Is there another way to treat migraine?

POUNDING HEAD: Migraine is notoriously difficult to treat.

MIGRAINES are notoriously difficult to treat. They often don’t respond very well to medication or the medication itself can have unwanted side-effects. And you usually know they’re coming…

Migraines with aura

Some people experience symptoms before an attack called an aura:
• Flashing lights, zigzag patterns or blind spots in your vision
• Stiffness, a tingling sensation or pins and needles in your neck or shoulders
• Feeling disoriented or off balance
• Difficulty speaking
• Poor concentration.

At this point you probably reach for your medication, resigned to staying in a darkened room for the next one to three days.

Is there another way?

For some sufferers, yes, there is. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) in the UK which determines which treatments the NHS can offer has, since 2013, offered Pulsed Magnetic Treatment for migraine sufferers.

In the clinical trials 40 per cent of migraine patients who were treated were found to be migraine free just two hours after treatment.

They were still migraine free 24 hours later. Seventy-five per cent of patients who received a course of treatment had a marked reduction in frequency and severity of treatment and required less medication.
