A migraine is a headache that is stronger than average and is felt in different parts of the head. It can sometimes come with nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. For some it lasts half a day for others it can 2, 3 or more days.
If you’re wondering whether you get migraines or not, chances are you don’t get them. Migraines are different from regular headaches and if you get one, you most likely know you did.
Migraines can be triggered by a number of things:
If you’re prone to migraine headaches, your symptoms may be more severe during allergy season. People can also have triggers like perfume, the smell of gasoline, cigarette smoke, and weather changes.
Stress is a factor with migraine
Stress can be a migraine trigger. Keep a good work-life balance, and get plenty of exercise to avoid stress.
Food can cause migraines too
Some food is known to be a trigger for migraines. However, if your diet is pretty stable and your migraines come and go, it’s not likely to be a food problem. That said it’s ideal to avoid commonly known triggers like cheese, chocolate, MSG and additives (E-numbers).
Hormonal changes can be a cause too
Sometimes migraines can be caused by hormones. This type of migraine is less predictable and will hit only at certain stages of your life when you experience hormonal changes. It’s a little trickier because you need the help of a doctor to tackle your hormonal imbalance.
No matter which type of migraine you tend to get, it has been proven that your migraine will be worsened or triggered by allergens. The link is complex. Doctors are still trying to figure it out. So far, they know that your nervous system, endocrine (hormonal) system and immune system all play a role.
People who are prone to migraines have a sensitive nervous system. They overreact quickly to changes in their environment that their body perceives as a threat.
Exposure to allergens also triggers your immune system and releases certain chemicals in the body. These can fuel inflammation throughout your body, which sets you up for a migraine.
In fact, if you get migraines, you probably noticed that your migraines worsen during allergy season.
