Effective Treatment For Headaches and Migraines in Omaha
If you have sleep apnea and experience chronic headaches, especially migraines, sleep apnea treatment may be able to help. In one study, people getting sleep apnea treatment saw their average number of migraine attacks drop from nearly six per month to less than one. They also saw a reduction in their migraine pain, missed fewer days of work, and took less pain medication for their headaches. Sleep apnea can serve as a powerful migraine trigger, making the headaches more common and more severe.
We see similar results for people with tension headaches, and people with morning headaches see even better results.
Even if sleep apnea treatment can’t fully resolve your headaches, it can play an important support role for other headache and migraine treatments.
Get Better Sleep and Enjoy Fewer Headaches in Omaha
People with primary headache disorders are more than twice as likely to have sleep apnea than those who don’t have headaches. If you do have sleep apnea, the odds are that it is leading to more frequent and more severe headaches. This can interfere with your other headache treatments, causing you to lean more on preventive and acute headache medications. Treating sleep apnea can help with your headaches. For some, it might mean you don’t need other headache treatments. For most, it will help with your headaches and improve the effectiveness of other headache treatments.
