One of the more common type of headaches, migraine's affect 4 percent of children, 6 percent of men, and 18 percent of women, and is prevalent among people aged 25 and 55. While most attacks can last for up to 72 hours, they can also strike once or twice a week, to once or twice a year.
What are the symptoms of Migraine Headache?
There are two types of migraine, called aura migraine and classic migraine. With an aura migraine, a person tends to experience visual disturbances, most commonly spots, flashing lights or a pattern similar to herringbone, ten to thirty minutes prior to the onset of painful migraine symptoms. A classic migraine has no aural type presentations.
Men tend to experience aura type migraines more often than women, and only one in five people who get migraines will have an aura.
Both types of migraines display an intense sensitivity to light, throbbing pains, pressure behind the eyes, and in some cases, nausea and vomiting. One may also experience fatigue, drowsiness, numbness, sleepiness, euphoria, or cravings for sweet or salty food. Many women also get them around the time of their period.
What Causes Migraine Headaches?
So, what triggers a migraine attack? Doctors may not be wholly sure, but they do know that during a migraine attack, the artery that lies on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple enlarges. This artery is called the temporal artery. The enlargement of the temporal artery stretches the nerves that coil around the artery, making the nerves release chemicals. The chemicals create further enlargement of the artery, intensifying the inflammation and pain. As the artery continues to enlarge exponentially, the pain starts to become unbearable.
Will Painwave X4000 Help with Migraine?
Yes it will! The revolutionary Painwave X4000 is a non-invasive, drug-free method of relief that is ideal for migraine sufferers. This is because the Painwave X4000 works in concert with the body’s own bioelectromagnetic ecosystem. The Painwave X4000 also has no reported side effects as the unit is simply moved over the surface of the skin in a small circular motion to provide effective pain relief. After a short period of time, Painwave X4000 can improve blood circulation, cell activity and lymphatic movements. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate migraine pain for good.
