Migraine headaches are severe and debilitating, with symptoms that can last for hours to days. These types of headaches usually start on one side of the head and can then spread to both sides. In addition to the headache, individuals may experience other symptoms such as pulsating or throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and fatigue. Some people also experience migraines with an aura, which can cause blind spots, flashes of light, and tingling sensations in the face or hands.
Migraines with aura are recurring and often coincide with sensory disturbances or occur right after them. Migraines are actually neurological disease that is affected by chemicals and involves nerve pathways. Changes in brain activity can affect the blood supply to the brain and surrounding tissues, which triggers the other symptoms of migraine headaches. If you experience recurring symptoms, it is important to seek Bellevue migraine treatment at South Bellevue Chiropractic & Massage.
