Relief for Migraines and Severe Headaches
Migraines and severe, chronic headaches are more common than many want to admit. Almost one out of ten people nationwide suffer from them, and with the massive increase in digital work, they are only increasing. Forty million people are dealing with migraines, particularly a severe and debilitating form of headache. Some cases are so bad that they are repetitive, with severe cases having clusters that occur two or three weeks a month. They can last for days without migraine relief, exhausting a patient, causing other problems, such as weight loss, starvation, and dehydration.
Many people assume that migraines and similar come from stress, car accidents, bad posture, and lack of sleep. While these factors can trigger headaches, migraines and severe headaches are challenging problems for the medical community. Some people get migraines due to changes in the weather and barometric pressure. Others manifest migraines from extreme practices, such as eye strain or chemical exposure.
Chronic Headache or Migraine Occurs
Unlike a primary headache, a migraine usually involves a combination of system reactions. The most common are sensitivity to light, extreme pain in the head and neck, nausea, and sensitivity to smell. All or a combination of these symptoms usually trigger vomiting. This makes the headache worse and causes dehydration, which also makes headaches worse. The vicious circle can continue for hours and days unless the symptoms are broken and the patient can relax and hydrate again. The typical hospital approach combines a pain-killer, anti-nausea medicine, and a saline drip for immediate hydration restoration.
