Facts About Migraines
A migraine is a serious medical condition, like the flu or pneumonia. It’s a complex neurological disorder that can make you miserable for hours to days at a time and can affect work and relationships. The pain isn’t just on one side of your head but instead comes in blindingly intense waves or bands of electrical signals radiating throughout your brain, and it’s not easy to relieve—often times no matter how hard people try they can’t find relief because their treatments may not be effective.
Since there are different types of migraines, such as those triggered by light sensitivity, sound sensitivity (noise), smells, or eating specific foods for example; it’s difficult to diagnose and treat them all efficiently.
Headaches are abnormal sensations transmitted from the head to the brain, typically experienced as throbbing pain. Migraine headaches may also be described as pounding, sharp or pulsating.
For some people, migraine is not an occasional event, but rather a chronic condition with an average of six headache episodes per month (disabling for approximately 10 hours over three days). Sufferers often have a history of attacks dating back years and oftentimes experience “aura” symptoms such as flashes in their visual field near the time of onset. Many patients report triggers that include anxiety or stress and specific foods like chocolate.
Migraine headaches are different for everyone who experiences them. The most common symptoms of migraines include headache; nausea and vomiting; sensitivity to light and sound; pain in your neck, shoulders, or arms that can spread to the rest of your body; pain that worsens with physical activity.
For some people, migraines can include some or all of these additional symptoms: abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation, extreme fatigue (fatigue), sensitivity to odors, urinary frequency. Migraines are more than just severe headaches, although that is one key symptom.
How Does Ketamine Help Migraines?
Ketamine works to help with migraines by attaching itself to receptors in the brain and blocking any pain signals from being sent out, as well as calming down some other areas so they don’t send more conflicting messages.
