Many people suffer the debilitating effects of migraine headaches. Migraines generally involve painful throbbing on one side of the head, and are differentiated from regular headaches because they can also include nausea, vomiting, disturbed vision, and sensitivity to light, sound and sometimes smells. Migraines can last anywhere from 4-72 hours, and can be as frequent as twice a week.
Although the causes of migraines are not fully understood, there are some common triggers, which include stress, medication, sleep patterns, changes in weather, allergies, food and food additives, and hormonal changes.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for migraines, and treatments vary person to person. Generally, maintaining some healthy lifestyle habits can be key to preventing the onset of a migraine. These include reducing stress and anxiety, drinking enough water, getting enough restful sleep, avoiding any foods that trigger a migraine, and exercising regularly.
