Migraine headaches are painful to experience. The discomfort in your physical health could be so severe that it interferes with your average, everyday life. They could last from a few hours to several days without explanation. Unfortunately, the exact cause for migraine headaches hasn’t been discovered.
Thankfully, medical experts around the world have unearthed a few valuable facts about migraine headaches. For one, your risks are higher if you have a migraine-prone family history. You are also more likely to experience migraine headaches due to hormonal medication like estrogen.
Read on as we discuss everything you need to know about migraine headaches.
In most cases, warning signs appear 15 to 60 minutes before a headache. You may experience blurred vision, see temporary light spots or lines, or even hallucinations. At the same time, you may experience sudden fatigue, excessive yawning, or a tingling sensation in a limb.
Migraine headaches manifest as a dull or heaviness around the eye or temple, worsening with activity or excessive movement. Along with this, you may experience increased pain on one or both sides of the head, a pulsing or pounding sensation, nausea and vomiting, or heightened sensitivity to light, noise or smell.
Although no scientific study has claimed to be the root cause of migraine headaches, stress, eye strain, lack of sleep, and fluctuations in hormones may all contribute to them.
Additionally, skipping meals, dehydration, and a poor diet of MSG-filled junk food, sugars, dairy, gluten, excessive caffeine, and alcohol are also known to trigger migraine headaches.
In other cases, however, sudden brightness or flashing lights, banging noises, strong scents, and extreme weather changes may also cause migraines.
A quick trip to the doctor will tell you that the purpose of treatment is to alleviate your symptoms, not cure your migraines. After running some specific tests, your doctor will prescribe medication, which may include NSAIDs, Acetaminophen, anti-nausea medication, pain relievers, and even cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT).
Although migraine headaches can seem almost impossible to deal with, they can be managed with a nutritious diet, proper sleep, a good amount of exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle. While we wait to find out its actual cause, let’s work consciously to prevent them! At the same time, keep these notes in handy for emergency symptoms.
