Were you looking for information about Migraine Headaches? Migrain headaches is a common misspelling of migraine headaches.
Migraines are a type of headache that usually begin between the ages of 5 and 55, and are more common in women than they are in men. These headaches are characterized by severe pain felt on one or both sides of the head. The pain is often described as an intense pulsing or throbbing pain in one area of the head. While some people can get as many as 10 migraine headaches per month, the average is about 1.5 per month.
While treatment for migraine headaches is individually tailored for each person, lifestyle changes, medications, and alternative treatments can all be considered. In addition, knowing and avoiding your triggers and reducing stress can help decrease the severity or frequency of migraines.
