I was reading an interesting hub about things you can do to help alleviate migraine headaches in addition to or instead of regular medication. The topic also came up about what can trigger migraines. Apparently there is no medical evidence for things such as chocolate etc., triggering off migraines. However, I worked with a lady a number of years ago who suffered from terrible migraines and she was adament that eating fruit, especially oranges was a big 'no,no' for her as they triggered off her migraines. Do any hubbers who suffer from migraines have any 'triggers' that they are sure causes their migraine?
I don't get conventional migraines. I get the fuzzy lights at the corners of my eyes and it makes me feel nauseas, but not head pain.(my GP says they're still migraines) It is always stress that triggers this, not food. If I'm worried or get worked up about something I 'll have these episodes.
Hi Hollie, that's interesting about getting the sickness, the lights and so on but not the pain. I don't get migraine's but severe tension headaches - and they can be so bad that I've actually been physically sick with them. I definantely know that, like you, it's stress that can bring mine on, but also in the mornings when I wake up, I can feel one starting and that usually lasts all day. I had one that lasted about 48 hours!
When I was 16/17/18 I got tension headaches all the time, I used to have to hold my head when I walked or moved.(you know that feeling that every time you moved the pain intensified) I'd often go to bed with them, and like you, wake up with them in the morning. But there were no lights or fuzzy images. It appears that this is what those tension headaches have become. I must say though, Seeker7, I prefer them to those awful headaches that can last for so long, as you say.
Headaches can be caused by many things. And different things for different people. Magnesium deficiency is one possibility that can cause headaches. But there are many other possibilities.
You have serious problem. I used to suffer from migraine many years and I can say that was the worse condition - not only pain, but also dizziness, photophobia, nausea and even vomitting - that I've ever had.
For years I haven't feel so poorly. My migraine is off its way. I tried many medications, alternative terapies and nothing worked except homeopathy. Have you ever consider such approach?

Just wondering because I suffer from the horrible condition and had a bad attack last week. The first time it happened to me I thought I was going blind. They can be scary unless you know what is happening.
