Migraine ! to hell with it !!

Since this is my first valid blog, let me start with something that has always been in my brain for few years now... :)

Topic : MIGRAINE

A short description : Migraine sucks !!!

Brief description : It is a one-sided headache accompanied by throbbing pain. One cannot sleep / talk / watch TV or do anything other than simply sitting in a chair or walking. Severe attacks will lead to vomitting / shivering etc etc

Technical description : Low serotonin and norepinephrine levels in the brain

What causes migraine : There are many many symptoms for it. Most common is tension.

Others triggers are
-exposure to direct sunlight for a longtime (exactly in my case)
-too much sweating
-going restless / getting nervous
-taking too much caffine content
-food allergions
-protein deficiencies
-dehydration etc
This is a very huge list and always varies case-2-case.

Symptons : well, u will know that ur day is gonna get royally screwd up when u get up from ur bed.

Blog :
This has been giving me problems for the past almost 3 to 4 yrs. Before that i never had one-sided headaches. My close friend Rajakumar also is suffering from this for some years now.

So, in a hunt to get a permanent solution to this, we relied on Homeopath treatment and were ready to travel 20 kms to C.V.Raman Nagar (DRDO colony to be precise). After some initial hiccups, we found the place and i only felt if whole of bangalore is maintained like the DRDO campus, one will never get Migraine.
The campus was amazingly silent and was very very clean. Everything starting from tennis courts to shopping complexes were right inside the campus. It was a self-sufficient township.

Coming back, the clinic captioned "Health for all" offers a voluntary service and medication was completely based on what kind of a person you are. Many questions are posted to you to analyze ur body conditon before suggesting medicines. This reallly impressed me. Infact,myself and my friend got a completely different set of medication.

Its been 10 days since we both are taking this treatment and already i am realizing some effects of it. Migraine stuck once but was cured with a homeopathy medicine insted of saridon which was tilldate my life-saver during such attacks. I have 1 more month to complete my initial medication. I have to wait and watch :)

Thru this blog, i pray for entire migraine-sufferers community !!!

@skm,
i really hate to say but we were not punctual with the homeopathy treatment. i did see some relief with the treatment but since i was not punctual (last september i had to came to US for a month and totally missed the medication schedule) :((((

so, even now, problem is still there. once a month atleast... r u aware of some real good treatments? my parents dont have this. so, for me its not hereditary...

i have to take saridon when it attacks. no other go, just no other go.. :(
pls give some inputs if u have

No treatments they say here too.
They say that the minute you feel it is going to attack, you take advil/tylanol and take rest in a dark silent room and realx.Try avoid doing/taking the thing that triggers your headache.
But for my son, he is suffering from it from age 4.It became so severe this year.They took ct scan,but the treatment is same.He is allergic like his mom for the change of weather,bright Sun, pollen and to strong scents.Even yesterday with all the enthu he wore that costume for an hour, thats it,got a headache,red watery eyes,so have to give him medicine, made him to sleep in a dark room for 2 hours,so that he will be able to go for trick or treat. andha vayasula yellamae pannanum.
Thanks for the immediate reply.I like it.Thanks--SKM

இதை அனுபவித்ததில்லை.. ஆனால், கிட்ட நின்னு பார்த்திருக்கிறேன்.. என்னுடைய நிறைய நண்பர்களுக்கு மைகிரேன் இருக்கு. அவர்கள் வலியில் துடிக்கும் போதெல்லாம் அவர்கள் சாப்பிட அந்த மருந்து (அதான் பால் மாதிரி இருக்குமே!), அதை தேடி அழைந்து வாங்கி கொடுத்திருக்கிறேன்.
