Dr. Tavoussi is a skilled physician who treats migraine headaches at his Newport Beach office in Orange County. However, many people who suffer from migraine headaches don’t even realize that they do because properly diagnosing migraine headaches is oftentimes difficult. Many of the symptoms associated with these types of headaches are indicative of a variety of other ailments, so people who get migraine headaches might believe that they are suffering from something else. Dr. Tavoussi can diagnose and then treat migraine headaches at his Newport Beach office in Orange County. However, before people ever visit Dr. Tavoussi, they might want to evaluate their symptoms to see if they are indeed suffering from symptoms that could be due to migraine headaches.
Extreme Sensitivity to Light and Sound
Extreme Sensitivity to light and sound are perhaps the most common symptoms of migraine headaches. This is why when you visit Dr. Tavoussi at his Newport Beach office in Orange County, you’ll usually be asked if you’ve experienced this. While people who experience regular headaches might be a bit sensitive to light and sound, those suffering from a migraine usually have to lock themselves up in a dark and quiet space and cannot function at all throughout the duration of their migraines.
Although a certain amount of pain is associated with a regular headache, the pain usually isn’t so debilitating that you can’t function. When you’re suffering from a migraine headache, though, the pain might be so acute that you can barely sit or stand without your world spinning around you and your head throbbing intensely and painfully. The pain associated with migraines is sometimes so acute that all the sufferer can do is lay down and attempt to sleep through the pain. This is part of why when you visit Dr. Tavoussi at his Newport Beach office in Orange County he’ll usually ask you to rate your pain on a scale of one to ten.
Nausea and Vomiting
Nausea and vomiting are also associated with migraine headaches. Usually, when people are suffering from a regular headache, they don’t experience nausea or vomiting. However, it’s quite common for people having a migraine to suddenly feel sick. Even those who don’t end up vomiting might be extremely nauseous and feel on the verge of vomiting at any moment.
People having a migraine might also feel dizzy or lightheaded, which is another reason that most people suffering from a migraine find themselves unable to function normally. You might feel a sensation of disorientation like you could topple over any minute when standing along with the throbbing in your head, face and neck.
When you see Dr. Tavoussi at his Newport Beach office in Orange County, one of the first questions he’ll ask you is if you’ve experienced blurred vision. Blurred vision along with pounding in the head is a tell-tale sign of a migraine.
