Migraine

About Migraine

According to the Migraine Research Foundation, about 36 million Americans suffer from debilitating migraines. This neurological condition can cause severe symptoms, disrupt daily activities, and even lead to hospitalization.

MIGRAINE Causes

What causes migraines is not clear, though many studies found migraines to be caused by genetics. Instead, experts have determined possible triggers for this condition, including:

  • Hormonal changes (in women), especially estrogen
  • Hormonal contraceptives
  • Alcoholic drinks, such as wine and beer.
  • Stress
  • Overstimulating sensations such as exposure to bright light or strong smells like paint thinners, cigarette smoke, and perfumes.
  • Sleep pattern change or insomnia
  • Intense physical activities, like sexual intercourse and exercise
