Often the migraine sufferer experiences severe mood alterations and changes in their behaviour hours or days before the actual onset of a migraine attack.
Some people experience an 'aura', or flashes of light and they have real difficulty in focusing their eyes.
The eyes become extremely sensitive to light and even minor noises and sounds become practically unbearable.
The head usually throbs with a kind of pulsating pain and there is often the feeling of nausea which, for some, can result in vomiting.
Eventually, sleep brings some relief, but the person who has experienced the migraine attack is left feeling weak, exhausted and generally debilitated for quite some time afterwards.
Medically speaking, migraine is considered to be an 'idiopathic' disorder. This simply means that the real and actual cause is unknown to medical science.
It is thought that the neurotransmitter serotonin may be lacking in those suffering from migraine episodes, but the reason why this is the case remains unknown to medical science.
In the UK, it is estimated that more than 6 million people suffer from migraine, while in the USA the number is estimated to be in excess of 35 million.
In fact, migraine is the most common neurological condition known.
The very first thing to do when you experience migraine is to visit your doctor or medical advisor in order to have a proper check up.
You need to be certain that the migraine is not symptomatic of some underlying disorder.
The conventional medical response may be to prescribe drugs - often containing barbiturates or narcotics - intended to reduce and alleviate the symptoms of migraine.
Though such an approach may be helpful in the short term, it is by no means a cure.
Indeed, research has found that people treated with these drugs are at increased risk of worsening the frequency of their migraine headaches.
If you or someone you care about suffers from migraine and have tried the conventional medical approach without any real help, then perhaps it is time to look elsewhere.
The well trained and experienced hypnotherapist realizes that the actual reason for the migraine often lies in the past.
Originating from the subconscious mind, a migraine episode may have been triggered as some kind of defence mechanism, intended to protect the individual from what was perceived to be an even more stressful situation or experience.
Modern advanced transformational hypnotherapy may help you to uncover the underlying cause of your migraine and then to do something about it.
The link between levels of stress and onset of migraine attacks is quite well established and good hypnotherapy can teach you to deal with stress in a more effective and less harmful manner.
The ability of hypnosis to work with the subconscious and unconscious mind in order to control the contraction and restriction of blood vessels, thereby allowing blood to flow more freely to the brain, is also a way in which this alternative approach can be very effective.
When you have had enough of your migraine headaches, when you have tired of the conventional medical response, then perhaps it is time to consider working with a fully qualified and experienced advanced transformational hypnotherapist.
After all, the only thing you really have to lose is those terrible migraine headaches.
