-the-counter drugs such as ibuprofen.
