Whiplash, Headaches, and Post-Concussion Syndrome (Continued)
These additional symptoms give clues as to the cause of the cluster headaches and reasons why Prolotherapy is so effective at stopping chronic headache pain. The cause is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system.
Cluster headache sufferers will visit the emergency room for Demerol or morphine shots. Prescription medications including Ergotamine, Imitrex, Vicodin, and other narcotic drugs are used. Because no headache is due to a Vicodin, ibuprofen, or Imitrex deficiency, these medications will never permanently cure the headaches. At best they give temporary relief, and the headache sufferer is only left to fearfully wait for the next attack. This is not the best approach. A much better approach is to correct the cause of the headache.
Migraine headaches are also called vascular headaches, because vascular system abnormalities give the headache its throbbing or pulsatile characteristic. Often times, a prodrome (early headache) and aura precede the headache. This type is called classic migraine.
The prodromal symptoms that occur before the migraine vary as to which system is involved. They may involve the autonomic nervous system with vasomotor sequelae, such as a feeling of flushing or pounding; the neurological system including numbness, tingling, and even temporary paralysis on one side of the body; or the muscular system with spasm and muscle pain typically in the neck. The mental state of the person during the prodromal period before the migraine attack can be anywhere from excitatory to withdrawn; the muscular signs range from stiffness to weakness; and the gastrointestinal symptoms can vary from craving to anorexia.(6)
