Migraine: Migraine Case Study
Migraine: Case Study
This case involved a 41-year-old female who was struggling with chronic migraines, resulting in depression and anxiety disorder, and poor concentration. She had been experiencing migraines since college, averaging a migraine every 8 days that would last from 5-72 hours. In February of 2011, she was hospitalized with a hemapalegic migraine that caused temporary paralysis. When seen in the office for an initial evaluation, she was taking 5 daily prescribed medications for migraines and 5 additional medications during an attack (PRN). She was on disability, as her headaches had incapacitated her, and she was unable to work and effectively care for her three children.
After several neurofeeedback sessions, she noticed migraines were responding more quickly to PRN medications. After more sessions, the intensity and duration of migraines were significantly reduced. Additionally, the frequency of her headaches was greatly reduced. She also noted that her ability to effectively interact with and discipline her children with consistency had improved. She was not longer necessary to take medication to reduce anxiety in the evenings when streses were the highest. At this point, she began working with her doctor to titrate off her daily medications. Her doctors, who had worked with her for years, commented that her affect was much brighter than they had ever noticed before. As treatment with neurofeedback and counseling continued, depression and anxiety symptoms were eliminated, and her ability to concentrate on a certification exam was notably improved. After client finished treatment, she returned to full-time employment with energy to effectively involve herself in her children’s activities and evening routines.
