Chronic migraines can be a debilitating and excruciating condition. Millions of people are affected. Migraines can cause severe headaches, which can lead to permanent disability. Migraine can cause extreme sensitivity to light and sound, smell, touch, and smell. Some migraine sufferers may experience nausea and weakness, fainting, hallucinations, visual impairment, and hallucinations.
Many sufferers experience these symptoms multiple times per month, which can greatly impact their quality of living. Modern medicine has made it possible for migraine sufferers to find relief and restore their normal lives. Although the exact cause of migraine attacks can vary from one person to another, the root cause is the same for everyone who has ever suffered one.
Migraine headaches are caused by problems in the brain. The brain is where blood vessels expand and nerve fibers around them release chemicals. As the attack continues, the artery just below the temple surface, on the outside of your skull, expands, releasing more chemicals that cause inflammation and pain. This causes the artery to expand even more. Migraine attacks do not affect the head only.
This type of headache causes the sympathetic nervous system to trigger the body to react with unpleasant symptoms such as a migraine attack. Migraine attacks can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and sensitivity to light or sound. These attacks can also reduce the body’s ability absorb food, which can lead to malnourishment and weakness, which are all dangerous conditions. These symptoms can quickly become severe if they are not treated.
Triggers are the causes of migraines. These triggers can have a wide range of effects depending on the individual. What affects one person may not have an impact on another. Some triggers can be physical or emotional, such as stress, sleep deprivation or hormonal changes due to menstrual cycles or pregnancy, and physical exertion. Others are physiological, such as eating insufficiently, dehydration and alcohol consumption, smoking, overstimulation, particularly with bright light or strong odors, and allergies.
Migraine attacks can also be linked to certain foods and food groups. These foods include foods containing tyramine. This compound is found in aged cheeses and wine as well as some beans, MSG, and nitrates such deli meats. People with migraine attacks should avoid chocolate, peanut butter and bananas. Although there is no known reason why certain foods trigger migraine attacks, others may be related to the food’s effects on the brain’s blood vessels.
