Migraine, a real disease

Before knowing the diagnosis of this strange illness which handicaps us on a daily basis and prevents us from living each moment fully without fear, we live in a little anxiety. What is this pain that hammers the head and which paracetamol does not relieve? Are they neurological problems? Is it serious ? Dangerous ? How can we treat it? Is there a drug treatment? A natural treatment? Studies on this disease are still too few to allow specialists to draw general conclusions and explore avenues to find lasting solutions to relieve it. However, certain medicinal plants have proven effective in relieving pain. Be wise, oh my sorrow!

Migraine and self-medication: proof of therapeutic wandering

Self-medication includes:
  • Pharmaceutical products,
  • Natural products ,
  • Natural Healing,
  • Alternative medicines,
  • Sports,
  • Anything that can relieve pain.

To treat yourself, you must keep in mind that it is recommended to benefit from psychological, neurological and medical support. The medical profession is increasingly listening to migraine sufferers, seeking and offering solutions. Doctors move forward by trial and error, but they move forward. Headache patients can now choose from a selection of medications intended to treat other conditions with the aim of triggering a neutralizing effect on migraine. A specialist in neurology will be able to offer several basic treatments to help you relieve migraine. If we often hear, when we have migraines, that we must take ibuprofen, doliprane, paracetamol or another anti-inflammatory and it should go away, unfortunately it is not that simple. Migraine is a vicious disease, which occurs unexpectedly. Although we are beginning to identify the triggers and other environmental factors, we are still far from easily treating the dysfunction produced by migraines when a patient presents to a doctor or neurologist. Faced with this therapeutic wandering and especially faced with a real obstacle course, patients come together, discuss, and exchange techniques, ideas, solutions. We know there is no ideal solution, but we already feel less alone. The key is to manage to preserve your crisis capital as much as possible, whether by finding crisis medications, basic treatments or natural alternatives, such as medical devices to relieve migraines . Fortunately, self-medication is an interesting solution within everyone's reach. There are natural (or not so natural) products that relieve headache pain. This respite allows you to gain time against the illness. This is tremendous hope for migraine sufferers; However, remain vigilant and watch out for medication overuse, as it can be very dangerous.

Migraine, a disease not recognized as disabling

The first symptoms are often common: tingling, diffuse discomfort that spreads slowly, a stiff neck, then a shooting pain that grows on one side of the head, nausea and vomiting in the worst cases, an inability to think. , intolerance to smells or noises, etc. The frequency of crises depends on each person, daily life, and the environment in which the person lives. Light, smells, noise, screens, food, everything can harm us. Then over time, we get to know ourselves better. As a migraine sufferer, we know when the onset of a chronic headache is inevitable. That we will probably find ourselves bedridden for at least several hours, in the dark (photophobia), and in silence (phonophobia)! Migraine is therefore a debilitating disease. However, we can have plans to feel better... but not to get better. Gentle techniques and methods can help relieve the pain caused by migraine, such as gentle sport or meditation, and relaxation techniques. Everyone can test their own solutions and apply them as long as they work. Anything that can naturally (preferably) relieve the pain of a migraine is good to take. Legally, migraine is recognized as a disease in its own right, but not as a disabling disease . Which, at work as in everyday life, is complicated to manage. However, having a migraine is debilitating. It remains to have it recognized.

The direct and indirect consequences of tension headaches

Having migraines has direct consequences on daily life, but also indirect consequences. Tension headaches incapacitate the patient, forcing them to remain isolated for a period of time, often several days a month. The direct consequence is progressive isolation, then exclusion from those close to them (family and friends). We quickly feel less reliable, less available, less present. And then, we must keep in mind that pain transforms people, and this also affects those around the person with migraine, who gradually move away. Being in pain can also make you aggressive. We are not all equal when it comes to pain and its management. People suffering from chronic migraines can attest to this: we no longer feel like ourselves. We can no longer express our full potential in all areas of life. Frustration comes quickly then depression or even depression. When you have migraine, you are not in good health, you are really sick... and the migraine sufferer is obliged to try one basic treatment after another, until you find the one that will significantly reduce the duration of the attacks, the pain intensity, triggering factors, or all at once.
