Migraines are not just bad headaches says Professor Anne MacGregor, a specialist in headaches and women’s health.
“If you have throbbing pains, usually on one side of the head, and are bothered by light, feel sick and find daily activities are affected, you have a migraine” she adds. “In fact, just two out of three of these additional symptoms qualify”.
The cause isn’t fully understood, though it can run in families, so there may be a genetic component. Researchers think sufferers have a ‘hyper-excitable’ brain that’s particularly sensitive to certain stimuli. “The two most common triggers are dehydration and low blood sugar” says Professor MacGregor.
Other triggers include hormonal changes, worry, excitement, tiredness, neck or shoulder tension, alcohol, caffeine, the food additive tyramine, chocolate, cheese, bright or flickering lights, stuffy rooms, loud noises, some sleeping tablets, the Pill and HRT.
