Hi, I’m Dr Sonia Lal Gupta and I’m a neurologist at M.P Heart Clinic in New Delhi. I specialise in headaches and strokes.

Why headaches, you might ask?

That’s one of the most common problems that people face and the reason why they actually go to the doctor as well. Interestingly though, only one-third of the people actually get treatment for their headache. So when it comes to a headache, one of the most common types of headaches is called Migraine and a lot of people suffer from this migraine for years and years and years without realising that what they have is actually migraine, for which they can get treatment and they can feel better.

So what exactly is a migraine?

A migraine is, typically, a unilateral, a one sided, or a headache that happens on both the sides. It’s a thumping headache. People usually say that they feel a pounding pain. It is usually accompanied by nausea, light sensitivity – you do not like how the light makes you feel, noise sensitivity – even noise bothers you, and all you want to do is sit in a dark room and sleep.

So when it comes to a migraine, what are the different phases of it?

When there is a prodrome phase where you kind of start knowing the migraine is going to come on. You might feel very tired, very irritable. Then after that is the aura phase which not many people have. But some people describe flashing lights or some numbness in the hands. Followed by the headache phase which can last anywhere from four hours to seventy-two hours. Then after the pain goes away, there is a phase called the postdrome phase where you can actually feel exhausted and tired up to twenty-four hours even after a headache has gone away. So think about it, it can take up to at least two to three days at times for you to recover from one single migraine.

There are a lot of triggers of a migraine you can now about which includes lack of sleep, hunger, stress. Food triggers like red wine, chocolate, and many other triggers depending from person to person. But to know more about what you should do, you should talk to your doctor that you have a migraine.

You can always contact me on Lybrate or you can call us our M.P Heart Clinic number which is on the Lybrate website, to meet me and we can help get your migraines under control.

Thank you

Hello lybrate-user, you seem to be suffering from migraines with aura. Vasograin is a medicine to help only when you have the pain and should not be taken more than 2-3 times a week maximum. If the frequency of your headaches is more than 4 times a month, you need to be on a daily preventive medicine. When the preventive medicine is taken for 2-3 months, the headache frequency decreases. Also lifestyle changes as proper sleep, eating meals on time, meditation and regular exercise- all help in decreasing frequency of migraines.

Actually I want to ask my dad's health issue, As doctor he is attacked with the paralysis stroke but today I found my dad is totally unconscious and continuous saliva draining from his mouth and making a sound like snoozing. Please guide me what may be the problem?

It seems like he might have a seizure which can be seen after someone has a stroke. Please take him to the hospital asap and have him examined so he can be put on the appropriate medicine. He would also need to get an EEG to rule out seizures.

I'm having pain and headache only on right side of my head. I have searched on internet and found there is no permanent cure but there are chances to decrease the frequency of occurrence of pain. So can you guide me how to decrease the pain and even decrease the frequency of occurrence of pain.

Dear lybrate-user, There are different types of headaches and treatment can be different accordingly. If your headaches are accompanied by nausea (feeling of vomiting), light or noise sensitivity, then the headache you have is a migraine. If the frequency of these headaches is more than 4 times a month, preventive medications can be used to help reduce the frequency. Apart from medications, meditation (especially mindfulness meditation), when practiced regularly, also helps decrease the headache frequency. Proper sleep, eating meals on time, exercising regularly - all also help decrease the frequency. You can also keep a headache diary for a month (plenty of apps are also available)- this can help you identify your triggers and help avoid them.

A healthy diet and regular exercise is important when someone is trying to concieve. Weekly fasts should not be a problem as long as you are consuming regular meals (even in the form of milk and fruits) through out the day. Make sure you add regular gentle exercise like walking to your routine and practice mediation as that helps decrease the stress levels increasing the chances of conceiving. All the best!
