Migraine Headaches Causes and Treatments - Controlling Triggers


The worst feeling in the world is when you get a migraine.  Many chronic migraines are a symptom of depression. In this case, the body constantly feels tired and the headaches are to inform the person that they arenít well and that they need to slow down a bit.  In cases like these, if you are able to reduce your stress levels or reduce the pace of your daily life then the migraines will be become less frequent.

First what is a migraine?  A migraine is different than a headache.  A headache is slight discomfort and pressure that fills the cranium. A migraine is when you are in so much pain that you cannot function. It disrupts your entire life.  It could be caused by many factors that include a nervous system glitch.


The some common migraine triggers are stress, hormone changes, too much sleep, too little steep, diet related, changed is weather, bright lights, caffeine, caffeine withdrawal, smoking, second-hand smoke, high sugar, strong emotions, lack of exercise, drugs, aspartame, too much sodium, nitrates, tyramines, your medications, overuse of aspirin, and strong odors that upset allergies.

First, nitrates are found in meats like bacon, cold cuts, and hot dogs.  Too much in a small period will affect you by giving you a migraine.  You will also want to watch your consumption of pickles or marinated foods, cheeses, and yeast products because they contain tyramines that will trigger a migraine. If you are on any blood thinners or such, be careful because if the blood becomes to thin it will not carry as much oxygen to the brain and cause a migraine to form. 


If you find yourself in a situation where you are clearly depressed or have major anxieties you may need to get help controlling your strong emotions that that you donít feel any pain on a daily basis.  Everyone will get a migraine every now and then, but it is good to avoid all the triggers and seek help for anything of the triggers that you canít control like depression.

If it is things like depression or your diet you will want to seek medical attention immediately so that you can learn to control the triggers and then lower your change of a migraine.  If that doesnít work, but you try your hardest to control your triggers, a doctor can prescribe medication so that you can have immediate pain relief when you are bothered by a migraine.

Migraines are not something that you should learn to deal with.  Rather you have an idea of what could be causing it or not, go seek the attention of a medical doctor.  That way they can rule out an nervous system failures and find the true reason behind your pain.
