Migraines and Vertiginous Migraines have been diagnosed since thousands of years. A severe migraine attack can be debilitating and tremendously lower your quality of life. Some people take medicines for years but still fear of the inevitable attack. Sometimes the ‘Aura’ can be worse than the headache itself. Nausea, photophobia (sensitivity to light) and phonophobia (sensitivity to sound) are common complaints. So how does psychological intervention solve something so clearly physical in nature?

It is impossible to fully treat a migraine unless the emotional state of the patient is also taken into consideration. Stress/anxiety and depression can aggravate or even lead to migraine attacks.

The use of psychotherapy is an established method for treating migraines. Various methods are used by the therapist to identify and change the faulty behaviour patterns in the patients. Controlling and or eliminating anxiety or depression with professional help are invaluable in the long term management of migraine headaches.

If you have been diagnosed with migraines and/or suffer from dizziness or a heavy head most of the time, consider psychotherapy. It is safe, conducted online and you need not stop or change the prescription you are on immediately. To know more, book an online consultation with Dr. Goyal by clicking on the link below.
