What Are The Common Migraine Symptoms?

An acute migraine attack or chronic migraine has similar symptoms. Both groups of people with migraine headaches complain of throbbing pain at the side of the head. A throbbing headache is ranked as the most common migraine symptom. In addition, pulsing sensations are also familiar in people with migraines. Other common migraine symptoms include:

  • Nausea & vomiting 
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to sound or loud noises
  • Loss of vision
  • Head pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye pain
  • Ringing in ears
  • Chest palpitations
  • Visual disturbance

Why Do I Get Migraines?

The exact cause of why people get migraines is still unknown. Here are the most common causes of a migraine attack:

  • Neck problems (misalignments in the upper neck (near skulls’ base involving the occiput, C1 & C2)
  • Spondylosis or slipped discs)
  • Jaw problems (TMD or retromandibular joint dysfunction)
  • Chemical imbalance
  • Blood vessel issues & hormonal changes
  • Dietary causes & allergic reaction
  • Nerve compression
  • Stress & anxiety
  • Menstrual cycle & menstrual cramps
  • Increased or aggressive physical activity

Migraine sufferers related to chemical imbalances, allergies, or dietary issues often have no other symptoms such as neck pain, jaw pain, or tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

The Correlation Between Jaw Problems, Spondylosis & Migraine

The most common migraine trigger happens to be the neck, followed by the jaw. A 2018 survey discovered that 68% of migraines superusers had neck issues. Aside from the neck being a common migraine trigger, jaw issues have also been documented as a culprit in triggering acute migraine attacks.

The jaws of the neck are common causes of both chronic migraines and acute migraine attacks, according to a published report on retrospective analysis of 1198 patients. The authors recommended clinical assessments of integrative therapy approaches of the jaws and neck in each and migraine sufferer. They reported that people with migraine tend to have cervical and TMJ related issues which need conservative care. 

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health published a cohort study from 200 to 20011 with over 27,000 cases of cervical spondylosis (degenerative changes in the spine that compress nerves) compared to over 110,000 participants that didn’t have cervical spondylosis. The authors reported a significant correlation between cervical spondylosis and migraine pain.

What Are The Phases During A Migraine Attack

Migraine attacks occur in phases or stages; prodrome, aura, headache, and postdrome. It is common to experience only 1 or 2 phases. However, those with an acutely severe attack may experience all four stages.

Prodrome Phase Or The Pre Attack Stage Of A Migraine Attack

The prodromal phase or stage is related to the time between the appearance of initial symptoms and the full migraine development. It is the first phase where initial symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to light, dizziness, sensitivity to noise and loud sounds, fatigue, difficulty with concentration (mental fogginess). The prodromal phase can last 24-48 hours. It’s important to know that you can get a migraine without ever experiencing the prodromal stage or prodrome symptoms.

The Aura Phase Of A Migraine Attack

One-third of migraine patients experience a migraine aura. Similar to the prodrome stage, not all migraine sufferers will experience it. Those affected by aura may experience blurred vision, see flashing lights, notice blind spots, or endure a temporary loss of sight (vision). The aura stage can last from minutes to one hour. In some, it can last longer than an hour. They often occur before the headache phase, but some experience aura after the headaches have started.

Headache Phase Of A Margarine Attack

This is the primary migraine phase or stage characterized by head pain on one side or both sides. In some, the head pain starts on one side and then shifts over to the other side. Also, it can cause head pain on both sides simultaneously. In this stage, a throbbing-like head pain that many described a pressing or tightening head pain. The throbbing headache often worsens by head and neck moment. In a severely acute attack, any movement will increase the headache’s intensity. The headache phase of migraine typically lasts from hours to several days.

Postdrome Phase Or The Migraine Hangover Stage

Published studies report a 79% rate of migraine patients. In other words, there’s a chance that you may not experience it. Those who endure a migraine hangover (prodromal stage) report body aches, fatigue, concentration issues, sensitivity to light, sound, noise & smells. Those who go through the postdrome phase are still classified as having an active migraine.

According to another published study, it can last from minutes up to hours and even extend into the next day. Those who experience it may find faster recovery if they practice avoidance of personal triggers, start some relaxation techniques (breathing and other methods we mentioned in the prevention strategies section below. In addition, increasing your fluid intake should also help, but don’t go overboard by drinking more than three liters.

Menstrual Cycle, Menstrual Cramps, Prenatal & Postpartum Causes Of Migraines

Headaches and migraines are more common in women. Female migraine sufferers report increased headache and migraine attacks during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy & at post-partum, or after pregnancy. Increased incidence of headaches and migraine attacks during these times are the direct results in hormonal functions.
What Is A Menstrual Migraine & Hormonal Headaches?

Hormones are our body’s messengers that are present in tissues, organs, and blood. Progesterone & estrogen are hormones that start during puberty. Menstrual migraines are hormonal headaches related to estrogen and progesterone levels.

Progesterone is the hormone that thickens the uterus lining after ovulation. Progesterone’s primary function is to prepare the uterus for pregnancy, but it also helps regulate the menstrual cycle. It maintains and prepares the uterus for the attachment of a fertilized egg. However, if the egg didn’t get fertilized, progesterone levels drop, and the menstrual cycle starts. Estrogen develops female physical features, controls the menstrual cycle, and protects organs, including the heart, skin, and bones. Estrogen levels dramatically increase in the middle of your menstrual cycle and drop during menstruation.

Menstrual migraines and menstrual headaches are expected during menstruation when the progesterone and estrogen levels drop to the lowest levels. In pregnancy, estrogen and progesterone levels increase, but many complain of increased migraines during pregnancy.

Pregnancy Migraines Or Prenatal & Postnatal Headaches

Pregnancy headaches are not uncommon. Expecting mothers report increased headaches and migraines during the first trimester. Conversely, or in opposition to the menstrual migraines where a drop in estrogen & progesterone caused the headaches, prenatal migraines occur during higher levels of estrogen and progesterone. Therefore, the cause of pregnancy headaches or migraines is not related to the sex hormones (progesterone & estrogen) but linked to pregnancy and delivery hormone (Relaxin).

The ovaries and the placenta produce relaxin hormones. Relaxin levels stay elevated during pregnancy, reaching the highest levels during the first trimester and again weeks before delivery. It rises during the second have of a menstrual cycle to prepare the uterus for pregnancy. During the last trimester of pregnancy or near the end of pregnancy, the Relaxin hormone elevates again to prepare the mothers’ body for childbirth and delivery. It softens tissues, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Relaxin hormone stays elevated for 6-8 months after the delivery (post-partum).

Headaches & migraines are common in prenatal and postnatal periods due to the softening or relaxing impact of the Relaxin hormone on the joints at the base of the skulls, upper neck, and jaws.

Therefore, mothers who experience increased headaches or migraines should consider prenatal and postnatal chiropractic combined with physiotherapy for optimal health. CSC has been providing prenatal and postnatal chiropractic combined with physiotherapy for 15-years in Kuala Lumpur. Contact us today to learn more about your options.
