While there is no silver bullet for getting rid of migraines or even a universally effective course of treatment or preventive care, you still have many options when it comes to managing your migraine headache symptoms.
Is it a migraine or another type of headache? It’s good to know the difference. That’s because you may be able to prevent migraines from occurring if you learn what triggers your migraines or by taking preventive medications.
The symptoms of migraines are all too familiar to those who suffer from them. You might see flashes of light and/or feel pins and needles that foreshadow the attack. These are followed by a throbbing headache, light sensitivity, nausea, fainting and more.
