Migraine Management: The 7 Essentials Empty Migraine Management: The 7 Essentials

Where Migraines are concerned, my personal goal is to control them rather than them controlling me. What I’ve learned along the way is that I must pay attention to Migraine management to accomplish that goal.

We now know that Migraine is a genetic neurological disease. Nobody wants to have a disease. However, once we acknowledge that Migraine is a disease and that we have this disease, it’s easier to address overall disease management.

In addressing Migraine disease management, I have found seven essential elements for effective Migraine management:

1 Getting a diagnosis – not only for having Migraine, but also which type or types of Migraine – and finding the right doctor to work with.
2 Educating ourselves about Migraine disease.
3 Trigger identification and management.
4 Preventive treatment for those of us with three or more Migraines a month or if Migraines are less frequent but particularly severe or debilitating.
5 Abortive treatment.
6 Rescue treatment to be used when abortive treatment fails.
7 A solid support system.
