Do you suffer from recurrent sinus or tension headaches and wonder if they are migraines? Do your headaches result in one or more of the following symptoms?
- Visual disturbances
- Sinus pain
- Light and sound sensitivity
- Throbbing head pain
Migraines are a total body experience. They start as a wave of depressed brain activity and end with dilation of the blood vessels in the meninges and pain signals from the brain stem. But there is a threshold that is reached before this process begins.
In this video series, Dr. Lisa Lilienfield will explain how these headaches could be related to and part of a process in the brain leading to the “perfect storm” that we call migraine. Dr. Lisa will explore the multiple triggers, and modes of prevention and treatment including medications, supplements, diet, and lifestyle changes that will keep us from crossing that threshold. She will also explore other treatable conditions that may contribute to migraines, such as mold or heavy metal toxicity, Lyme disease, temporomandibular joint syndrome, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and nerve irritation from injury or arthritis of the neck.
