Types of Migraines

Migraines can be devastating to the extent of affecting your quality of life. However, not all migraines are the same. Some migraines may affect your vision severely, while others only affect a particular part of your body. That's why it's important to visit our chiropractor for a proper assessment. At Palmer Chiropractic Center, we help patients in Lynchburg and Altavista identify the type of migraine they're experiencing and recommend the proper treatment methods for optimal results. Here are some of the most common types of migraines.

Migraine without Aura 

Migraine without aura is the most common type of migraine. More than seventy percent of people with migraines have this type. It usually causes pulsating pain on one side of the head. Other symptoms include ringing in the ears, nausea, and photophobia.

Migraine with Aura

Migraine with aura is associated with vision and sensory disturbances before the actual migraine strikes. People with this type of migraine may have problems with their speech, vision, and physical body, such as numbness in the face, hands, and fingers.

Hemiplegic Migraine

Hemiplegic is a rare migraine that impacts one side of your body. Hemiplegic migraine often imitates stroke symptoms, including weakness on one side of the body, speech disorder, and sudden severe headache.

Menstrual Migraine

Menstrual is a migraine usually experienced by about ten percent of women before, during, and after menstruation. Hormonal changes are the common culprits of menstrual migraines.

Migraine with Brainstem Aura

Migraine with brainstem is in the category of migraines with aura, accompanied by symptoms like speech disorders, vision, and sensory problems. Other symptoms include vertigo, ataxia, and tinnitus.
