Medical information

Migraine is a common condition that affects more women than men and relates to attacks of headaches. Some people have frequent attacks but some people have attacks only occasionally.  The exact cause of migraine is unknown, but is thought to be related to changes in brain chemical.


There are 2 main types of migraine:

  • migraine attack without aura
  • migraine attack with aura

The differences will be explained below.


Symptoms
For migraine headache, it usually happens to one side of the head, although it may spread to both sides later on. The pain can be described as throbbing or pulsating. The attack can last for 4-72 hours.


A migraine attack can be typically divided into 4 phases:
  • a warning phase - feeling irritable, tired or depressed. These feelings can occurs hours or days before headache.
  • the aura phase - temporary loss of part of vision or flashes to lights. The aura phase happens those who suffer from migraine attack with aura.
  • the headache phase
  • the resolution phase - headache slowly disappears but you may be feeling tired, depressed and have difficulty concentrating.


Other symptoms that may occur during  a migraine attack are:

  • nausea and vomiting
  • not liking bright light or loud noises and wanting to stay in a dark room


Treatments

There are triggers that can cause migraine attack, such as diet, environmental (loud noises, flickering lights, strong smell), psychological (stress, anxiety) factors and medicines. Keeping a migraine diary and avoiding these triggers may be useful in preventing migraine.

Painkillers are usually used to manage symptoms of migraine. However, if they do not work, triptan medicines are prescribed as an alternative. Medicinesbymailbox provides triptan medicines in different formulations:
