What Is a Migraine?

A migraine headache is an intense headache that can become so severe that it disrupts your day-to-day life. While migraine headaches are painful, they also cause other symptoms not associated with a normal headache. Migraines can become a chronic condition that requires lifestyle changes or ongoing pain management.

Only a qualified migraine pain specialist can effectively treat these headaches. Visit a migraine specialist at New York Pain Care to discover what’s causing yours so you can receive targeted treatment. Migraines typically occur in four stages. Although they can overlap, the common stages include:

  1. Prodrome. Physiological changes announce a coming migraine.
  2. Aura. These visual cues signal an impending or occurring migraine.
  3. Attack. You experience most painful symptoms of your migraine.
  4. Post-drome. You experience the exhausting consequences of an attack.

What If I Don’t Treat My Migraine?

Your migraines can become chronic if the condition is left untreated. Chronic migraine attacks occur up to 15 days per month, but you may feel some of the symptoms every day. Migraines can force you to withdraw from the ones you love and the lifestyle you’ve developed. Don’t allow migraines to take over your life; seek a diagnosis and treatment.
