    Practical Things You Must Know About Migraine and Medications

    For as long as I can remember, I have considered myself a headachy person. At some point the headaches progressed to migraine. Fortunately, for most of my life I had infrequent episodic migraine (EM). An attack would start, I’d treat it with ibuprofen and I was better in an hour. I sought treatment when I began losing a few days per month to terrible attacks that didn’t respond to over-the-counter (OTC) remedies. Over time, my frequency of attacks increased and I “chronified” while under the care of my well-intentioned primary care physicians.

    An Athlete’s Migraine Journey and Life Lessons

    Many people believe athletes, like me, are indestructible. We train every day for long hours and monitor our food intake. So yes, of course, we are in great shape. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have some physical constraints or sometimes debilitating moments. Unfortunately for me and those athletes who are also migraine warriors, this experience isn’t a one time or a couple month or year-long rehab. Managing migraine is a daily, conscious effort to try to be okay.

    Painful stiff neck with your migraine attacks?

    A stiff, painful neck is common when it comes to migraine. I have had neck pain along with migraine for as long as I can remember. It took me a long time to realize, and believe, that the stiff, painful neck was actually a symptom related to migraine. It was not a separate underlying condition for me. However, cervical neck dysfunction can co-occur with migraine which can make the diagnosis more difficult.

    How To Take Control Of Nausea During A Migraine Attack

    One of the salient features of migraine - what distinguishes migraine from other headache disorders - is the presence of nausea. You don’t have to experience nausea in order for your headache to be considered migraine, but most people do experience it as part of their migraine attacks. The nausea does not actually come from the gut, but it is due to activation of certain areas of the brain by inflammatory neurotransmitters. Many anti-nausea medications can treat migraine as well, and could be a helpful addition to your acute migraine treatment plan.
