Signs and Symptoms of a Migraine


If you have ever had a migraine it may have been one of the worst experiences of your life. You feel as though you want to die, literally. It is such an unbearable feeling that you just want to curl up under the covers with the light off away from the world.

Migraines are caused when the serotonin in your body drops and your blood vessels swell. Migraine can affect your daily activities, such as enjoying a night out with a Romford escort, if you aren't able to get them under control.

There are two types of migraine: classic and common.

With classic migraines you may get warning signs such as flashing colours or lights and you may lose part of your vision temporarily. You may get burning sensations and muscle weakness. This type of migraine makes you feel irritable, depressed, and restless. You may also have some trouble communicating.

Classic migraines can start on one side of the head or both. They can include mood swings, food cravings, intense energy or fatigue.

With common migraines the pain may only be on one side of your head. They start a lot slower than classic migraines and lasts a lot longer.

Here are some ways in which you can identify migraines: nausea, vomiting, feeling cold, feeling sweaty, throbbing pain (intense or dull) on the side or sides of your head, enhanced pain during physical activity, blurred vision, blind spots, light, odours and noise affect you, tiredness feeling confused, tender scalp, light-headedness, tender or stiff neck or a blocked nose.

Migraines can affect you daily and lasts from 4 to 72 hours.

There are quite a number of things that can set off a migraine. A change in your sleeping pattern, missing meals, intense physical activity, changes in the weather, bright lights, loud noises, unusual odours, depression, tiredness, stress, types of food such as avocado's and dairy products, fumes and smoking.

In order to reduce a migraine you can place a compress (cold) or a cloth on your forehead, find a dark quiet room to lie down in, preferable with one of the Romford escorts to help soothe you, using pressure, massage your scalp and apply pressure to your temples. Migraines can also be treated using medication that is prescribed by your doctor.

To prevent migraines from re-occurring, avoid foods and other things that can trigger them. Keeping a journal is a helpful way in identifying what those triggers are. Relax and de-stress from life's worries as well as getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of fluids. Exercise such as aerobics can help reduce tension as well as keeping your body healthy since obesity can also contribute to migraines.
