Migraine, a disease that people consider a common headache

Migraine is not a common headache, but it is a condition that darkens in front of the human eyes, while some start to feel drowsy, even some people start vomiting and nausea.

According to a 2018 study, people under the age of 50 have any kind of disability due to migraine.

Many people do not consult a doctor ignoring the seriousness of migraine, due to which they may face difficulties in the future.

A new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Neurology has shown that headaches and migraines are related to sleep, which is called circadian systems in biological organs.

What is migraine?

Kylie Petrarca, associate program director of the American Association of Migraine Disorders, says that it is now a long time to consider migraine as a common pain, where headaches can usually be tolerated, migraine is very severe and sometimes the body starts to feel very weak.

Dr Stewart Tapper, a Lebanese-based neurologist, said migraine pain starts deep in the brain and affects parts of the nervous system.

According to the National Library of Medicine, this pain is about three times more common in women than in men.

It is usually found in one in five women, compared to one in every 15 men.

Due to the high severity of migraine on women, large fluctuations of sex hormones lead to changes in NHE1.

Is migraine a genetic disease?

Health experts say that no definitive cause of this disease has been revealed yet and no cure has been revealed.

However, some people get rid of this pain temporarily by using headache medicines.

Experts say that if one person in the family gets a migraine, it is possible that the disease can also be passed on to the next generation, but it is very unlikely.

However, half the headache can also be caused by an injury to the brain, in addition to the hominal changes that also cause a migraine attack.

The exact cause of migraines is not known, although they are believed to be the result of chemicals in the brain, temporary changes in nerves and blood vessels.

Mental symptoms

It can last from five minutes to 72 hours.

During this time, symptoms such as blurred vision, bright light burning, change in voice are also seen.

Other symptoms of a half-headache include dizziness, dizziness, mood swings, yawning, severe neck pain, and an unusual increase in appetite demand.

It is estimated that 25 million days of leave is taken every year due to this pain in the UK alone, but migraine has been the world’s least funded disease compared to health and economic burden.

Treatment of migraine

Since no definitive cause of this disease has been revealed or treated yet, there have been several suggestions to help reduce the symptoms of this pain.

Many people get temporary relief by taking paracetamol or headache medications.

Or many people try to sleep by darkening the room, so that the pain can be reduced.
