Migraines - What type do you have?

When most people hear the word migraine, they think of a severe, very painful headache. What they may not know is that there are many different types of migraines, all having different symptoms. So how do you know which one you suffer from?

Let’s breakdown a few of the most common types of migraines.

Migraine without Aura

Migraine without aura is the most common type of migraine, and often is associated with a woman's menstrual cycle. Typically, people with this type of migraine have more frequent attacks and migraine attacks are more disabling than those who have migraine with aura. The symptoms range from pulsing or throbbing pain on one side of the head, pain that is worsened by physical activity, along with nausea and vomiting.

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches are one of the most severe types of pain that a human can experience. With cluster headaches, you may feel a burning pain around and above your eyes, at your temples, and even moving toward the back of your head. You’ll often also get red or swollen eyes, among other symptoms. Because they occur in such a large area and may provoke other symptoms, cluster headaches can be the most irritating type headache experienced and most suffered by men.

Hemiplegic Migraine

If you have ever had a migraine that felt more like a stroke, it could possibly be a Hemiplegic Migraine. Those who experience this type of migraine develop weakness on one side of the body, often with visual aura symptoms and a “pins and needles” sensation on one side of the body. It can last for as little as a few hours to several days. Similar to typical aura without headache, Hemiplegic Migraine doesn’t always include the severe head pain.

There are over 9 common migraines, these three being the most common experienced. Whether you suffer from Cluster Headaches, a Hemiplegic Migraine or the most common, Migraine without Aura - Migraine Miracle is here to help!

Migraine Miracle uses Cold Stone Therapy and Aromatherapy to reduce, if not eliminate Migraines all-together. The inhalation of essential oils stimulates the brain’s limbic system. As a result, the brain releases chemicals, causing you to feel better. Performing specific pressure point massage in conjunction with aromatherapy may result in relaxation and have a calming effect.
