Migraine Headaches is a episodic disorder. These headaches affect about 12% more females than males, and affect about 23 million people over the age of 12. Not all the people who suffer from migraines seek medical attention, but those that do will usually consult their family physician and will be referred to a neurologist who specialize in headaches. Believe it or not, 70% to 80% have a family history of migraine headaches. Less than half of all migraine sufferers have received a diagnosis of migraine from their healthcare provider. Migraine is often misdiagnosed as sinus headache or tension-type headache.

There are quite a few factors that can trigger a migraine headache, for instance, if your sleep pattern changes, or you miss a meal, or maybe you are taking a medication that cause swelling of blood vessels. About one-fifth of the people that suffer from migraines experience aura which is a warning that is associated with a migraine just before the headache hits. You may start seeing dots or wavy line about an hour before the onset of a migraine. Some people will have tingling in their arm or face or difficulty speaking. Diagnosis of migraine headache is made by establishing the history of the migraine-related symptoms and other headache characteristics as well as a family history of similar headaches. By definition, the physical examination of a patient with migraine headache in between the attacks of migraine does not reveal any organic causes for the headaches. Tests such as the CT scan and MRI are useful to confirm the lack of organic causes for the headaches.

To date, there are no cure for migraine headaches, just medication, whether prescribed or alternative, and therapy in very extreme cases.
