10 most common causes of migraine

Today we are living in world which is going faster and making lot of impacts on our health

headache seems to be day to day problem … but wait is it headache or migraine .
lets tri to understand it But there is a thin line of demarcation between the two.
What's a migraine? Migraine is a throbbing headache, usually on one side of the head, caused by the narrowing and dilating of blood vessels on one side of the brain. An attack may last upto two days.

There are two main types of migraine:

Common: A slowly developing severe headache, lasting from a few hours to two days, made worse by the smallest movement or noise, accompanied by nausea and sometimes vomiting.

Classical: Headache preceded by an aura which generally takes the form of a visual disturbance.
This may consist of: A temporary loss of vision, focusing problems, blind spots and flashing lights.
Possible speech problems.
Occasional weakness or temporary paralysis of the limbs or extremities.
Nausea and vomiting.
Sensitivity to light.
What's a headache? Headaches, on the other hand, are a common complaint. For the most part, they happen because of muscular tension in the head, neck or shoulder or due to congestion of the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain and muscles. Generally, there is a sensation of a tight band around the head, a feeling of pressure at the top of the head, a bursting and throbbing sensation, eye and neck pain, dizziness.

Here are some causes are known to precipitate migraines and headaches:
Ø Hereditary
Ø Fatigue
Ø Exercise
Ø Sleep deprivation
Ø Bright lights
Ø Head trauma
Ø Infection
Ø Menstruation
Ø Oral contraceptives
Ø Hormonal changes
Ø Stress
Ø Tiredness
Ø Poor posture
Ø Caffeine
Ø Alcohol
Ø Drugs
Ø Food allergy
Ø Eye strain
Ø Sinusitus
Ø Low blood sugar
Ø Head injury

Here are the top 10 causes of migraine :

1. Stress. Stress is easily one of the most common causes of headaches. The best way to reduce headaches caused by stress is to work out or meditate to relax your nerves and keep your stress levels at a minimum.Tension headaches, the most common kind, are brought on by either physical or emotional stress. One of the most frequent causes of physical stress is spending too much uninterrupted time staring at the computer. Take breaks every half hour to stretch and look in the distance. Emotional stress may not be so easy to eliminate.

2. Eating. today we become fast food eaters healty diet is much far from us it seems Your eating habits can have a huge impact on your health. Choosing to eat unhealthy foods like chips, chocolate and processed meats and cheeses will increase the likeliness that you'll suffer from headaches. Eating fresh vegetables and fruits and drinking lots of water will help to prevent headaches.

3. Eye Strain.long use sitting infornt of latops and pc can triiger it Eye strain is often associated with headaches. Squinting your eyes for an extended period of time (or exposing your eyes to fluorescent lighting) can impact the nerves in your head and trigger headaches. If you're working on a computer, try using an anti-glare screen or ask your doctor for an anti-glare prescription for your glasses.

4. Lack of Sleep. most important cause I feel today’s world role we are working in sleeping hours and sleeping in working time Getting less than 7 hours of sleep a night can trigger a headache. Your body needs at least 7 hours of sleep to function.

5. Too Much Sleep. Getting less than 7 hours of sleep a night can spark headaches but getting more than 11 hours of sleep can have the same effect. 8-10 hours of restorative sleep a night is ideal.

6. Hunger and hypoglycemic headaches Fasting and consequent low blood sugar levels may trigger headaches in patients with migraine. Avoid consuming anything high or rich in carbohydrates. Else, it could result in a rapid secretion of insulin, thus lowering blood sugar levels.

7. Smoke. Smoke is a leading cause of headaches. While this is common knowledge for most people, what some don't realize is that individuals who don't smoke can still be severely affected by it and can ultimately suffer from headaches because of second-hand smoke. EXPOSURE TO SECOND-HAND SMOKE:Cigarette smoke is a common trigger of migraine headaches. Try to stay in a non-smoking environment. If you can't avoid the smoke, try putting some peppermint oil on your pulse points to detract from the smell.

8. Loud Noise. Any type of loud noise can trigger a headache. Likewise, being around loud noise will make it extremely difficult to get rid of a headache.

9. Alcoholic beverages. Some believe grapes that are organically grown and wines that are free of sulfites are less likely to trigger headaches. Stress may act as a secondary trigger in some situations. A person who suffers from migraines and is exposed to a stressful and tiring work environment may complain of an inability to tolerate wine, whereas the same person on a relaxing vacation may drink and enjoy the same wine without suffering headaches. Hangover.Many would agree that a headache caused by a hangover is self-induce

10. PAIN MEDICATIONS: Ironic but true. Half of chronic migraines, and as many as 25 percent of all headaches, are actually "rebound" episodes triggered by the overuse of common pain medications. Medication Side Effects. Headaches are a common side effect of most medications. If you need the medication, there's really no way of getting around the side effects.

