Millions of people, particularly women, suffer from recurring attacks of migraine headaches.
Migraines are characterized by moderate pain, often on one side of the head, throbbing or pulsing sensations, sensitivity to light and sound, and occasionally nausea. Temporary vision loss, or the visual perception of flashing lights or zigzagging lines may signal the onset of a migraine headache. Hormonal changes in women, exposure to light, anxiety, stress, or a lack of food or sleep have all been associated with the onset of migraine headaches.
Pain management specialists have various treatment options to help patients find relief.
