Do you ever have a severe headache? Is it difficult to see outside sometimes to the point of vomiting or too loud noises? So it could be Migraine.
Migraine is a disease that is common among many people in the world today. So there are many reasons for this Migraine to occur.
- Lack of sleep
- Changes in weather
- Hormonal changes
There are many variations like this.
Also, when this Migraine occurs, the headache occurs on one side of the head.
So it’s a very serious headache. We call it a Throbbing Headache. So this shows nausea, vomiting, and high sensitivity to sounds. And there are a number of symptoms like difficulty looking at strong light. Your nervous system has a type of chemical to carry messages between these nerves. We call them Neurotransmitters.
So here is a Neurotransmitter like this Serotonin. So it has been found in the experiments that Serotonin can give great help in producing this Migraine.
When a Migraine Attack occurs, the level of Serotonin decreases in the body. When this Neurotransmitter Serotonin is reduced in the body, the blood supply to certain parts of your head decreases. Then the blood supply increases there. As it narrows, the blood vessel then dilates. Then the blood supply decreases there. Due to the behavior of these blood vessels, severe headaches occur on one side of the head
How to prevent a Migraine Attack?
So when this Migraine attack comes, usually Ibuprofen or Paracetamol-type painkillers are given. You can get these without a doctor’s prescription. Also, triptan-type drugs are given on a doctor’s prescription. Also, medicine is given for things like Nausea and Vomiting that come with Migraines.
So here are the important changes you can make in your lifestyle to prevent Migraines.
