Chronic Migraine

What is a Migraine and How Does it Affect people?

Migraines are severe, recurring and painful headaches, that can last for hours or even days at a time. It is often characterized by a throbbing or pulsing sensation and is sometimes accompanied by nausea and sensory sensitivity. The after effects can cause symptoms such as confusion, dizziness, weakness, and moodiness.

Migraine is a condition that was found to be the sixth highest cause of years lost due to disability and affects approximately 12% of the population. Migraine attacks can increase with frequency over time, and many of the people affected by an episodic migraine will develop chronic migraine.

What are the Causes and Impacts of Chronic Migraine?

Chronic migraines are defined as more than 15 headache days per month and have no single cause. Triggers differ from person to person and can vary between sleep deprivation and imbalances in the body.

Patients with chronic migraine are nearly four times more likely to visit the emergency room within any three-month period and are at higher risk of suffering serious mental health issues.

Chronic migraine is progressive, and it is very important to recognize how often your life is disrupted by it. The longer a person suffers without chronic migraine treatment, the more likely they are to continue being affected by it rather than regressing back into normality.
