Find Relief For Your Migraine Headaches


 I’m Dr. Cliff Griffin and I’ve been helping people with headaches for 25 years, and over the years we have come across 25 different causes for headaches.  There are headaches due to mechanical/spinal problems, some are caused by viruses, there are sinus types, some are due to blood sugar problems.  The migraine headache is perhaps the best known special type of headache.  Migraines are usually accompanied  by symptoms including dizziness, visual problems such as seeing auras around objects, spots or flickering squiggly lines in the eyes, redness, swelling, tearing of the eyes, muscle contraction, irritability, nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea.  People tell me that they notice these symptoms come on almost like a warning sign of the headache coming.  Migraines are usually one-sided but it can be anywhere in the head.  Approximately 28 million Americans suffer from migraines, and millions go without treatment.  At one time scientists thought migraines were caused by abnormally dilated or enlarged blood vessels.  Now, new imaging devices have allowed them to watch brains during migraine attacks, and have discovering that people that are having a migraine attack have abnormally excitable neurons or brain nerve cells.  Researchers have observed a sudden burst of cortical activity that occurs most commonly in the occipital lobes (back part of the brain). The occipital lobe (back part of the brain) will increase in frequency of firing, or have a burst of electrical activity, and then there will be an episode of silence or depressed activity.  The actual activity of the brain becomes depressed when compared to normal.  The resulting pain comes from either the brain stem activation or from blood vessels inflamed by rapidly exchanging blood flow or both. This seems to be the reason for the ACHE in headache.  Cluster headaches are similar but almost feels like a sinus type headache because it starts with intense, throbbing pain arising high in the nostril and spreading to behind the eye on the same side.  Sometimes, the forehead is also affected.  The attacks tend to occur from once to several times daily in clusters lasting weeks, or even months.  Without apparent reason, the cluster subsides as quickly as it began.  The other type of headache we see alot of is the tension headache, these are usually bilateral over all pressure in the head and activity doesn’t effect the person as much as with the other types.
