>>Smthing interesting about migraine


A migraine headache is a form
of vascular headache. Migraine
... headache is caused by
vasodilatation (enlargement
of blood vessels) that causes
the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around
the large arteries of the brain.
Enlargement of these blood
vessels stretches the nerves
that coil around them and
causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause
inflammation, pain, and
further enlargement of the
artery. The increasing
enlargement of the arteries
magnifies the pain.

How are migraine
headaches treated?

¤Using ice, biofeedback, and
relaxation techniques may be
helpful in stopping an attack
once it has started.

¤Sleep may be the best medicine if it is possible.


acetaminophen (Tylenol),non-steroidal anti-
inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),Aspirin

>>>>>NOTE:Children and teenagers should
not use aspirin for the
treatment of headaches, other
pain, or fever, because of the
risk of developing Reye's Syndrome , a life-threatening neurological disease that can
lead to coma and even death.
