PRLog - Oct. 11, 2011 - CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For many, the pain of a migraine headache causes debilitation almost too much to endure. Both the constant throbbing and the feeling of missing out on life are agonizing. Here at Charlotte’s Premiere Health (http://www.premiere-health.com), much of Dr. Carol Rupe’s extensive career as a private family doctor has been spent treating patients suffering from chronic migraines. With her knowledgeable background Dr. Rupe wants you to know some key facts about migraines.

   Migraines are a Chronic Condition

   Migraine headaches can strike without warning. The pain can be so intense as to leave you bed ridden. Migraines sometimes coincide with various symptoms such as vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and blurred vision. Patients also report seeing bright flashing dots, blind spots, and auras (wavy or jagged lines) which are signals of an oncoming migraine. Other onsets of a migraine include fever, nausea, and tingling sensations in the body’s extremities. A person suffering from a migraine usually experiences moderate to severe throbbing pain that can affect the whole head or shift from one side of the brain to the other.

   Migraines Require Treatment
   
   Although there is no medically known cure for chronic migraines, there are two approaches to treating them. Abortive therapy focuses on stopping the migraine once it starts. Medication should be taken when you feel the migraine coming or if it has already started. Patients report this form of therapy particularly useful if they typically feel nausea or vomit during the onset of a migraine. Medicines used for abortive treatment usually mimic the function of the neural transmitter serotonin in the brain. Abortive medications deploy to quickly reduce the swelling of blood vessels in the brain, effectively stopping migraine pain.
   Doctors recommend the second form of treatment, known as preventative therapy, when migraines occur frequently or are particularly severe. This form of therapy aims to reduce how often migraines occur and lower the intensity of the pain. Taken on a daily basis, these medications include drugs designed to also treat high blood pressure, depression, and seizures.
