Is It A Migraine? Headache? Why Am I Having These?

Is It A Migraine? Headache? Why Am I Having These?

More than 150 types of headaches exist and are categorized as primary or secondary. Primary headaches have no underlying medical condition and examples include tension headaches and migraines. Conversely, secondary headaches are a symptom of some other root cause like a head injury, caffeine withdrawal or medication overuse. Most headache pain subsides within a few hours; however, sometimes it can last for days.

Migraines are a type of headache that can cause throbbing pain that varies in intensity. A migraine can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. The most common symptoms of a migraine are nausea and sensitivity to light. This type of pain can lead to foggy thinking, dizziness, and can be completely debilitating.

Common Causes of Migraines:

  • Changes in brain chemical serotonin
  • Vascular constriction in your brain
  • Excessive blood flow to the brain
  • A neurological disorder
  • Nervous System tension
  • Disruption in neuronal energies
  • Genetic mutations

Migraine Triggers:

  • Caffeine Withdrawal
  • Diet
  • Environmental Issues
  • Hormone Fluctuations
  • Stress
  • Lack of Sleep

It is important to take a comprehensive approach to get relief from migraines. This includes testing and evaluating for any vitamin and mineral deficiencies and assessing other triggers. Creating a multi-step approach will allow one to become aware of their cellular causes and triggers to decrease the severity and occurrence of migraines.