A Few more cause are followingsL:

WEATHER OR CHANGE IN ALTITUDE: Changes in weather, especially sharp dips in barometric pressure, can cause headaches. Even a visit to a town or city that is at a higher elevation than where you currently live can bring on an episode.

HORMONES: The hormones estrogen and progesterone affect headache-related chemicals in the brain. Higher estrogen levels may improve headaches, while lower estrogen levels can make headaches worse.

SINUSES: Dry sinuses or congested sinuses can cause headaches. These headaches come with deep and constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead or bridge of the nose. The pain usually intensifies with sudden head movement.

DEHYDRATION: This may be the most common cause of a headache. Your body is made up of roughly 60% water and requires a generous amount of water intake. Adults should be drinking about 8 to 10 glasses of water a day for proper hydration. Be aware that coffee and sodas are often dehydrating.
Hunger and hypoglycemic headaches Fasting and consequent low blood sugar levels may trigger headaches in patients with migraine.Avoid consuming anything high or rich in carbohydrates. Else, it could result in a rapid secretion of insulin, thus lowering blood sugar levels.

Homeopathy Approach :

Homeopathy has always cured so many cases of migraine I have my personal experience in curing migraine so nicely with homeopathy

In other systems they called it incurable but in homeopathy its curable.Migraine is one of the diseases for which homeopathy can positively do something. Here there is another special significance.

In Allopathic medicine there is no remedy for this disease. So it is common to find patients coming for homeopathy treatment after suffering for 10 to 15 years, despite allopathic treatment. And Homeopathy does wonders for the migraine, where patient has no other option.
As I always says Consult a Qualified Homeopathy Doctor for the appropriate treatment. For chronic & acute conditions patient needs constitutional treatment to reduce the recurrence of attacks and pain
here few therapeutic index i had taken from Nash which really helped me lot in acute condition,but remember its constitutional which works well .

Here are few from Nash therapeutics book.

This is what Kent says about Sulphur headache.

The Sulphur patient is subject to periodical sick headaches; congestive headaches, a sensation of great congestion with stupefaction, attended with nausea and vomiting. Sick headache once a week or every two weeks, the characteristic seven-day aggravation.

Most headaches coming on Sunday in working men are cured by Sulphur. You can figure this out. Sunday is the only day he does not work, and he sleeps late in the morning and gets up with a headache that involves the whole head, with dullness and congestion. Being busy and active prevents the headache during the week.

Others have periodical headaches every seven to ten days, with nausea and vomiting of bile. Again he may have a headache lasting two or three days; a congestive headache. Headache with nausea and no vomiting or headache with vomiting of bile. The headache is aggravated by stooping, generally ameliorated in a warm room and by the application of warmth; aggravated from light, hence the desire to close the eyes and to go into dark room; aggravated by jarring, and after eating.

The whole head is sensitive and the eyes are red, and there is often lachrymation, with nausea and vomiting. Headaches at times in those who suffer constantly from great heat in the vertex; the top of the head is hot and burns and he wants cold cloths applied to the top of the head. These headaches associated with heat are often ameliorated by cold, but otherwise the head is ameliorated in a warm room.

The head feels stupid and sometimes he cannot think. Every motion aggravates and he is worse after eating and drinking, worse from taking cold drinks into the stomach and better from hot drinks. When the headaches are present the face is engorged; bright red face. Headaches in persons who have a red face, a dirty face or sallow, a venous stasis of the face; the eyes are engorged and the skin is engorged; the face is puffed and venous in appearance.

Sulphur is useful in persons who get up in the morning with headache, dizziness and red face; in persons who say they know they are going to have the headache some time during the day because the face feels very full and is red in the morning, and the eyes are red.

Before the headache comes on there is a flickering before the eyes, a flickering of color. Scintillations, stars, saw teeth, zig-zags are forewarnings of a headache. Some Sulphur headaches that I have known present a peculiar appearance before the eyes; a rhomboidal figure, obliquely placed, with saw teeth on the upper side and the body filled with spots.

Sometimes this figure is seen toward one side of the object looked at, sometimes on the other side, but it is seen equally distinct with both eyes at the same time.

These saw teeth are flashes of light, and the base of the figure grows increasingly darker until you get all the colors of the rainbow. Whenever he disorders his stomach he has this peculiar vision. Sometimes it comes in the morning after eating and sometimes at noon after eating. It comes also when be is hungry in the evening and delays his eating. These zig-zags come very often with that hungry all-gone feeling in the stomach.

We have the same state of affairs, similar appearance of zig-zags and flickerings in both Natrum muriaticum and Psorinum before the headache. They are warning of headaches. These zig-zags, flickerings, sparks, stars and irregular shapes appear before the eye periodically, and may last an hour or so. In the head there is much throbbing. Morning headaches and headaches coming on at noon. Headaches also, as mentioned before that begin after the -evening meal and increase into the night, hindering sleep.

We can't ignore Sulphur in migraines.

If the patient is anemic and gets these bouts in the morning, which last for a couple of days without let up, Ferrum met helps. I personally verified this.
