Migralepsy is a seizure that is triggered by a migraine with aura. For example, a person may suffer from a migraine, and once it is gone, he or she may have a seizure within a few hours. Symptoms include:
- Seeing flashes of light
- Visual disturbances
- Severe head pain
- Nausea and vomiting
It may be hard to differentiate whether a migraine is causing the seizure or the seizure is the reason for a migraine. The truth is that neither is really the correct answer. Some even wonder if a migraine is acting as an aura or a warning, that the seizure is about to occur. This is similar to how someone suffering a migraine may first see sparkles or flashes of light before a headache hits.
Another area to be aware of is a condition referred to as occipital seizures. These have very similar symptoms to migraines, such as:
- Pain in the eyes
- Moving the eyes from side to side quickly
- Fluttering of the eyes
- Visual disturbances such as blindness or blurriness
- Seeing images over and over
Both migralepsy and occipital seizures are connected to occipital nerve malfunction. This nerve is located in the brain and is responsible for sending out proper signals. When this does not happen for some reason, a seizure can be the end result, along with auras and migraines. This is linked to the central nervous system working improperly, thereby sending damaged signals.
Migralepsy Helped by Proper Spinal Alignment
Success is being seen in helping migralepsy patients with upper cervical chiropractic care. If a misalignment is located in either of the bones of the upper neck, undue pressure is being placed on the spinal cord. This interferes with signals being sent to and from the brain and body. Blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid flow can be compromised, as well. This leads to migraines, seizures, and a host of other health problems.
Using a gentle procedure, the misalignment can be corrected bringing the body and brain back into proper communication. Healing can take over, and the nervous system can begin to function at its optimum once again. This often results in the reduction or even elimination of migraines, headaches, seizures, and migralepsy.
