What’s Causing My Migraines?
The demand in Cincinnati for migraine treatment is considerable, yet regrettably consistent with the rest of the nation. In fact, the Migraine Research Foundation reports that a migraine sufferer inhabits nearly one out of every four households in the U.S.
Occasionally accompanied by vomiting, blind spots and sensitivity to light and noise, these painfully debilitating headaches can last either a couple of hours or several days.
Some common causes of migraines include:
- Alcohol consumption.
- Food sensitivity.
- Heightened stress.
- Hormonal changes or medications.
- Physical exertion.
- Sleeping irregularities.
- Changing weather.
A searing, recurrent headache is the most commonly reported symptom of Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), a jaw-muscle and nerve disorder that is often accompanied by other symptoms such as:
- Jaw clicking or popping.
- Jaw locking.
- Face and jaw fatigue.
- Neck and shoulder pain.
- Biting or chewing difficulty.
Treating TMJ varies depending on your individual situation. Treatments could involve medication, therapy, or complete mouth reconstruction. The most important step to remedying TMJ symptoms is to schedule an appointment with an experienced dentist. Dr. Tara Hardin is an accredited member the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and has years of experience helping patients find relief from migraines.
