What is an Aura?
The manifestation of neurological symptoms that occur before a migraine headache are called auras. Nearly about 20 to 25% people experience aura with migraine. The typical characteristics of aura include appearance of blind spots in one or both the eyes; dots; jagged or wavy lines; feeling of strange odours, taste and touch; disruptions in smell, auditory hallucinations or visual hallucinations; experiencing tunnel vision, flashing lights; numbness in the hands, difficulty recalling words or speaking correct words and pins and needles sensations. These neurological symptoms may continue for around 45 to 60 minutes and more, and then gradually diminishes once the headache begins.
What are the different types of migraine with aura?
• Retinal migraine • Hemiplegic migraine • Migraine with brainstem aura • Migraine with typical aura
Are headaches hereditary?
Millions of people suffer from headache throughout the world and majority of those have a family history of migraine. According to migraine specialists and several neurologists, nearly about 80% of the people with migraine reported to have a family history of migraine. However, scientists are not sure whether it is a family predisposition or genetic cause which is responsible for migraines in such people. Whatever may be the case, the chances of getting migraine in a child are about 50% if one parent suffers and 75% if both the parents suffer.
Does Weather affect Migraine?
The list of factors affecting migraines is quite extensive, but it differs from individual to individual. In some individuals changes in weather and climatic conditions can trigger a migraine attack. For instance, extreme cold, hot and humid conditions, bright sunlight, extreme hot, cool breeze and drastic changes in atmospheric pressure can all lead to migraines in some individuals. However, weather is not a common factor or migraine trigger for all. It does show its effect in only a few individuals.
Can children get headache?
Yes, children do get headaches and migraines by the time they reach high school. If a child suffers from headaches, taking him or her to a pediatric neurologist will help understand the cause and the type of headache. There are several safe approaches available along with many medicines for managing and preventing headaches in children.
What is the link between migraine and hormones?
Hormones play quite an important role in initiating and regulating many bodily functions and thus help in maintaining body’s balance with constantly changing environment. Disturbance in normal hormonal balance in the body in conditions such as stress, depression, menopause, pregnancy and menstruation can lead to headaches and migraines. In majority of the women, episodes of migraines have been reported during menstrual cycle. These are related to hormonal imbalances.
