ICD-10 Codes for Migraine

A migraine can cause severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities. For some people, a warning symptom known as an aura occurs before or with a headache.

An aura can include visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or blind spots, or other disturbances, such as tingling on one side of the face or in an arm or leg and difficulty speaking. Medications can help prevent some migraines and make them less painful. The right medicines, combined with self-help remedies and lifestyle changes, might help.

Causes of Migraines

Researchers believe that migraine has a genetic cause. There are also a number of factors that can trigger a migraine. These factors vary from person to person, and they include stress, anxiety, hormonal changes in women, bright lights, loud noises, strong smells, medicines, too much or not enough sleep, sudden changes in weather or environment, overexertion, tobacco, caffeine, caffeine withdrawal, skipped meals, or medication overuse. Some people have found that certain foods or ingredients can trigger headaches, especially when they are combined with other triggers. These foods and ingredients include alcohol, chocolate, aged cheeses, MSG, some fruits and nuts, fermented foods, and yeast.

Treatment for Migraines

Migraine treatment is aimed at stopping symptoms and preventing future attacks.Many medications have been designed to treat migraines. Medications used to combat migraines fall into two broad categories: pain-relieving medications and preventive medications. Your treatment choices depend on the frequency and severity of your headaches, whether you have nausea and vomiting with your headaches, how disabling your headaches are, and other medical conditions you have. Medications used to relieve migraine pain work best when taken at the first sign of an oncoming migraine — as soon as signs and symptoms of a migraine begin. Medications that can be used to treat it include pain reliever, triptans, dihydroergotamine, lasmiditan, ubrogepant, opioid medications, and anti-nausea drugs. Preventive medication is aimed at reducing how often you get a migraine how severe the attacks are and how long they last. Options include blood pressure-lowering medications, antidepressants, anti-seizure drugs, botox injections, and calcitonin gene-related peptide monoclonal antibodies.
