How are migraines generated and what is an affective treatment?
Recently I am suffering from severe migraines, I am aware that migraines effect women more then men, but is there any absolute cause or an affective treatment?
migraines have a variety of triggers and you have to find what triggers yours before you can really find an effective treatment. When I had them years ago I had to overhaul my diet. Sweetener and preservatives etc. triggered them. When I got ride of processed garbage out of my food supply, the headaches went away. I went from having several a month, to maybe one or two a year. when I have the odd one now, it is typically hormonal or due to some stressful event or something.
No - there is no absolute cause. I am sorry. I have been getting them for 17 some years now. Migraine is a progressive neurological disease. Early treatment generally means a better outcome in the long run.
some good sites:
I use all of those sites a lot.
Preventatives include anti-depressants, blood pressure medications, anti spasmodic, anti epilepsy drugs and others. There is a lot of thought that migraines are similar in origin to epilepsy.
Supplements work well for me. I am on 400 mg magnesium, 60 mg CoQ10, and 200 mg vitamin B2. What has worked though has changed over there years.
The best book on migraine is http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ … migrais-20
