Migraines Q & A

What are migraines?

A migraine is a neurological condition that causes a variety of painful and disruptive symptoms. When you have a migraine, your symptoms can last from 4-72 hours. While a severe headache is the hallmark of a migraine, you may also experience:

  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smells
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Visual disturbances like halos, flashes of light, or bright spots
  • Tingling sensations in your face or extremities

 

You may or may not have warning signs of a migraine attack. For example, you may have abnormal food cravings, neck stiffness, or fatigue in the days before a migraine attack. 

 

What causes migraines?

The exact cause of migraines isn’t fully understood. Although medical researchers have identified many factors that contribute to migraine attacks, including fluctuations in your hormones and brain chemicals. Other factors that contribute to migraines include:

  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Bright lights
  • Loud sounds
  • Skipping meals
  • Certain foods and preservatives
  • Medications 

 

While identifying your migraine triggers is essential to taking steps to avoid them, regardless of what causes your migraines, you want rapid, effective relief. 

 

How are migraines treated?

Charlotte Ketamine Center offers ketamine therapy for migraines. In clinical studies, ketamine causes a significant reduction in migraine severity. Charlotte Ketamine Center provides nebulized ketamine therapy that you inhale. 

You have the treatment in their comfortable and professional offices, and a member of the clinical team stays with you during your treatment and after, while any immediate side effects subside. 

While nebulized ketamine has fewer side effects than ketamine infusions, you may still become fatigued or have a floating sensation. When any initial side effects wear off, you need a friend or family member to drive you home. 

Patients at Charlotte Ketamine Center report a 50% or greater improvement after just one treatment. 

 

How do I know if ketamine therapy will relieve my migraines?

Charlotte Ketamine Center provides comprehensive exams and consultations before recommending any ketamine therapy. If you are generally healthy, but experience migraines, ketamine therapy may be an excellent treatment option. It’s not suitable for you if you have a history of substance abuse, high blood pressure, or other vascular health problems.
