All day long! To get rid of a migraine; Migraine Causes and Symptoms

Headaches are a common symptom that office workers may have experienced at least once. 

Among them, migraines are suffering from continuous pain that seems to tap hard on certain areas.

Understanding migraines

The first patient is more likely to have a stressful headache or tension type headache than a migraine. It is often misunderstood as migraine because only one side of the head hurts, but it is more likely to be neck and shoulder muscle pain caused by persistent tension and stress.

migraine symptoms

The characteristic symptom of migraine is intermittent severe headaches. One side of the head usually hurts, but it is also common for the whole head to hurt or the other side to hurt. Along with aura and prodromal symptoms, gastrointestinal symptoms such as misjudgment, vomiting and indigestion, as well as nervous system symptoms such as dizziness, light hypersensitivity and sound hypersensitivity.

The mechanisms for developing migraines affected by genetic and hormonal effects are very complex, but briefly summarized as follows: When certain nerve tissues located in the brain stem are overly excited by internal and external factors such as hormones and various environmental changes in patients with genetic predispositions, pain-causing substances pour out through the affected nerve cells, causing inflammatory reactions to the blood vessels of the mening membrane.

Causes of Migraine

The factors that can cause or worsen migraines vary from person to person. It may be caused by certain foods (especially foods containing certain cheese, such as red wine or pizza), or by drugs. Consistently excessive consumption of caffeine-containing beverages such as coffee increases the likelihood of migraine headaches. Hormonal changes and weather changes are also important triggers.

Various toxic stimuli, including persistent tension, stress, lack of sleep, and pain in muscles damaged by excessive tension, can also be a significant cause for women who are generally under-exercise and stressed out.

In the case of women in their 30s mentioned above, it is likely to be migraine due to intermittent severe headaches and dizziness and nausea.

In particular, the possibility of migraine increases when the rhythm of life suddenly changes, such as those who often drink coffee to maintain tension on weekends. Withdrawal of highly addictive caffeine increases the possibility of migraine if you don't drink your usual coffee.

Treatment and prevention of migraines

Treatment of migraines can be divided into acute symptomatic treatment that controls pain, elimination of triggers that cause migraines, and preventive therapy that stabilizes over-excited nerves. Pain relievers available in the acute period can control most of the pain if they are properly used with expert advice (such as Sumatryptane, Naratryptane, Almotryptane), a common pain reliever, or a combination of caffeine-containing painkillers, and migraine-related drugs. However, if headaches are too frequent, if painkillers are not properly controlled, or if the symptoms are too severe, prevention therapy for migraines is necessary.

Various drugs such as becha blockers (propanol), epileptic drugs (topyramate, valproate) or calcium blockers (fluorazine) can be taken continuously depending on individual characteristics. But most of all, to prevent migraines, first, drink less caffeine and reduce drinking. Second, it is important to take care of your life thoroughly, such as exercising regularly. Third, proper stress relief is needed. Fourth, you should control and avoid migraine triggers through enough sleep and rest.
