If you're a migraine or headache sufferer, we don't need to tell you how disruptive and inconvenient they are. Often provoked by stress or a change of routine, they not only affect you, but also your family and friends. Many sufferers worry about the impact on their work and find themselves avoiding social occasions for fear of an attack.
Diagnosis of migraine can be complex, with no two people experiencing identical symptoms. Some get an aura (a visual disturbance), whilst others are nauseous or sick. There can be other symptoms such as numbness or loss speech. By the time they seek our help, many of our clients have seen neurologists, had scans and been taking medication for years. Often medication, which was once effective, can lose its benefit and episodes of migraine become more frequent and aggressive over time, resulting in an increasing disruption to your life.
