    HOW TO PREVENT MIGRAINE HEADACHE

    Migraine is a medical condition. Most people who suffer from migraines get headaches that can be quite severe. A migraine headache is usually an intense, throbbing pain on one, or sometimes, both sides of the head.

    Most people with migraine headache feel the pain in the temples or behind one eye or ear, although any part of the head can be involved. Besides pain, migraine also can cause nausea and vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. Some people also may see spots or flashing lights or have a temporary loss of vision.

    Migraine can occur any time of the day, though it often starts in the morning. The pain can last a few hours or up to one or two days. Some people get migraines once or twice a week. Others, only once or twice a year. Most of the time, migraines are not a threat to your overall health. But migraine attacks can interfere with your day-to-day life.

    We don’t know what causes migraine, but some things are more common in people who have them:

    Most often, migraine affects people between the ages of 15 and 55.
    Most people have a family history of migraine or disabling headache.
    They are more common in women.
    Migraine often becomes less severe and less frequent with age.

    HOW STRESS CAN TRIGGER MIGRAINE HEADACHE

    Stress can trigger both migraine and tension-type headache. Events like getting married, moving to a new home, or having a baby can cause stress. But studies show that everyday stresses — not major life changes — cause most headaches. Juggling many roles, such as being a mother and wife, having a career, and financial pressures can be daily stresses for women.

    Making time for yourself and finding healthy ways to deal with stress are important. Some things you can do to help prevent or reduce stress include:

    1. Eating healthy foods
    2. Being active (at least 30 minutes most days of the week is best)
    3. Doing relaxation exercises
    4. Getting enough sleep
    5. Try to figure out what causes you to feel stressed. You may be able to cut out some of these stressors. For example, if driving to work is stressful, try taking the bus or subway. You can take this time to read or listen to music, rather than deal with traffic. For stressors you can’t avoid, keeping organized and doing as much as you can ahead of time will help you to feel in control.

    HOW TO PREVENT MIGRAINE HEADACHE

    The best way to prevent migraine is to find out what triggers your attacks and avoid or limit these triggers. Since migraine headaches are more common during times of stress, finding healthy ways to cut down on and cope with stress might help. Talk with your doctor about starting a fitness program or taking a class to learn relaxation skills.

    Talk with your doctor if you need to take your pain-relief medicine more than twice a week. Doing so can lead to rebound headaches. If your doctor has prescribed medicine for you to help prevent migraine, take them exactly as prescribed. Ask what you should do if you miss a dose and how long you should take the medicine.

    Talk with your doctor if the amount of medicine you are prescribed is not helping your headaches.
