Migraine Triggers

The pharmaceutical companies also have it all their own way because they think they can control us with an expensive pill. But, there are other methods of healing the body. So, this forum is for health issues and promoting healthy living.

Migraine Triggers

Migraine Triggers

Millions of days are lost at work through people having the time off due to people with migraines.

Migraine can be triggered by many things and varies from person to person.
After the latest study, they have found that coffee or at least the caffeine in it is not the main culprit.

Chocolate, cheese and coffee were always to blame but now they have found that some things like coffee can prevent migraine.
Tyramine found in cheese can trigger a migraine but can prevent an attack in more people.

What the latest study shows us is that while many of the old culprits still can cause you to have a migraine attack, they can also be a preventive for others.

So nothing really conclusive comes out of the study.
The best way to manage your own migraine might be to keep a diary of all the food you eat or drink and find out what could start your migraine off.
In other words, managing your migraine is better left to yourself.

I get migraines which affect my sight with a sort of kaleidoscope effect.
It doesn't last long but up to now I have never found what triggers it.
I have just been diagnosed and I think they referred to it as optical migraine or ocular migraine.
After doing some research online it could also be called "retinal" or "ophthalmic".
I don't get a headache with it but it can blur my vision for up to 30 minutes.
I think I will start my own diary now as I haven't had a migraine for months and maybe one is due.

My missus used to get migraines and I never understood it until I started to get them.
They disable you for a while without doubt.

One study will reveal one thing and another study will reveal another.
I have no faith in any study to be honest.
I believe that people should know what is right for them.
The problem with that is people know smoking is bad for them but it doesn't stop them from smoking.

With them studies its only a handful of people and we are all built differently.
We all react to certain things.

As long as they don't say that milk triggers migraine they can say what they like.
I feel sorry for those who suffer migraines though because my mate suffers from them and it cripples him for quite some time.

Migraines are weird things they can attack at any time - the people I know who get them make a meal of it.
Keep the bastards honest.

I get the odd migraine but I have never sussed out what might trigger it.
It comes about once a month but I have a little warning first.

I see people who say they have migraines and I never really understood it.
I always just thought they were just bad headaches but apparently there is more to them :?
