Orlando Migraine Specialists Q & A

Orlando Migraine Headache Doctors

Our interventional pain physicians specialize in headache treatment. We use a variety of techniques to help patients find relief from migraines, including medication, lifestyle changes, and interventional therapies such as ketamine infusions and radiofrequency ablation. In most cases, we can help our patients find complete relief from migraines. If you are suffering from migraines, our migraine specialists can help.

What Are Migraines?

Migraines are painful, recurring headaches that can be so intense they leave you unable to function normally. The throbbing pain in your head is typically on one side. It can last for hours or sometimes days. In addition to the headache, migraines can cause:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to sound and light
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Weakness
  • Extreme fatigue

People who get classical migraines also experience auras. These are visual disturbances that cause problems like temporary blind spots, dots, lines, or swirls in your eyes and seeing flashing lights. If you get common migraines, you won’t suffer from auras.

What Causes Migraine Headaches?

Researchers are still looking for the exact cause of migraines. However, abnormal brain activity is likely causing changes in the communication between your nerves and brain. This disrupts blood flow and changes chemical levels in your brain.

Women get migraine headaches more often than men, most likely because of changing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. Many people have triggers for their headaches. These take numerous forms, including:

  • Severe stress
  • Red wine
  • Caffeine
  • Cured meats
  • Aged cheeses
  • Chocolate
  • Dehydration
  • Irregular mealtimes
  • Lack of sleep

Identifying your triggers is an invaluable step in managing this condition.

Are You Neurologists, and What Is Your Role in Headache Treatment?

No, we are not neurologists. Patients are usually referred to us by a neurologist or primary care physician for evaluation of treatment-refractory headaches. We offer many minimally and non-invasive therapies to help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches.

How Do You Manage the Pain From Migraine Headaches?

There aren’t any cures for the condition, but our team will help you manage them and reduce their severity.

First, they assess things like your diet, sleep patterns, stress levels, and other areas that could be contributing to attacks. Making changes is beneficial for your overall health as well as reducing headache frequency and severity.

Medications can often help. Drugs help prevent attacks from happening and reduce the intensity of your symptoms. Our clinic also offers advanced treatments for migraine headaches, including:

Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine infusions are very effective at treating pain from chronic headaches. The medication "resets" pain signaling in the central nervous system and provides lasting relief from chronic headaches. The infusions are administered by Dr. Mautner or Dr. Goel in our clinic in Clermont near Orlando, FL.

Medications

While there is no cure for migraines, there are several types of medicine that can help to lessen the frequency and severity of attacks. Some of the most common migraine medications include triptans, anticonvulsants, and beta-blockers. These drugs work by affecting different chemicals in the brain that are involved in migraines. In some cases, a combination of two or more migraine headache medications may be necessary to achieve the desired effect. While there is no guaranteed way to prevent migraines, many people find that certain lifestyle changes, such as sleeping adequately and managing stress levels, can help to reduce the frequency of attacks.

Nerve Blocks

Nerve blocks are a type of treatment that can be used to relieve pain. When a nerve block is used for migraines, it works by interrupting the pain signals that are sent from the head to the brain. In most cases, nerve blocks are only temporary solutions for migraines. However, they can provide significant relief for some people and may help to prevent future migraines from occurring.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat migraines. The procedure uses heat to destroy the nerve fibers that are responsible for transmitting pain signals from the brain. Radiofrequency ablation is typically performed on an outpatient basis, and most patients report significant relief from their migraine symptoms. The procedure is safe and effective, with a low risk of complications. Some patients may experience minor side effects, such as soreness or bruising at the treatment site. However, these side effects are typically short-lived and do not require additional treatment. Radiofrequency ablation is an excellent option for patients who are seeking relief from chronic migraines.

Medical Botox® Injections

Botox, best known for reducing lines and wrinkles, also has numerous medical uses. One of them is treating migraines. Botox helps by disrupting chemical messages to and from your nerves, which reduces the intensity of your pain. Regular Botox injections could help if you’re getting 15 or more migraines or severe headaches each month.

Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block

The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a nerve bundle that connects to the trigeminal nerve. This large facial nerve seems to play a significant role in headaches. A sphenopalatine ganglion nerve block uses a local anesthetic around the nerve to numb the pain. The injection might also contain a neurolytic agent, a substance that damages the nerves causing pain.

Migraines are a serious condition that can cause debilitating pain for those who suffer from them. While the cause of migraines is still unknown, we do know how to treat them.
