Migraines

 

In essence, Migraines are extremely severe headaches. Some people that suffer from migraines may feel the symptoms of the upcoming migraine a day or two in advance. There are several theories on the causes of Migraines. Once school of thought is that a “Storm” of misfiring neuronal activity occurring in the occipital lobe which in turn induces the migraine.

Another theory is that migraines occur due to enlargements of certain blood vessels and the chemicals released by fibers that are coiled near these blood vessels. The theory we operate under focuses on the rapidly repeated increase & decrease of serotonin in the prefrontal cortex. By regulating the amount of serotonin in the brain, we avoid having the spikes & drops which in turn may completely circumvent the migraine altogether.

 

Some of the symptoms included but aren’t limited to; being cranky, full of energy, restless or nervous, sleepy, or crave certain foods. About 1/3 of the population of migraine victims experience an aura approximately 30 minutes prior to the migraine. Auras usually affect the person’s vision, they’ll see spots, wavy lines, or even flashing lights. Aura’s can also be numbness or feeling pins and needles in the person’s hands, arms, and or legs.

Typically we prefer to treat migraine patients prior to the onset, preventative in nature. Research indicates that patients who are experiencing an active migraine may be alleviated from their migraine within 2 hours with TMS Therapy. Each treatment session will last approximately 30 minutes with no long term side effects.
