Understanding the causes of Migraine

 

 

Migraine is such a complicated condition that varies widely between individuals. What may work for one person may not for another. Typically it is a one-sided throbbing or pulsating headache that is at least moderately intense and can be aggravated by physical activity. It is very often associated with nausea and vomiting, as well as increased sensitivity to light, sound and even some types of smell. Doctors are unable to predict how an individual will respond to a particular treatment so this means you may need to try several different treatments until one is found that is the best at controlling your condition. 

 

Here are come of the most common reasons why migraine is triggered:

  • Stress

  • Lack of sleep

  • Viral infection

  • Missed or skipped meals

  • Dietary triggers (chocolate, cheese, etc)

  • Menstruation and Ovulation

  • Emotional imbalance

  • Weather change

It is always a challenge living with migraines. Majority of the people who suffers from it experience moderate to severe disability. The symptoms and pain makes it difficult for individuals to function effectively during the attack. According to the World Health Organization (WHO); Migraine is the 4th leading cause of disability in the world. The good news is that you can be pain-free today. Various modern approaches, technology, and treatment are now available.  #migraine #dizziness #dizzy #headache #nausea #vomit #pain #painmanagement #specialist #doctor #physician #winnielimkhoo #headachecentermanila #headachecenter #manila #philippines #cure #treatment #trigger #prevention #health #healthy #life #goodlife
