Migraine

Migraine is a complex disorder characterized by repeated episodes of headache, most often unilateral.

Why do outbursts of anger occur?

Migraine is more common in women and has an important genetic component.

 

Typical symptoms of migraine are:

 

  • throbbing headache, which increases in intensity with movement or physical activity

  • the pain is usually unilateral, on one half of the head

  • the pain lasts between 4 and 72 hours

  • nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite

  • increased sensitivity to light (photophobia) and noise (phonophobia).

Causes:

Genetic component - approximately 70% of migraine patients have a first-degree relative with a history of migraine; the risk of having a migraine is increased 4 times in the relatives of people who have migraine with aura.

 

A number of factors have been identified that precipitate a migraine attack:

  • hormonal changes: menstruation, pregnancy, ovulation
  • insufficient or excessive sleep
  • certain medicines (contraceptives)
  • strong odors
  • cold stimuli (ice cream)
  • weather changes
  • red wine, smoking
  • certain foods and food additives: artificial sweeteners, caffeine, monoglutamate, citrus, meat with nitrates.

Biofeedback and neurofeedback improve self-regulation and strengthen the ability to moderate blood flow to the brain by reducing headaches over a long period of time.

Biofeedback works better than medications to reduce migraine.

Of those who choose neurofeedback, 54% had complete cessation of migraine and 39% had greater than 50% reduction.
