​What Does A Migraine Attack Feel Like?

Headaches and migraines manifest as pains and pressure in the head region.

But, in addition to the pain in the head, migraines are accompanied by many other physical conditions that can be felt all over the body. 

Below is a list of what a migraine attack feels like.

Excruciating pain in the head. Migraines have a higher intensity. Sufferers of migraines liken the pain to having a hot iron pressed against the side of your head.

Light sensitivity. Many migraine sufferers report feeling a piercing pain around their eyes especially when they’re around lights.

Momentary loss of vision. Migraine can also cause a momentary loss of vision in one or both eyes. Exposure to light worsens the pain of some migraine sufferers. 

Nausea. Migraine pain can be so intense that it can cause nausea and vomiting to the sufferer. A growing body of research suggests that migraine-induced nausea and vomiting can be linked to inflammation of some tissues in the inner ear.

Inability to function. While it is possible to carry out some functions when you have a headache, the pain that comes with migraines can be debilitating.

Some people who suffer from migraines have described the pain as distracting and prevent them from carrying out their normal functions.

Migraines and Chiropractic Care

Many studies show that migraines originate from problems with the neurovascular system which interferes with the organs around the neck and head. 

Upper cervical chiropractic care can bring lasting relief from migraines by addressing the root causes of the ailment.
