Frequently Asked Questions

Migraine is a type of headache that falls within the moderate to severe intensity range and is often characterized by throbbing pain localized on one side of the head. These migraines occur in episodes, lasting for hours or even days, with complete resolution of symptoms between attacks.

In addition to the intense head pain, many individuals may also encounter the following accompanying symptoms:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Heightened sensitivity to light, sounds, or smells

Typically, migraines begin to manifest in early adulthood and reach their peak prevalence during a person’s thirties.

The precise underlying causes of migraines remain incompletely understood; however, a combination of genetic factors, environmental influences, and imbalances in brain chemicals like serotonin are believed to contribute to their occurrence.

While migraines are not classified as a strictly inherited condition, they often cluster within families. Consequently, if you have one or more close relatives with a history of migraines, you may have a higher likelihood of developing migraines as well.

Certain individuals associate their migraine attacks with specific triggers, which can encompass:

  • Hormonal changes – such as those occurring during pregnancy, menopause, menstrual cycle alterations, or hormonal treatments like contraception.
    Stress or anxiety – with approximately 80% of migraines being triggered by stress at work or home.
  • Fatigue (tiredness) – resulting from physical exertion, lack of sleep, or jet lag.
  • Beverages – particularly alcohol (especially wine) and caffeine.
  • Foods and food additives – including salty processed foods, monosodium glutamate (MSG), and the sweetener Aspartame.
  • Low blood sugar – often brought on by skipping meals or fasting.
  • Environmental factors – such as exposure to strong smells, bright lights, or loud noises.

It is crucial to recognize that these triggers can vary significantly between individuals. If you identify specific triggers that seem to initiate your migraines, it is advisable to make a conscious effort to avoid them whenever possible.

Regrettably, there is currently no definitive cure for migraines. Nevertheless, various treatments are accessible to aid in symptom management.

When it comes to addressing acute migraine attacks, there are four categories of medicines commonly employed:

  • Simple painkillers, such as paracetamol.
  • Anti-inflammatory painkillers, like ibuprofen and aspirin.
  • Triptan medications.
  • Anti-sickness medications, such as Stemetil.

By utilizing these medications judiciously, individuals can find relief and better manage the impact of migraine episodes.

Fluctuations in hormones can have an impact on migraines – sometimes leading to improvements, while other times worsening the condition.

It is crucial to note that most medications utilized to manage acute migraine episodes should be avoided if you are pregnant, attempting to conceive, or breastfeeding. For personalized advice and guidance, it is essential to directly consult with a healthcare professional. This platform is not suitable for providing such specialized medical advice.
