Migraine and Headache Awareness Month is Behind Us – Are Your Migraine Headaches Still Here?
At MPP Infusion Centers® our minds are always thinking of our patients’ wellbeing. While Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (June) has passed, our focus on improving the lives of our patients continues. This is why we are continuously exploring the most effective treatments for our patients. When it comes to migraine headaches, we know, they have got to go.
Headache Pain Is More Than An inconvenience.
Headaches are life interrupters. They steal precious moments. Our patients tell us that those stolen moments are usually the big events in their lives – the milestone moments that they don’t want to miss. It doesn’t have to be this way. This is why our patients choose MPP Infusion Centers® IV Infusion Therapy.
IV Infusion Therapy Is A Headache Hack
While trigger awareness and management are helpful in mitigating migraine headache inconvenience, IV Infusion Therapy can provide fast and comprehensive relief from pain, nausea, and inflammation. Infusion Therapy is time and cost-effective with the positive effects continuing for up to more than a month post-treatment. For more detail see our blog from last week.

Migraines are painful.
Have you heard the saying, ”better than a stick in the eye”? It describes something that is not very good by comparing it to something awful. I have never had a stick in the eye, but I can imagine it is a painful experience. I have had a migraine. Just once, and that experience has convinced me that a migraine is NOT better than a stick in the eye, not even a searing one.
When my migraine began, I described it to my husband as an eyeball headache, which he found humorous. I must admit, I thought it was a little funny too…when it was dull. Apparently, there are no rules or boundaries for migraines; and as the day grew longer, my headache became stronger. By lunchtime, I felt like the Incredible Hulk and Thor were battling it out inside my brain. The pounding was relentless. My vision blurred and EVERYTHING became painful. Sunlight hurt. Walking – every. little. step. – hurt. Listening hurt. Talking made me nauseated; a feeling I avoid at all costs, so that hurt. Honestly, even thinking about it now makes me hurt. Thinking then was impossible, especially thinking clearly enough to be productive. The pain was so intrusive and rude… and mounting.
Infusion treatments can help.
I would have tried anything to make the pain go away. Having read somewhere that most headaches are caused by dehydration, I powered through an amazing amount of water, to no avail. I tried some stress exercises. I tried eating, but since I was already nauseated, the more probable outcome was not comforting. Finally, feeling somewhat defeated by the pain, I took an over the counter pain medication, curled up in the fetal position under our comforter, pulled my pillow over my head, and got as close to sleep as I could with a jackhammer pounding in my head.
Sound familiar? That was one headache that lasted one day. If you suffer from chronic migraines, if you deal with the weight of an epic battle going on in your head regularly, you must be a superhero. I tip my hat to you for your endurance. Even superheroes can benefit from support. Infusion treatments can provide migraine sufferers with fast relief. They are a convenient, comfortable, and cost-effective solution for regaining control and enjoyment. Infusion treatments usually take about an hour and can be effective for more than a month post-treatment.
