What Exactly Are Migraines?
A migraine is marked by moderate to severe pain and throbbing in the head, and can be accompanied by nausea as well as sensitivity to light and sounds. In some cases, these painful headaches are preceded or accompanied by a sensory warning sign, such as flashes of light, blind spots or tingling in your arm or leg.
Fortunately, management of migraine pain has improved dramatically in the last decade. Although there's still no cure, medications are now much more effective. Additionally, alternative treatments like massage and essential oils have been found to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
What Are The Most Common Causes?
The exact causes of migraines aren’t well understood, there is research that has found that many people have some common triggers, including food allergies, caffeine addiction, environmental stimulation, emotional and physical stress and hormonal imbalance.
