Suggest treatment for migraine - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
How can I help you?
Friend of mine used to have it very often, but today she had it three time continously
even during sleep
These are called cluster migraines
which aparantly continued for 12 hour
what medications does she take for migraines
but this was the first time it happened like this
earlier it used to be once and used to get over by 3-4 hours.. starting by bluring of vision
Ok. Well in such cases. I would recommend she take some medication
Is there is need for proper treatment or these are some hormonal/metabolic changes?
The only other therapy that can helps to a lottle extent is ixygen therapy where she has to breath 4 litres of O2 for a few hours
but the meds are better
Migraines are not well known as to the cause. We believe that they are metabolic changes in the brain
unfortunately is just not well known
Do medics provide relaxment at that time/cure to migraines?
it takes some time. but they eventually handle the headache
problem is that they have their own side effects and the person may have excessive fatigue or pins and needle sensations
To establish proper therapy you MUST go to a neurologist
She hd already visited a neurologist, but the doctor said that they could just control the headache, but not the cause..only way to stop it was to prevent the trigger "if we know of it"
Is there any way to reduce it?
I disagree with that assesment
well if you know the trigger there is nothing like it. But if you don't there is really no way of controlling on your own
true.. I agree with your point
Are you located in Bangalore?
Sorry, but I believe you are a neurologist?
I am, but no i no longer practice in XXXXXXX

Ok.. Can you help us with contact details of good neurologist in Blore?
