What could be worse than the terrible pain of migraines? Having an all-out migraine attack and vertigo, at the same time. While the chances for a person to get these twin ailments are quite rare, it does happen. The good thing is that many people can find migraine and vertigo relief in Vancouver and get advice on how to beat severe headaches in one go.
What is a Vestibular Migraine?
According to experts, vestibular migraine or VM is a neurological condition that causes a person to experience headaches, motion sensitivity, a loss of balance, and nausea. In many cases, the loss of balance makes people vomit and become overly sensitive to light, noise, or even certain smells or scents.
Imagine that you are at work, doing your routine tasks. As you rise from your table to go on break, you suddenly see the world spinning around you. A throbbing, heavy pain strikes you in the head. The office lights also become a source of irritation as the ambient sounds of people working around you also create a feeling of great discomfort and irritation. This describes what people with VM have to go through time and again. What is more worrisome is that these terrible feelings or sensations could hit a person with VM anytime, anywhere.
Symptoms of Vestibular Migraines
Do you have any of these signs and symptoms?
- Neck pain or spasms across the nape
- Difficulty whenever there is a movement of one’s eyes, body, or head
- Painful ringing in the ears
- Inability to stand up, walk, or even sit due to a loss of physical balance
If you have any or all of these signs, it may be time to get vertigo relief in Vancouver. It is never too early to ask for help, especially on matters that concern your health and well-being. Specifically for VM, there have been cases where the person did not even have a headache, yet the other symptoms were present. The discomfort was such that their work and personal life are seriously hampered.
A visit with an upper cervical chiropractor is a good investment, especially for women who are more prone to suffer from VM than men. People aged 20 to 40 years old are also susceptible to this debilitating condition.
How to Beat Migraine and Vertigo
What can one do to relieve the severe head pain and loss of mobility due to nausea, vomiting, and loss of balance?
Getting vertigo relief in Vancouver starts with a thorough examination of an individual’s head and neck region. An upper cervical chiropractor would look for any structural misalignment in the neck area. Inside the neck, there could be bones that are no longer in place. The misaligned bones could lead to nerve impingement, muscle spasms, and other human body responses to “anomalies.”
The great news is that these bones can be carefully, safely, and gently reset to their original and optimal direction. Our upper cervical chiropractor here at Balanced Living can help you find relief from pain quickly and safely.
