10 Signs You Suffer from Migraines

Pittsburgh Migraine TreatmentMigraine headaches are a serious problem that effect millions of Americans. About 14 million Americans have migraine headaches almost every day.

Here are 10 signs that migraine is approaching:

  • Aura – seeing flickering lights, spots, or lines.
  • Numbness or tingling – usually starts in fingers and moves through hands.
  • Depression – sudden non-provoked depression.
  • Insomnia or other sleep problems – many people with migraines do not get restful sleep.
  • Sinus issues – stuffy nose, clear drainage, and watery eyes.
  • Sensitivity to smells, light, and sound.
  • Head and eye pain – throbbing pain in one of both sides of your head or behind an eye.
  • Stiff neck.
  • Yawning.
  • Nausea or vomiting.

If you are suffering from migraines, Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) may be the cause. TMJ is a disorder that occurs when your jaw becomes misaligned, and it often causes migraines.

If you have TMJ, Dr. Frye can get you relief by addressing the underlying issues which are responsible for your headaches.

Besides migraines, other signs that you may TMJ include:

  • Jaw problems such as trouble biting or chewing, popping, and sticking or locking. Also inability to fully open your mouth.
  • Earaches.
  • Numbness or pain in hands and fingers.
  • Pain or tightness in the neck and shoulders.
