Were you looking for information on a Migraine? Migrain is a common misspelling of migraine.
Affecting an estimated 28 million Americans, migraine headaches are characterized by severe pain that is felt mostly in the front, around the temples, or behind one eye or ear. The pain can last a few hours or up to one or two days. The exact causes are unknown, but some common triggers include lack of sleep, stress, and certain foods. Migraines most often affect people between the ages of 15 and 55. Treatment options can include medications, lifestyle changes, and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture.
Each time you have a migraine, write down the time of day, what you were doing, and factors that may have played a role. By documenting your migraines' frequency and severity, as well as possible links to physical, emotional, or environmental factors, your healthcare provider can better understand your condition and devise a treatment plan.
