TENS and Migraines
What is a Migraine headache?
Migraines usually start with a throbbing headache centered above the eye. It can also begin at the back of the head and spreads to one side. The pain is believed to be associated with intense vasoconstriction, followed by prolonged dilation of blood vessels leading to and within the brain. Attacks vary in duration and frequency. In classic migraines the pain is preceded by visual disturbances, sensitivity to light, nausea, and dizziness. One of the most frequent causes is eating chocolate, caffeine and drinking red wine.
What is the best migraine treatment? TENS or electro acupuncture?
