More Information

What is a migraine?

A migraine is a neurological disorder that can be characterised by recurring episodes of moderate to severe headaches. Typically, a migraine will affect one side of the head more than the other or it will affect the eyes. Migraines are also accompanied by other symptoms including nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can be very debilitating and can severely impact a person’s quality of life. Thankfully, there are a number of treatment options that can manage symptoms to allow people suffering to find relief.  

What causes a migraine?

The exact cause of migraines is not fully understood. Research has suggested that there could be a number of different factors that can trigger a migraine in a person and that some people are much more likely to suffer from migraines than others. It is also thought that migraines are triggered by genetic, environmental and neurological factors. Because of this, it can be hard for a doctor to pinpoint the exact cause of repeated migraines, which can make treatment difficult. Here are some factors that many believe contribute to migraines:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle
  • Lack of sleep or changes in sleep patterns
  • Exposure to bright lights, loud noises, or strong smells
  • Changes in weather
  • Certain foods and drinks, particularly alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, and cheese
  • Physical exertion or overexertion

It should be noted that not all migraines will be caused by these factors mentioned above, and if you are struggling with repetitive migraines you should speak to a healthcare professional for further advice.

How can I treat a migraine?

Treating a migraine can be very difficult, especially if they are repetitive without showing a pattern. Typically, the best treatment for the occasional migraine will be to sit in a dark room and try to sleep it off. There are, however, very effective medications that can help people that suffer from migraines. Over-the-counter painkillers typically will not be very effective at treating migraines so people will typically need more specialised medications.
