A migraine is not just a bad headache
Do you suffer from frequent headaches, particularly, in one section of a head? Do you also feel nauseous at those times of pain attack? Then there is a possibility that you might be suffering from a migraine.
To generalize a migraine with a normal headache will be absolutely inappropriate. A migraine is the result of certain physiologic alterations that occur within the brain and consequently result in the appearance of several symptoms such as vomiting, headache, etc. Sudden sensitivity to smell, sound, and light or disturbed vision may also happen due to a migraine.
These migraine attacks may turn severe and sometimes it may take days, for the pain to go away. The symptoms and the cycle or duration of headaches varies from person to person and in between two attacks, all these symptoms may remain non-existent, but still, this malady influences both personal and professional life.
What causes Migraine?
In order to cure a migraine, the very first step that should be taken is to learn the causes behind it or what triggers it. Even though specific reason behind its cause is still vague, but a specific type of migraine with aura is passed down genetically.
Apart from that, stress or anxieties, lack of sleep, improper diet, hormonal changes in women, etc. trigger a migraine in most cases. Thorough research over the years has disclosed that food and migraine attacks are interlinked to a great extent. Proper healthy diet may aid to prevent a migraine, whereas some food may trigger the pain attack.
Migraine Diet: Pain-Safe Foods
Pain-safe foods normally never contribute to headaches or any painful conditions. These include:
Well cooked green vegetables, such as broccoli or spinach
Well cooked orange vegetables, such as carrots or even sweet potatoes
Dried non-citrus fruits: cherries, cranberries, pears.
Clean Water: Plain water or carbonated forms. Other beverages-even herbal teas-can be triggers.
Common triggers periodically cause headaches in susceptible people. Just as some food sensitivities manifest as a rash on all your skin, migraine sufferers have a reaction in the blood vessels and nerves.
Below are the common food triggers for migraine:
wheat (bread, pasta, etc.)
nuts and peanuts
* Include skim or whole cow’s milk, goat’s milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.
Foods that are neither on the pain-safe list nor the common trigger list should be considered possible, but unlikely, triggers. Almost any common food, other than the pain-safe list, has triggered migraine in an isolated individual in a research study, so they cannot be considered completely above suspicion, but they are far from the most likely culprit.
If you know you have so much migraine recently, you should get yourself away from much thinking and have some good sleep. You should be fine by the time you are awake. Also try to take much of water (Clean water) and be sure you take a lot of rest. If you are still feeling the malady, do not hesitate to visit your doctor for a proper checkup.
