Millions of people every year across the nation suffer from migraine headaches. Unfortunately, many of them don’t receive the proper treatment for their conditions simply because they are never properly diagnosed of them. Dr. Tavoussi of the Migraine Headache Institute in Newport Beach, Orange County offer both traditional and modern treatment methods for treating migraine headaches.
Symptoms of a Migraine Headache
A migraine headache is oftentimes simply referred to as an extremely severe headache. However, with normal headaches, people usually just experience throbbing around the temples, but with a migraine headache, the throbbing is usually much more intense than that of a regular headache, and it’s usually accompanied by various other symptoms as well. People suffering from a migraine headache are usually extremely sensitive to light and sound and may have to lock themselves up in a dark, quiet room to try to find relief from the pain. They might also feel nauseous and even end up experiencing vomiting. People might also experience dizziness, and usually, a migraine headache renders the individual completely incapable of working or functioning. Rather, all they can do is lay in bed in hopes of finding release from the pain.
Treatment for a Migraine Headache
Part of the reason why many people never receive the proper treatment for their migraine headaches is because they don’t ever go to a doctor over them. Many people, just believing them to be really painful headaches, end up riding them out on the own and might take over-the-counter medications to help alleviate their pain and other symptoms. While there are some over-the-count medications that are specifically designed to provide relief from migraines, they don’t always work for all people. Some people might need to have stronger prescription medications prescribed to them by their doctor, and Dr. Tavoussi’s Newport Beach and Orange County clinics are able to prescribe suffering patients with those stronger medications.
