Migraines may cause pain severe enough to be incapacitating. They’re often accompanied by other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, light sensitivity, sensitivity to sound, and more. At ER QuickCare in Naples, Florida, the medical care team is made up of highly experienced emergency care physicians who know how to deal with migraines quickly and efficiently to give patients the pain relief they need.
Migraines are a specific kind of headache, one that generally is considered the most serious and painful of all headaches. Migraine headaches typically cause major pain and frequently have other symptoms as well. When people have a migraine, they may have symptoms that are bad enough to keep them from daily activities. This results in time missed from work, inability to spend time with family and friends, and other negative changes to a patient’s quality of life.
Migraines may be very frequent for some people, while they’re quite rare for others. While the symptoms are challenging, there are solutions available. The team at ER QuickCare can help patients deal with migraines, whether they’re in the throes of a migraine or simply want to prevent future migraines.
An aura is a sensory or visual disturbance that precedes a migraine. Not all people who suffer from migraines experience auras. Auras usually start an hour or less prior to the migraine. Auras can include blinking or flashing light patterns, black spots in the field of vision, or tingling in the face or hands. Auras can serve as a warning system for migraines. If people experience an aura, it’s best to come in to ER QuickCare immediately. This early response can prevent the migraine from growing out of control.
The symptoms of a migraine may include any or all of the following.
Neck pain may appear to be unconnected to migraines, but it’s actually a common migraine symptom. In fact, problems with the neck joints, muscles, or nerves potentially can be the root cause of the migraine in some cases. Vertebrae issues such as misalignment often are connected to migraines.
At ER QuickCare, symptoms are managed quickly and efficiently. Treatment may include oral medication and IV medication, delivered right in the ER QuickCare facility. People also can begin preventive migraine treatment to help reduce the pain level, the duration, and frequency of migraines.
