Migraine presents itself in many ways, but a key migraine indicator is whether headache impacts your ability to function in your daily life.
Has a headache limited your activities any day in the last 3 months?
Are you nauseated or sick to your stomach when you have a headache?
Does light bother you when you have a headache?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, talk with your healthcare provider about how you think you may have migraine.
If you get headaches, you’ll want to hear the rest of this…
Many people think they just have regular headaches, or sinus headaches, or tension headaches. But they actually have migraine. With an accurate diagnosis, you and your healthcare provider could find treatments that may work better for you.
A migraine is much more than just a headache.
An attack can last for hours or even days,
Often with sensitivity to lights and sounds,
Or nausea and vomiting that impact your day.
All of this can interfere with working a job or spending quality time with family.
Thankfully, there are many treatments for migraine. So make an appointment with your healthcare provider to talk about your headaches.
Tell them how many headache days you have each month. Tell them about the other related symptoms and how all of this impacts your life.
Talk about what treatments might be right for you to help stop a migraine attack.
And if migraine impacts your life 4 or more days per month, ask if treatments that can help prevent migraine attacks are right for you.
