A person with migraine without aura
has a severe debilitating migraine attack
which lasts longer than 3 days.
Even after temporary relief from medication,
the symptoms remain.
Misdiagnosis is frequent. You may have…
- Headache from epilepsy
- Medication overuse headache
- Probable migraine without aura
- Other conditions & disorders
or are worse than ever.
Your doctor may recommend:
- An EEG
- An MRI
- dihydroergotamine mesylate (DHE)
- valproate acid (also sodium valproate)
- dopamine antagonists
- hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
