There can be no better way to say goodbye than by way of a migraine.
Even though the disease we called migraine has now been totally eradicated from the public eye pain sufferers can still feel it. And worryingly as a 2005 study conducted in Denmark reported more than a third of the population suffers from a headache every 4 years. In Norway less than 1 percent people suffer from a migraine every year providing enough for such analysis.
Is it (…) time to link up?
The good news is that for some patients the symptoms may be challenging to ignore.
In 2017 a quarter of the study participants reported headaches on a daily basis in the past 30 days as compared to just a third of those who did not experience migraines. On the other hand among those who did experience headache almost one-third reported having migraine symptoms every month as compared with only about one percent in the control groups.
The findings support the idea that the combination of neurological and psychiatric treatment may help to ward off migraine pain entirely. However more research is needed the results of which are still under review.
Frequent intake of alcohol and saturated fats are considered beneficial for migraine pain.
But many who suffer from migraines are unaware of this and the problem becomes more common for those who consume too much saturated fat which is rich in unsaturated fats. This may lead them to ignore the warning signs of health risks associated with this by failing to cope with their migraine attacks.
Drugs and therapies developed to treat migraine pain arent likely to be good for veterans. Patients and their physicians ought to start getting a second look at the support drugs currently approved for migraine pain particularly those offered by leading insurance companies such as Mylan Janssen and Rituximab.
Simone Pitti a neurologist at the University Hospital of Southern Italy who co-sponsored a study on the topic says that a drug-free lifestyle as a means of treatment may be an effective option for some people.
Older people may be able to take advantage of the decline in brain biological function and the accumulation of excess chemicals over time as a way to keep their symptoms short he reports adding that this feature presents a unique possibility.
But other methods to manage migraine pain are more counter-intuitively appealing he argues. Novel therapies which aim to help replace lost brain cells and disable inflammation are likely to offer the most promise as they would be more effective and more plausible given the more desirable goal of a healthy and functional brain.
