Migraine pain management

Migraine Headache


Migraine is a complex Common Neurological disease that has been identified as the leading cause of Years Lived with Disability in people under the age of 50 years. World Health Organization(WHO) asserted migraine is the third most common disease in the world, and second leading cause of healthy life lost due to disability (YLD) affecting approximately 1 in 7 people - directly impacts more than 1 billion people worldwide.

Migraine disease has a substantial impact on individuals and society, resulting in significant disability, lost productivity, and increased healthcare expenditure.

Migraine affects three times more women than men; however, it can be equally disabling in both genders. Migraine often starts at puberty and mostly affects adults in their productive years, but it can also be present in children and the elderly. Chronic migraine affects approximately 2% of the world population. Migraine and chronic headache is found to be the second most frequently identified cause of short-term absence for non-manual employees, and amongst the five leading causes of emergency department visits.

Migraine headaches are typically unilateral and pulsating in nature, and are often accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Some individuals may also experience an aura, which is a visual disturbance that can occur before or during a migraine headache. The aura can include flashing lights, blind spots, and other visual symptoms.

Effective management of migraine headache requires a comprehensive approach that includes patient education, lifestyle modifications, acute and preventive medications, and careful monitoring of symptoms.
