Understanding Complex Migraines in Victoria BC

MIgraines, Headache, Headaches, MigrainesComplex Migraine

A migraine can be complex. No one knows that better than people who suffer from them. They may suffer from blurriness, nausea, and aura that is an indication of the coming pain. Though, there are those who suffer from complex, which includes all of the above symptoms and more.

In some case, a person who suffers from this type of neurological abnormality may lose their vision, deal with fatigue and weakness, be unable to speak, or they may speak gibberish. The symptoms of complex migraine may also mimic that of a stroke, leading some people to believe that it is such.

Complex Migraine Causes

Now, you’re probably wondering what the cause of this type of migraine is. Well, no one is quite sure what the underlying cause of them is, but one theory is that they are hereditary. Scientists identified three genes that are unique to people who suffer from complex migraines.

Now, the good news is that very few people who suffer from migraines suffer from complex migraines. The even better news is that people who suffer from this type of neurological abnormality have had positive results under the care of upper cervical chiropractors.

That’s because many times people who suffer from this type of migraine, or any other type, have a history of head and neck injuries. The pain due to that accident you suffered a few weeks, months, or even years ago may not manifest itself right away, but it most likely will. That’s because that accident most likely cause the top two bones in your spine to be knocked out of alignment, and it only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter of those two bones to hinder the brain’s ability to communicate with the body. Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on aligning those two bones, so as to restore the brain’s ability to communicate with the body.
