What does Botox have to do with it? Five things you probably didn’t know about migraines

What does Botox have to do with it? Five things you probably didn’t know about migraines

About one billion people worldwide suffer from migraine headaches. Here are some new insights and developments in the field

  1. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the use of a drug called Aimovig, which is the first-ever medication that treats migraine attacks before they begin. Aimovig blocks the secretion of a protein called calcitonin peptide, which is one of the causes of migraine attacks. In clinical trials, one of every two patients reported a 50% reduction in the number of days of having a migraine per month, over a six months period. 
  2. A 2016 study found that transcranial direct current stimulation therapy may relieve migraine pain. The treatment manages to reduce the frequency and ease the intensity of the pain while changing nerve sensitivity in the brain – by passing a weak electrical current through the scalp.

  3. Botox injections were approved for use in 2010 as a cure for chronic migraines. The Botox is injected around nerve fibers that transmit pain and blocks the release of chemicals that activate the pain transmission pathway. 
  4. Women are twice as likely as men to suffer from migraines. During menstruation, women experience hormonal changes that can cause migraines. Even after childbirth, women may develop symptoms of migraines due to a sharp drop in the estrogen levels in their bodies. 
  5. A Taiwanese study of migraine sufferers found that in many cases, changes in atmospheric air pressure were consistent with cases of severe headache. Air pressure in the atmosphere affects the dilation and contraction of blood vessels in the body. When the pressure rises, blood vessels narrow; and when the pressure drops, blood vessels dilate. The study found that even slight deviations from the average seasonal air pressure could trigger migraine attacks.
