IF you experience migraines, you’ll know how debilitating they can be.
In the meantime, all you can do is lie in bed in the dark and keep the noise down.
Although migraines can feel very isolating, if you suffer, you are not alone.
Almost 9 million people in the UK – 14 per cent of the population – suffer from migraines with around 200,000 migraines being experienced every day.
Migraine is a leading cause of disability worldwide and the highest in the working population.
So, if you suffer from migraines what does the latest research say about your best treatment options and what does the future hold?
What is a migraine?
Migraine is not an ordinary headache, it’s a neuro-vascular disorder.
Migraine can be hereditary – meaning if one or both of your parents suffer, it’s very likely you will too, though you can still get migraine even if your parents don’t have them.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, migraines occur when specific nerves in blood vessels release substances that send pain signals to the brain.
What we don’t fully understand yet, is why they do that. This is one area where further research is ongoing with treatments aiming to prevent the release of these pain signals.
