How to Live Migraine Free
If you suffer from chronic migraines, there’s a chance that you’ve tried most everything to get rid of them; changing your diet, getting more exercise, finding ways to relax, and maybe you’ve even tried a few things along the way that you’d never confess to. Whatever you have tried or haven’t tried, Dr. David A. Schlesinger knows just how hard it can be to live with debilitating headaches. Luckily, we have a solution that might be able to help you live a life that’s free of migraines.
What Are Migraines?
Before we dive straight into treatment, it’s important to know what migraines are exactly. A migraine is a type of vascular headache which is caused by a combination of enlarged blood vessels and a release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the vessels. These chemicals are what cause inflammation, pain, and even swelling. When migraine attacks happen, you are not only experiencing these symptoms, but your body is responding to the stress and pain with things like blurred vision or sensitivity to light.
How Can They Be Treated?
In addition to watching what foods you eat, we have seen a lot of success in some of our patients with Botox injections— yes, you read that right. Botox isn’t just a wonder drug for fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, if it’s administered on a regular basis it can help patients, like you, live a life with fewer migraines.
Dealing with chronic migraines can be debilitating. Whether you feel like you’re missing out on work, family life, or just living a life that’s pain-free, we know just how hard it can be to live with regular migraines.
