Migraine is a chronic disease characterised by the presence of throbbing hemicranial pain and is sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as vomiting, photosensitivity or intolerance to noise and chemicals.
In most cases, the origin and causes of migraines or headaches are unknown. In many patients, migraines are found to be caused by hypersensitivity in the central nervous system, immunoneuroendocrine and mitochondrial dysfunction, and food sensitisation, among other factors.
When these patients are diagnosed and treated under the central sensitivity syndrome approach, this symptomatology improves and may even disappear, obtaining improvements in up to 75%.
Consequently, considering a common origin and a central sensitivity level approach may be more helpful in discovering better diagnoses and treatments for these patients.
