What is it?

Migraine headaches are a type of headache that usually involve nausea, sensitivity to light, and intractable pain that causes patients to miss school or work.

What causes it?

Migraines have a number of causes and most of the time the cause of a patient’s headaches may never be identified.

How can it be treated?

Treatment of migraine headaches begins conservatively with lifestyle modification and medication management. If the migraines persist despite conservative management, a patient may then be a candidate for interventional procedures like Botox injections or occipital nerve blocks.
