Migraine

Migraine is a condition which refers to severe headache that is commonly associated with signs like blind spots, nausea and/or vomiting. Migraine headaches are extremely painful and can last for hours or sometimes even for days together. Migraine headaches are often caused by certain genetic as well as environmental factors. These factors cause blood vessels in the brain to constrict and trigger headache. Triggers of migraine headache can vary among people with migraine. Certain chemicals in foods may trigger migraine headache in some people while in other factors like stress, loud noise, bright lights and poor sleep or sleep disorders can trigger migraine headache. In most migraine sufferers the pain is usually confined to half part of the brain and is pulsating or throbbing. It may worsen with physical activity like climbing the stairs or brisk walking. There is no cure for migraine but the symptoms can be controlled with medicines or pain killers and by eliminating factors that trigger migraine. Migraine can be prevented to a great extent by exercising and alternative therapies like acupuncture. In this section you’ll find detailed information on complications of migraine, how migraine causes depression, the impact of migraine on brain function and much more. You can also find tips to fight migraine, foods that you should stay away from and some amazing facts about migraine.
