Home Doctor Treatment for Migraines Marbella

home doctor treatment for migraines in Marbella

When your head is under pressure or pain, it can be difficult to tell whether you have a typical headache or migraine. It is important to differentiate migraine headache from typical headache, and vice versa, as it may imply quicker recovery by better treatments. It can also help prevent potential headaches from happening in the first place. In here we talk about migraines and when to get a home doctor treatment for migraines in Marbella as a member of Helicopteros Sanitarios.


Is it migraine?

Migraine can cause serious throbbing or pulsating pain, usually on one side of the head, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine episodes will linger for hours or days, and the discomfort can be so intense that it will interfere with the everyday routines.

Medications can help avoid some migraines and render them less intense. The right medications, along with self-help remedies and lifestyle changes, may help.


Symptoms of migraine

These headaches are acute or severe and often include other symptoms than headache:

  • nausea
  • pain behind one eye or ear
  • pain in the temples
  • seeing spots or flashing lights
  • sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • temporary vision loss
  • vomiting

When compared with tension or other headache types, migraine headaches can be mild and they can also be so severe that some people will seek care at an emergency room. Migraine headaches will typically affect only one side of the head but it is possible to have a migraine headache that affects both sides of the head. Other differences include the intensity of the discomfort: migraine headache can induce intense pain that can be throbbing and can make it really challenging to do everyday activities.
