Headaches, migraines and clenching teeth

Posted By Dr Nishel Patel 8th November 2017

Flashing lights, a throbbing or pulsing pain in the side of your head, sensitivity to light, sound or even smells or touch, nausea or vomiting and blurred vision are all common symptoms of migraine. Migraine can be a hideously painful and crippling condition for many people. The symptoms and length of a migraine attack can seriously affect your quality of life. Tension headaches are less intense but the daily grind can eventually take its toll. They are also related to jaw grinding. Do you ever wake up with a headache around the forehead and temples? Does it sit with you for most of the day? Does it feel like a band around your head? Does it feel better when you massage your temples but then come back as soon as you stop? Well it’s likely you are clenching your teeth tightly at night.

Many patients find that taking over the counter pain relief or resting in a darkened room can help alleviate the symptoms of a migraine but for those who suffer recurring migraines or chronic headaches it may be worth investigating how Dr Nishel at his Skinesse clinic can help ease these symptoms with medical injections.

Medical injections have been used for many years to treat headaches and an experienced clinician such as Dr Nishel can advise treatment tailored to individual need.

Depending on your condition the effects of medical injections on migraine and chronic headaches can last 3 to 6 months. The injections work by relaxing the muscles that contribute to migraine and headache.

Dr Nishel is a skilled physician who can work with you to provide relief from this condition and invites patients to book a consultation to find out more about how medical injections can help improve your condition.
