Intense throbbing pain on one side of your head. Nausea. Increased sensitivity to light and sound. These are symptoms that all migraine sufferers will find familiar. Migraine is a chronic health condition that affects your quality of life much more than other forms of headaches. Unfortunately, there is no cure for such episodes of recurring pain. However, you can reduce your risk of a migraine attack by avoiding the common triggers.
Food & Drinks
Avoid processed or other salty food. Steer clear of monosodium glutamate. And don’t skip meals. Wine, and other alcoholic or caffeinated beverages may also cause an attack.
Rest & Stress
Get just enough rest—not too much and not too little. Try to find an effective method to manage your stress levels. It could be exercise or meditation, or anything that helps.
Just drink up, and eat more food with high water content — like fruits. Migraine triggers may differ from one person to another. Here are a few tips:
- Start by keeping a diary and track everything you do, as well as all the details about your migraine.
- The food you eat.
- The number of hours you sleep.
- The amount of water you drink a day.
- How painful it is, how long it lasted?
- What were you doing prior to the onset of your migraine?
These information will help you and your doctor understand your migraine condition, and better manage it.
