Migraine Headache Overview

Migraine headache is characterized by a throbbing headache of moderate to severe intensity. The pain is usually on one side of the head, but may involve both.

Migraine headaches may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and over-sensitivity to light, sound, or smell. Routine physical activity may aggravate symptoms. Migraine headaches can last a couple of hours or a couple of days.

Some migraine headaches are preceded by an aura. Aura symptoms include zigzag light patterns, flashing lights, and even blind spots. Aura are not always visual. Other senses, motor skills, and speech may be affected.

Many things trigger migraine headaches, including fatigue, stress, certain foods, or changes in the weather. Other triggers exist as well, so the onset of a migraine may seem random.

Our definition of chronic migraines is

  • At least fifteen days of headache each month for three months or more
  • Headache that lasts at least four hours
  • A trial and a tribulation

Many people who think they have been fighting “sinus” headaches all their lives actually suffer from migraines.

Medicines we use to prevent migraine headaches include anti-seizure/anticonvulsants, antidepressants, calcium channel blockers, or beta blockers, Botox® and CGRP (calcitonin gene related peptide) receptor blockers.

Medicines we use to break an active migraine headache include triptans, ergotamine, acetaminophen, NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen) or combination pills.

What our Migraine Patients are Saying

It was such a relief to find a doctor that was actually interested in PREVENTING my daughters headaches rather than just try to figure out why she's getting them! Thank you Dr. Barry! We've waited a long time to finally get the right doctor.

Saw Dr. Barry for intractable migraine. He was kind and listened to my concerns. I did not feel rushed, and had all of my questions answered to my satisfaction.

Love Dena and her staff. She’s not only got my migraines under control she’s also tamed my trigeminal neuralgia. If you have a neurological disorder ask for Dena. You won’t be disappointed.

Dena Miller is great. She really cares about her patients and listens. I have been going to them for 3 years with my migraine headaches and we are getting a hold on them.

The people in the infusion room were great and very understanding of the pain the I was experiencing. They did all they could to make me comfortable during a difficult day. I am glad I was able to get in on the same day.
