Causes Behind Migraine

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi

A migraine is a headache that causes a distinct pulsating pain, usually in one side of the head. It is different from normal headaches in the sense that the pain is much more intense and it may be accompanied by nausea or vomiting as well. Some patients have also complained about light sensitivity while others have also complained about pain in all areas of the head.

Some of the factors that separate a migraine from a normal headache are as follows:
While a headache may last at best a day, migraines may last longer, sometimes even up to 3 days.

  1. Feelings of nausea or actual vomiting
  2. Sensitivity to light
  3. Extreme sensitivity to changes in sound

Causes behind migraine
Some of the common and known causes, which may trigger migraines in people are:

  1. Hormonal changes in the body that may have adverse effects
  2. Dehydration is also known to trigger migraines
  3. Patients with hypoglycemia may also face migraines if the blood sugar level drops within their body
  4. 4 Change in air pressure due to change in altitude may also cause migraines to appear
  5. Lack of sleep
  6. Stress
  7. Lifestyle issues such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

Homeopathic Approach

The role of Homeopathy is to break the recurrence of the headaches and cure them completely.

For which we need to understand what allopathic pain killers do and what constitutional Homeopathic treatment do

With Constitutional Homeopathic Treatment  the frequency, intensity and duration of migraine attacks goes down and the things which generally are able to precipitate migraine , if are not able to, then only it can be claimed to be cured.

The role of pain killers and antacids are basically to tide over the acute phase or provide comfort for the time being.

That is why the coming together of Allopathy, to control acute attack and Homeopathy, to cure it completely, will prove to be a new form of synthesis which will be a  boon for the society.

Hi, sudden increase of creatinin in blood may be due to 1. Rhabdomyolysis-may occur due to crush injuries after accidents. In this damaged skeletal striated muscle breaks down rapidly. Breakdown products of damaged muscle cells are released into the bloodstream; some of these, such as the protein myoglobin, are harmful to the kidneys and may lead to kidney failure. The severity of the symptoms, which may include muscle pains, vomiting, and confusion, depends on the extent of muscle damage and whether kidney failure develops. The muscle damage may be caused by physical factors (e. G. Crush injury, strenuous exercise, medications, drug abuse, infections.) 2. Some kinds of antibiotics or blood pressure medicines will cause. Normally, it's totally reversible when you reduce or stop taking these medicines, 3. Diet-. Fox example, pickles, bacons, sausages pizzas and so on are all of high quality of salt, which will cause water-sodium retention in the kidneys 4. Infections-, who have renal insufficiency previously, get infections, such as cold, pneumonia, intestinal infection, and urinary tract infection, they are easy to have an elevated creatinine level in a short time. 5. Dehydration-drinking less water, a fever or sweating, especially during frequent urine, can cause severer narrowed blood volume in kidneys.
