147527 - How to Treat quiz: Migraine

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Migraine is one of the most common diseases worldwide and a major cause of disability. Migraine is understood as a disorder of sensory processing in susceptible people, and the pain reflects trigeminovascular pathway activation and sensitisation. The timeline of a migraine episode includes premonitory symptoms, the aura headache and postdromal phases. The management of a migraine includes education, lifestyle advice, effective acute migraine treatment and starting preventative medication, if required. Management of comorbidities is vital. Before making the diagnosis of migraine, it’s important to rule out secondary headache disorders initially. Medication overuse headache often coexists with chronic migraine and needs to be addressed.
