Migraine needs proper treatment to irradicate from its roots. I can prescribe you medicine only after getting details history of your complaint n whatever treatment uptil now you have taken. Ginger is a home remedy for instant relief. It helps reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, hence easing the pain. And since it stimulates digestion, it also helps quell the nausea which occurs during migraines. 1 SPOON OF CRUSHED GINGER WITH EITHER HONEY OR SUGAR U CAN TAKE. Thank you.

I wanted to know how prevent from migran .causes of migrants and effect on human body.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
You don't need to prevent migraine. If you are already a patient of migraine, you have to take care of following. Stay away from scorching sunlight, donot over exhaust yourself physically, have plenty of oral fluids, avoid fasting, have adequate and regular sleep ,maintain sleep hygiene, learn to relax in times of stress, if stress is unmanageable do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist for stress management. Migraine patients donot cause any physical harm to the body. Most of the side effects may be psychological. Migraine patients are prone for anxiety, depression, irritable mood, impulsivity, insomnias etc.

Migraine and Homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai

Migraine is a complex disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of a headache, most often unilateral and in some cases associated with visual or sensory symptoms collectively known as an aura that arise most often before the head pain but that may occur during or afterward . Migraine is most common in women and has a strong genetic component.

Signs and symptoms

Typical symptoms of migraine include the following:

1.Throbbing or a pulsatile headache, with moderate to severe pain that intensifies with movement or physical activity

2.Unilateral and localized pain in the frontotemporal and ocular area but the pain may be felt anywhere around the head or neck

3.Pain builds up over a period of 1-2 hours, progressing posteriorly and becoming diffuse

4.Headache lasts 4-72 hours

5.Nausea (80%) and vomiting (50%), including anorexia and food intolerance, and light-headedness

6.Sensitivity to light and sound


Features of migraine aura are as follows:

1.May precede or accompany the headache phase or may occur in isolation

2.Usually develops over 5-20 minutes and lasts less than 60 minutes

3.Most commonly visual but can be sensory, motor, or any combination of these

4.Visual symptoms may be positive or negative

5.The most common positive visual phenomenon is the scintillating scotoma, an arc or band of absent vision with a shimmering or glittering zigzag border

Physical findings during a migraine headache may include the following:

*Cranial/cervical muscle tenderness
*Horner syndrome (ie, relative miosis with 1-2 mm of ptosis on the same side as the headache)
*Conjunctival injection
*Tachycardia or bradycardia
**Hypertension or hypotension
*Hemisensory or hemiparetic neurologic deficits (ie, complicated migraine)
*Adie-type pupil (ie, poor light reactivity, with near dissociation from light)

Homoeopathic constitutional treatment cures this malady completely since it goes to the root of the disease and removes this tendency permanently.

Some of Homoeopathic remedies used for treating migraine are Belladonna,Spigelia,Sanguinaria,Glonoine,Natrum mur,Phosphorus, Tuberculinum, Iris versicolor,medicine should be strictly selected based on symptom similarity only to get permanent cure.

*Hypertension

If you are overweight and have hypothyroidism these also need to be tested and if all are normal you may be keeping head over the hand causing a slight decrease in blood flow / pressing the nerve to cause numbness.
