Migraines and chronic headaches

Migraine is something that most people encounter at various points in their lives, regardless of gender or age.

In addition to being one of the symptoms of a number of pathologies, migraines can also cause the development of independent diseases.

The cause of migraines is not always obvious.

There are 2 types of headaches:

Primary headache, when it is not associated with any other condition. It occurs when there is an increase in hyperactivity in areas with increased pain sensitivity in the head.

Secondary headaches can result from many illnesses, such as maxillary sinusitis, stroke, infections, sinusitis, etc.

There are short term and long term chronic daily migraines. Migraines that last more than four hours are considered long-lasting. These include:

  • Chronic migraine.
  • Chronic GBN (tension headache)
  • Daily persistent headaches
  • Prolonged hemicrania

Factors that accompany the occurrence of frequent migraines :

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Obesity
  • Snoring
  • Excessive use of caffeine
  • Excessive use of medications for headaches
  • Other chronic conditions associated with pain.

The diagnosis of chronic headache is based mostly on the patient’s complaints. The physical examination of the patient by the doctor usually shows nothing unusual; however, in this case a neurological examination is necessary to rule out other causes of chronic migraines.

Other causes of migraines may be pressure, cluster headaches, stroke, tumors, inflammatory blood vessel abnormalities, and cortical infections (meningitis) or sinusitis.

Recommended tests :

  • Blood tests
  • Radiography
  • A CT or MRI scan of the head to check for bleeding, stroke, or tumors
  • MRI scan of the cervical spine
  • Food intolerance test
  • Spinal tap (lumbar puncture) to look for infection or bleeding.

To find the cause of chronic migraines, we suggest the first step is a complete blood and urine Biocheck test. This advanced analysis focuses on examining the pathological disorder associated with the diseases of modern society. Timely diagnostics of metabolic imbalance in its early stages, before the onset of any disease, will allow for timely and effective measures for the prevention of disease. Our diagnostics in addition to everything else includes analysis for heavy metals. Their excessive levels may be one of the causes of chronic migraines.

The easiest and most obvious methods recommended for treating chronic headaches are rest and analgesics. Common pain medications are sold in drugstores. In addition to these, doctors may prescribe prophylactic treatments.

If the level of heavy metals in the organism is exceeded (which unfortunately happens very often among big city residents due to bad ecology), and this, as mentioned above, may cause migraines, in this case our medical center can offer you a complex therapy, which includes an extraction of heavy metals from the body, and replenishment of missing microelements, vitamins, etc.

In addition to the aforementioned treatments, there are a number of alternatives, such as :

  • Mesotherapy for pain management (this is a unique technique practiced by a doctor at our medical center)
  • Acupuncture
  • Manual therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Herbs

There are also a number of things you can do in your daily life to relieve headaches:

  • Apply a warming pack or vice versa with an ice pack to the head or neck area
  • Avoiding stressful situations
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Regular physical activity.
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep regularly.
  • Take a hot shower

Biocheckup blood and urine analysis

The biocheckup is a precocious diagnosis program focusing on the physiopathological imbalance associated with society illnesses. The precocious diagnosis of the metabolism imbalance at an early stage, before the appearance of an illness, pushes you to take adapted measures that can have a reversible effect on the development of the illness.
