If you have been diagnosed with migraine, chances are you’ve experienced migraine ear pressure. That more than uncomfortable feeling of fullness and pressure in your ears. Like you have water trapped in your ears and you can’t release it. Worse is when ear pressure fluctuates so it feels or even sounds like bubbling or popping or a fluttering feeling in your ear making it nearly impossible to ignore. These ear pressure fluctuations may cause hearing to become distorted. You may even experience temporary & fluctuating hearing loss with migraine ear pressure changes.
Vertigo is unpleasant to say the least. True room spinning vertigo is, in my opinion, one the most hideous symptoms someone with vestibular migraine can experience. Imagine turning your head and suddenly feeling and seeing the world violently spinning around you. Like you’re seeing the world from the perspective of a child’s top spinning on a table. It leaves you feeling helpless as you clumsily feel your way to the bathroom to be sick and wait for it to end. Could a natural supplement like magnesium for vertigo really help to ease this sensation of spinning?
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a form of physical therapy aimed at reducing symptoms of dizziness, vertigo, and lightheadedness in those who have vestibular dysfunction. Those with Vestibular Migraine, a very common vestibular diagnosis, are some of the many people who benefit from VRT.
One of the most common questions people with migraine have is, “what can I take to get rid of this migraine attack that is over-the-counter.” Another inquiry is about what to do when their usual acute medication is inconsistent. They are often surprised by hearing that Benadryl for migraine is often helpful.
There is no question that migraine is a disease that occurs on a spectrum. Some people experience chronic daily symptoms while others get attacks just a few times a year. So each of us experience migraine disease differently. Yet, all of us want to be sure it impacts our life as little as possible. Learning everything you can about treatment, triggers and managing symptoms can lessen its impact on your life and empower you to take control over your symptoms. I’ve compiled a list of books about migraine as educational resources to help you do just that.
New Yok City, November 2017: It was the week of Thanksgiving. Luckily I had a few days off of work as I came down with a really bad cold. Fever, chills, achiness, the whole shebang. I was so sore and fatigued that I couldn’t get out of bed at times. I vividly remember my eyeballs being really sore. It hurt to move my eyes from side to side or up and down.
There are many different types of migraine or headache disorders. The list of different types of migraine and headache disorders is below with their typical symptoms as well. Because many of them overlap, or for the overachievers who have multiple different types of headache, it’s best to get diagnosed by a headache specialist.
When I first saw the Allay Green Light for migraine relief I’m going to admit, I was a bit skeptical. When you see an ad for it scroll across your Facebook newsfeed, it hurts your eyes a little to look at it. Rest assured that green light you see through your computer screen is not the light emitted from the lamp. The Allay light bulb contains no color mingling or color interference like on your computer screen or phone. It’s a pure, flicker-free light that’s gentler than every other light. As I read positive reviews and learned who developed the lamp, it definitely started to spark my interest. I wondered…
Migraine comes with a long list of symptoms two of which are nausea and vomiting. While there are many medications that are available for use in treating migraine nausea and vomiting, many people are sensitive to these medications or unable to take them due to contraindications with...
When Allay gifted me their green light for migraine to review six months ago, I didn’t think it would become one of my favorite tools in my toolkit. In these past months, I have been successfully using it as a preventive and abortive treatment. When I first wrote about the Allay Lamp, I explained how the narrow band of green light in the lamp worked. It was a novel item I had added to my migraine toolkit. But it has been six months now and my love of the Allay Lamp is still going strong. I thought I would write an update on how the lamp and I have been doing.…
