A migraine headache is often characterized by throbbing pain on one side of the head. Migraine management will assist you in reducing symptoms and avoiding recurrent episodes.
Migraines are a type of headaches that are accompanied with other symptoms that usually start off mild and then worsen. It can affect both adults and children. However, it is more common in women than men.
Migraine episodes can be prevented by avoiding the triggers. Identifying triggers can be accomplished by keeping a “migraine calendar” in which you record every time you have a migraine attack and what you did or ate before it began.
Common triggers include:
There are different medication options available that can help with migraines depending on each case.
Do not try to treat frequent migraines on your own with non-prescription pain medicines.
Inform your doctor before you start trying. Some medicines used to treat and prevent migraines are not safe during pregnancy, so you might need to switch medicines before you get pregnant.
