Migraines Q & A

What are the symptoms of a migraine?

Migraine symptoms are more severe than those of other types of headaches. Common migraine symptoms include:

  • Throbbing pain, usually on only one side of the head
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smell
  • Numbness and tingling in the face, jaw, or arms
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Nasal congestion
  • Neck pain and stiffness

Migraines typically last 4-72 hours and may be preceded by an aura, or a sense that a migraine is about to begin. Auras may include food cravings, muscle tension and stiffness, and visual disturbances like seeing flashes of light.

How are headaches and migraines different?

Headaches have less severe symptoms than migraines and generally don’t last as long. However, chronic daily headaches or having headaches more than 15 days out of the month can be debilitating as well.

Migraines are considered a neurological condition in which the normal pain pathways in your brain are altered. This may be due to genetics, hormonal factors, fluctuations in weather, or dietary habits.

Headaches occur for a variety of reasons, many of which are related to dehydration or low blood sugar, muscle tension, or blood flow issues arising from high blood pressure or exertion when exercising. Headaches may also be secondary to another medical condition, like chronic kidney disease or an infection.

What treatment is available for migraines and headaches?

At Complete Health Medical Center, the team offers conservative and minimally invasive approaches to migraine and headache treatment, including:

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine, including mesenchymal stem cells, Wharton’s jelly, and platelet-rich plasma, can be used to decrease inflammation associated with migraines and headaches.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care can relieve muscle tension, neck stiffness, and musculoskeletal pain that contribute to tension headaches.

Lifestyle counseling

Lifestyle counseling, including nutritional recommendations, suggestions for decreasing stress, and strategies to incorporate exercise and restful sleep into your daily life, can reduce the severity and frequency of headaches and migraines.

Using a combination of these therapies, the Complete Health Medical Center team addresses your pain and works with you to improve your quality of life.

How does regenerative medicine help with migraines?

Current research suggests that regenerative medicine products reduce inflammation associated with migraines and chronic headaches. With less inflammation, the pain pathways in your brain become less irritated, which can reduce the frequency and severity of your symptoms.
