UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

Migraine is quite different from how headache feels. People would surely misunderstand migraine as a common headache. However, headache is very different from migraine. If a person tells you that he or she is suffering from migraine, then do not take it for granted. Headache is tolerable, however, migraine is not.

Usually, when a person tells us that they are suffering from a migraine, we tend to just respond that we also suffer from headaches too. However, we must understand that a migraine is different from a simple headache. Headache can be a total pain however; migraine has more severe effects for the body. It is not just a normal headache that people would usually feel.

UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

So here are some differences of a migraine and a headache to help you have a better understanding on how difficult it is for a person who suffers from migraines:

MIGRAINE IS JUST A PAIN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HEAD

UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

Headache is a total throbbing and pain that you can feel in your entire head or face. However, with migraine, only the right side of your head is painful. It feels like your head is about to break; While headache is just tolerable and can be easily relieved by some head massage. But with migraine, no matter how much you massage your head, it will not relieve the pain.

 

TOO NAUSEATED TO GET UP

UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

People who suffer from migraine can no longer think well. All they have in mind is to punch the right side of their head just to relieve the pain. But no matter what a person who suffers from migraine does, the pain just will not go away easily. Getting up from bed is even impossible to do during this kind of suffering. A person with migraine is too nauseous and unwell to get up.

 

EVEN IF YOU TAKE SEVERAL MEDICATIONS IT WILL ONLY HAVE A MINIMAL IMPACT

UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

Taking some over the counter medicines has only a minimal effect. No matter how much you take some pain relievers, migraine will still be there. It can even stay for more than five hours or even take three days. This kind of sickness can be sever and harmful. So it is best to check a neurologist if the migraine still continues every now and then.

 

TOO MUCH SENSITIVITY TO LIGHT AND SOUND

UNDERSTANDING MIGRAINE

A person with migraine can become very sensitive to light and sound. The person who is suffering from it cannot bear to listen to noise or any low and soft music. Even lights can cause too much sever pain for a person with migraine.

Migraine is different from headache. So if a person or a friend, or someone you know is suffering from migraine, help that person immediately. It is not a normal headache that we usually feel. There is more suffering and pain with it. No matter how many medications are there, it will not cure the migraine easily. So take the person you know who suffers from migraine to a doctor right away. It is not a simple illness or sickness, it is time for you to be aware of it and educate others as well.
