Migraine with aura
What is it?
The attack is preceded by an aura (neurological symptoms) such as tingling in one part of the body or a blind spot (scotoma) in the field of vision. The actual attack can then vary in length (4 to 72 hours). Between attacks, there are no symptoms. The pain is violent, pulsating, usually on one side of the head and made worse by physical activity, often being accompanied by nausea or vomiting. Sufferers find noise and light difficult to tolerate.
Is indicated when attacks are frequent (several times a month). Cefaly’s effectiveness will first and foremost be preventative in order to significantly reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. It can also reduce pain during an attack.
