What is a Migraine?
A migraine is a prolonged or severe headache that causes a throbbing pain in the temples. Migraines can also cause nausea or vomiting, and some may make you sensitive to changes in light and sound. The length of a migraine varies; however, they can continue for hours or even days.
As they have such a big impact on your physical wellbeing, many people struggle to work or socialise whilst experiencing a migraine. Unfortunately, there currently isn’t a cure. However, there are ways to relieve the symptoms of a migraine.
What triggers a migraine?
If you frequently experience migraines, it may be worth keeping a diary of the food you consumed and things you did during that day. By tracking hormonal, dietary and environmental factors you might be able to pinpoint what it is that triggers the headaches.
Emotional factors are very common triggers for a migraine. For instance, your migraine may be caused by an increase in stress, anxiety or if you have experienced a shock. Physical reasons for the onset of a migraine can include tiredness, over exercising and tension in your shoulders or neck caused by poor posture.
Dietary triggers can be harder to track, as in some cases it may not be the food you have eaten, but the temperature of the food as this increases the levels of tyramine which triggers headaches. However, products to watch out for include alcohol, caffeine, citrus-based foods and any product that naturally contains tyramine, such as cured meats and some cheeses.
Are there different types of migraines?
There are several different forms of migraines. The two major categories these fall into are ‘migraines with aura,’ and a ‘migraines without aura.’
Aura migraines can be very disorientating, as they can have a big impact on your vision and cause you to see shapes or flashes, or even lose vision for short periods of time. They can also impact your sense of smell, taste and touch.
A migraine without aura can be very painful. Many people cannot continue daily activities due to the discomfort it causes. The pain and disorientation can also cause vomiting and more.
