Types of Migraines : Understanding a Neuro Disease

This video talks about the different types of migraines. A migraine is a pulsing or throbbing
pain in one side of the head. Subsequently, it causes nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light
and sound. Contrary to common beliefs, migraines are not all alike. Your migraine can be very
different from someone else’s. Thus, it is essential to identify the type of migraine you have.
To ensure you are doing the right course of action.

The three most common types of migraines include:

  • The first common type is the migraine with aura. It is also known as complicated
    migraine. It is because an aura can occur before or during a migraine attack. Specifically,
    an aura is a series of sensory and visual changes. These include zig-zags, black dots, and
    tingling numbness to one side of the body. To some, an aura serves as a warning sign.
    People with migraine confirm that it is a prelude to incoming severe head pain. 
  • The second common type is migraine without aura. It a pulsing and throbbing pain
    usually associated with migraine. This type of migraine can last anywhere from minutes
    to hours. However, without the warning phases like the aura, you will not see a common
    migraine coming until it occurs. 
  • The third common type is migraine without head pain. It is also called the silent or
    acephalgic migraine. In contrast to the other types of migraines, this migraine behaves
    differently. You experience the aura and all other visual discomforts. Other symptoms
    of migraines might also be present such as vomiting, sensitivity to light, or sound. The only
    thing that is missing is the headache. Hence, the name.

There are still several types of migraines with different characteristics and symptoms.
The above mentioned are just the most common types of migraines identified by the
International Headache Society.

Why Do We Get A Stiff Neck?

A stiff neck is commonly caused by a neck muscle strain or soft tissue sprain. It is described
as a soreness and in difficulty moving the neck. Sometimes, a stiff neck can be accompanied
by headache, shoulder pain, neck pain and/or arm pain. Some of the most common activities
that can cause stiff necks includes sleeping with the neck in an awkward position. Sport injuries
are also common causes for athletes. A bad fall or sudden impact that forcefully pushes the head
to the side is a popular cause among adults. Additionally, turning the head side to side repeatedly
during an activity such as swimming as well as slouching with poor posture for prolonged periods
can lead to neck tension. Moreover, studies are now acknowledging excessive stress or anxiety
as cause for a variety of physical discomforts. When you cradle your phone at one side of the
head and putting the neck in an abnormal position for a long period of time can also cause stiff neck.
Furthermore, underlying disorder of the cervical spine such as cervical herniated disc, cervical
degenerative disc disease and cervical osteoarthritis are also contributing factors.

Tips on Lingering Shingles Pain

Lingering shingles pain is a common complication of shingles. The pain continues even
after the shingle rash has disappeared. To understand it better, let us talk about shingles.
So what is it? Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. It can occur anywhere
on the body. However, it often appears as a stripe of blisters that wraps around the left or
right side of the torso. Now. shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is the same
virus that causes chickenpox. When you get healed from shingles or chickenpox, the virus
stays dormant until the immune system weakens. Then, they attack the dermatome nerves
in your back. Thus causing the pain.

Do you have Trigeminal neuralgia?

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, which carries sensation from your face to your brain. If you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mild stimulation of your face — such as from brushing your teeth or putting on makeup — may trigger a jolt of excruciating pain. You may initially experience short, mild attacks. But trigeminal neuralgia can progress and cause longer, more-frequent bouts of searing pain. Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men, and it’s more likely to occur in people who are older than 50. Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doomed to a life of pain. (mayo clinic) We actually have been seeing quite a few facial neuralgia patients in the last few months with the same problem. Most of the time they have already tried painkillers, and nothing else has helped and have decided to try acupuncture as a last-ditch effort. To their surprise (and sometimes mine) It’s been working. Some patients originally came in with 10/10 pain. every time the wind would blow or any slight stimulation to the face would send extremely painful electric shocks through the patient’s face. A couple of treatments a two weeks later the pain has calmed down and he was even to the point where he was started applying for jobs again because he wasn’t able to work with the pain previously. It’s always exciting when patients get better! Does everyone get the same result? No. but most people do get some benefit and if we can’t get the pain to go away we can at least manage it and provide a better quality of life for those patients.

If you know anyone suffering from facial/ trigeminal neuralgia tells them to give acupuncture a try! we are accepting new patients!
