Migraine headaches can be especially debilitating, often causing nausea, vomiting and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. For some people, they are so bad they can’t even function normally during a migraine episode. If you suffer from migraines, you know how important it is to find a treatment that works fast and effectively. In this blog post, IV Vitamin Therapy discusses the benefits of our Relax | Migraine & Headache IV infusion therapy for treating migraines.
Migraine VS Headache
If you frequently get migraines, you certainly know the difference compared to a headache. If you are unsure whether your headache is a migraine or not, keep reading. Migraines are a type of headache characterized by severe throbbing pain on one side of the head, nausea, vomiting, and intense sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can significantly reduce your quality of life. Migraines are different from other types of headaches in a few ways. Firstly, migraines are typically accompanied by other symptoms such as visual disturbances, tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, and sensitivity to light or sound. Secondly, migraines can last for hours or even days which is typically longer than other types of headaches. Thirdly, migraine headaches are more likely to be disabling and more intense than other types of headaches.
How Can IV Therapy Help with Migraines?
An IV is when a doctor or nurse injects medicine directly into your bloodstream via veins in your arm or hand through an IV drip. IV therapy is a more effective way to treat migraines than traditional oral medications as no medication is lost during the digestive process. Additionally, the dosage of medication that can be delivered through an IV drip is much larger than the amount you would get from a pill, which also helps stop nausea. The medicine administered through IV therapy calms the inflammation in the brain that is thought to cause migraines, and it also targets the proteins responsible for overactive nerve endings. Blocking these proteins calms the nerve endings and halts the process that causes migraines. As IV infusion therapy targets several different processes in the body at once which makes it very effective for migraine relief. For example, IV therapy provides immediate hydration. This is important because dehydration is one of the leading causes of migraines. IV infusion therapy delivers electrolytes and vitamins directly to the bloodstream which greatly benefits migraine sufferers who are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals and/or suffer from an electrolyte imbalance.
How Long Does it Take for a Migraine IV Infusion to Work?
If you are a migraine sufferer, IV infusion therapy can be a very effective treatment. In fact, it works so quickly, you will feel relief within minutes of starting your treatment. In addition, it can help to prevent future migraine episodes when taken regularly as a maintenance treatment. If you have tried other treatments for migraine headaches without success, IV infusion therapy is certainly worth trying. IV infusion therapy is also ideal for those individuals who suffer from secondary headaches caused by their migraine medications. If you are taking ongoing medications for your migraines and are still experiencing headaches, this could mean you are experiencing what is known as a “medication overuse headache”. Stopping the medication can cause your primary headache to come back, while continuing the medication will allow the secondary headache to continue. IV therapy can help break this cycle!
