Common Causes of Migraines (And How to Fix Them)

Migraine is a form of headache. Little is known about them, but recent research has shown some triggers and treatments. They affect more women than men, have varying degrees of severity, and have different triggers. Migraines come as more than a headache. Common symptoms include: headache (either continuous or pulmonary pain), nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and / or sound. Some people experience warning signs (aura) that migraines will occur. Migraine can last from 4 hours to 72 hours or longer.

Common treatments include painkillers at the onset of pain, as well as anti-nausea medications to stop any nausea or vomiting.

But is this enough?

First, let's look at the triggers. The trigger is called because it triggers the onset of migraine. The exact mechanism for how it causes migraines is still unknown. Common triggers include: alcohol, allergic reactions, pollen, flowers (especially strong fragrance), chocolate, skipping meals, high sugar diets, high caffeine intake, hormonal changes, stress / tension and even light or sound. Find your personal trigger hit and miss. It requires keeping a journal and identifying what you experienced before the migraine. Once you've found your trigger, you can try to delete it.

Many women find that their migraine is linked to hormones. They may have migraine during puberty, pregnancy, before the period or during menopause. Birth control pills can help treat this migraine by making hormones even out, so there is no sudden increase or fall in the levels. Obviously, this may not be the right treatment for everyone, so talk to your doctor.

While some are fortunate enough to control their migraines with paracetamol, others require something stronger. Codeine is a popular choice, although care is needed to ensure the right dose is taken. In migraine fog, it's easy to overdo it, causing blood to become too acidic and leading to further problems. Sumatriptan is usually involved in the treatment of normal migraine, but it is less beneficial for the migraine. Anti-depressants can also be used effectively for migraine prevention. Once the migraine starts though, these medications are useless. In all cases of medication, please consult with your doctor to find the right treatment for you.

Migraines account for billions of dollars in lost productivity every year worldwide. With a little understanding of the triggers and the right remedies, the incidence of such conditions can be reduced.
