If you are experiencing a headache or a migraine and you’re having trouble finding relief on your own, turn to Jovive Health. We’re pleased to offer headache treatment and migraine treatment at our clinic in Cameron Park, California.
What Is a Migraine?
A migraine is a debilitating neurological condition that’s primarily characterized by a pounding or throbbing headache, usually on one side of the head. Other common symptoms of a migraine include:
- Skin paleness, tingling, or numbness
- Scalp tenderness
- Visual disturbances (for example, seeing flashing lights or wavy lines)
- Temporary vision loss
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Changes in smell or taste
- Difficulty speaking
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Feeling overly warm or cold
- Increased sensitivity to light, sound, and odors
These symptoms can last for hours or even days. In rare cases, migraines can also cause a fever or diarrhea.
Researchers are still trying to find a cure for migraines. However, certain treatments can help manage symptoms. Migraine treatment often involves taking medication. You may also find it helpful to massage your scalp and temples, place a cold compress on your forehead or the back of your neck, and sit or lie down in a dark, quiet room.
