Most people are probably familiar with the two main types of Migraine - Migraine without Aura and Migraine with Aura, but that barely scratches the surface of the types of Migraine and the subtypes. This can be valuable information, so we're going to delve into the types of Migraine as well as the subtypes.
There is this public perception that when a migraine attack ends, life goes back to “normal.” Few people outside the migraine community understand that even episodic migraine can impact us so that “normal” life is impossible. There are things we do or avoid doing every single day in the hopes of preventing even one attack. Here are 10 things to do every day to live well with migraine.
Migraine trigger identification and management is an integral part of Migraine management that's too often overlooked. Knowing the most common Migraine triggers is a great start toward identifying and avoiding as many as possible. While not all Migraine triggers are avoidable, some are. If we can identify avoidable triggers, we can actually avoid some Migraine attacks.
Migraine is divided into two major subtypes, migraine without aura and migraine with aura. Migraine with aura is less common, occurring in 25-30% of migraineurs. Few people have the aura phase with every migraine attack. Thus, it’s quite common to be diagnosed with both migraine with aura and migraine without aura.
