Complications of Migraine
Occasionally, Migraine Headaches can last
for much longer than 72 hours and don't respond to standard
migraine treatment. This type of migraine
headache is known as status migrainosus, and you may
need to go to hospital for pain relief and to treat dehydration
caused by vomiting.
If you have migraines on more than 15 days per month, this
is known as chronic migraine. People with chronic
migraine often have to take increasing amounts of
medication to control their migraines. In turn, this can lead
to further headaches, known as medication-overuse headaches
(also called rebound or withdrawal headaches).
Migraine has also been found to be associated with an
increased risk of anxiety and
panic disorder, depression and
stroke (where the blood supply to part of
the brain is blocked). Loss of love life,
loss of relationships, loss of
family togetherness, etc.
