Dr.Manoj's Homeopathy Treatments For Migrane
Have you ever suffered from a severe throbbing pain on one side of your head? Does your vision get blurred? Do you feel nauseous, wanting to just lie down in a dark room without any sound and light? Do You feel better after you vomit a couple of times?….You could be suffering from a migraine!
Migraine headaches are one of the most common types of headache. There are several types of migraines and symptoms vary from person to person. The most common feature of a migraine attack is a persistent one-sided headache. The headache is often accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and you may be hypersensitive to light and sound.
Migraine attacks can last between 2 and 72 hours, but there are no symptoms between attacks. The exact cause of a migraine is not known. However, it is believed that the headache develops as a result of swollen blood vessels in the head pulsating, causing the surrounding nerves to feel pain, while visual disturbances are caused by blood vessels to the eyes contracting. In women who suffer from migraine, hormone changes may also be involved. In some women, a migraine could occur a few days before, during, and immediately after menstruation.
About 70% of women who have migraine can relate their migraines headaches to their menstrual period. About 80% of people who get migraine headaches have a family history of migraine, which suggests that they are, at least in part, inherited.
Some people find that their migraines are triggered by something. Triggers might include :
- Certain foods – such as chocolate, cheese, red wine, citrus fruits, coffee, tea
- Too much or too little sleep,
- Changes in hormone balance in women – such as periods, the pill, menopause,
- Stress, or relaxation after a period of stress,
- Irregular meals,
- Caffeine withdrawal,
- Physical activity,
- Flashing lights,
- Weather -change of season, exposure to sun and glare,
- Exercise – too much or too little,
- Smells – paint, fumes,perfume.
Unfortunately, avoiding triggers may not prevent migraine, as most migraines are not caused by a single, identifiable trigger rather some combination of factors.
