Migraine Headache Treatment
It is estimated that 40 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches that interfere with their life. These throbbing, severe headaches tend to be activated by certain triggers that can vary from patient to patient. While there is not a cure for migraines, there are effective options to manage and control migraine episodes. At Caliber Pain™, we utilize the most advanced interventional medicine treatments and therapies to give headache relief to our patients. Come see us in New York City if you are looking for innovative migraine headache treatment.
Symptoms of Migraine Headaches
While up to 80% of adults may experience a tension headache routinely, migraines only affect about 10%-12% of people. The cause is unknown, but migraines do tend to run in families, making a genetic connection likely. Symptoms of migraines go well beyond just a “headache” and can include:
- Throbbing, pulsating head pain, usually beginning on one side of the head
- Head pain and symptoms lasting four hours up to a few days
- Light, sound and odor sensitivity
- Nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite
- Dizziness and fatigue
- Blurred vision
- Tenderness of the scalp
- Period of warmth or cold (sweating or chills)
Each patient with migraine headaches may experience different symptoms, and episodes can be triggered by different events. Stress, stimuli, chemicals and other factors can be triggers and may need to be avoided.
Our pain specialists at Caliber Pain™ can help our patients with migraines find the right treatment plan to manage their condition. We can create a personalized treatment plan using interventional medicine to control and manage migraine headaches. Botox injections, acupuncture and other therapies can be used for migraine headache treatment.
