As you may know, migraines can last for hours and even several days at a time. In most instances, these episodes are characterized by sharp, throbbing headaches, and a range of other symptoms including vomiting, sensitivity to light and lack of energy. In fact, stress is another consequence of migraines and this is especially true over a sustained period.
Although there are many variations of migraines and headaches, there is no proven cure and most people avail of over the counter medications to treat the problem. However, herein is one of the problems with modern treatment, for recent studies show that 73% migraine patients use far too many acute medications on a daily basis.
At the same time, severe headaches and migraines do not need to be chronic to require treatment. After all, even a single migraine is known to dramatically reduce a person’s productivity or efficiency while the stress involved is uncomfortable, to say the least. With this in mind, anyone who suffers from regular headaches or migraines should seek specialist treatment and as already mentioned, acupuncture is widely regarded as the most effective treatment available.
