Migraines will often present on one side of the head and may be aggravated by movement.
A migraine attack can last anywhere from several hours up to several days. You might experience migraines frequently or maybe only a few times per year.
There are many different triggers for migraines, including alcohol, caffeine, stress, strong smells, bright lights, sleep deprivation or too much sleep, illness, skipping meals, emotional triggers, changes in weather, changes to routine, medications, particular foods, dehydration and hormonal changes in women.
Certain lifestyle changes can help to prevent migraines, including: maintaining regular sleep patterns; exercising regularly to maintain your health; eating regular meals; actively reducing stress; and avoiding known triggers such as certain foods, alcohol, caffeine, or environmental triggers.
Keep a migraine diary, so that when you experience an attack you can document what may have caused it. For example, maybe you had a glass of red wine, or skipped a meal. As you start cataloguing the circumstances surrounding your migraine episodes, you may find trigger patterns and have more of an idea of what to avoid.
Preventive and acute treatments are available for migraine. Your doctor will help identify the appropriate treatment for you.
