What are the symptoms of migraines?

Migraines are a neurological disease that causes symptoms far more severe than most other headaches. Some of the symptoms you may experience if you have migraines include:  

 

  • Aura: Pre-migraine symptoms like seeing flashes of light or tingling in a limb
  • Throbbing head pain, often on one side
  • Light sensitivity
  • Smell sensitivity
  • Sound sensitivity
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

 

Migraines usually last at least four hours, but they can continue for as long as three days (72 hours), meaning they can dramatically disrupt your life if not managed properly.

Do migraine headaches qualify for medical marijuana?

Migraine headaches may qualify for medical marijuana in Maine and Florida, the two states where Relief Clinic welcomes patients. In many cases, migraines cause long-term pain, often lasting for three to six months or even longer, which means they cause serious problems in your life. 

 

You may qualify for a medical marijuana card in your state if you have ongoing problems with migraine headaches, such as:

 

  • Migraines on a regular basis
  • Missing work, school, or important activities because of migraines
  • Poor quality of life due to migraine pain
  • Little or no success with traditional migraine treatments like oral medications

 

If you have chronic migraine headaches, your pain can last for not only months but years if you don’t find the proper treatment. So, for many people struggling with chronic migraine pain, medical marijuana is the solution they’ve been searching for. 

How can medical marijuana help with my migraines?

Recent studies show that marijuana can be a game-changer for people with chronic migraines. The active ingredients in medical marijuana including cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), flavonoids, and terpenes reduce your perception of migraine stimuli and decrease your symptoms like pain and nausea.

The team can fully evaluate your migraine headaches to determine whether you’re a good candidate for medical marijuana. Alongside your medical treatment, lifestyle changes like avoiding migraine triggers (certain scents, for example) can help.
