Many of us were quite young when we experienced our first headache. We probably don’t even remember the moment they began to develop. But it can be different with a migraine. Although a migraine may come slightly later in life (However, children and even infants can have migraines, they just don’t know how to tell you. Head banging in infants and toddlers are a cardinal sign of a migraine), and can creep up totally unexpected, displaying itself with symptoms you’ve never before known. In today’s post, we’ll share with you some common symptoms of a migraine headache, and actions you can take immediately to help reduce the intensity and duration of the oncoming pain.
Headaches aren’t pleasant, but migraines are debilitating. Many people experience warning signs of an impending migraine in the form of a loss of vision, flashing lights, tunnel visions, and zig zag lights called auras filling up their sight. The pain of the migraine usually follows. With over 30 years work of helping clients recover from migraines, we’ve come to know the visual symptoms of an oncoming migraine – and now you can too:
So what do you do when these strange sights blur your vision and fill your eyesight? First, make a mental note to visit a health practitioner and have them confirm it’s only a migraine and nothing worse. Then, you should immediately stop your work. Not only is it dangerous to drive or perform a task while these new lights are flashing about your eyes, it’s not going to help the oncoming problem reduce.
Here are some simple steps you can take to help stop or reduce the intensity of a migraine before it hits:
The first thing to do is get out of the light, be it a computer monitor, or the sun shining on a windshield or the water.
And if you are thinking ‘but why do I get migraines?’ that is a very good question to be asking. The cause of your migraines may be from a problem in your spine or cranial bones. It may be your diet or it could be a sign of more serious problems. You may be able to stop them completely with the correct treatment.
Migraines are a sign of imbalance, and imbalances can be fixed. You don’t need to suffer. Pay us a visit, or see your chiropractor.
