Migrane Headaches..Please Tell us About Yours...

Headache and migrane headaches.

If your head hurts everything pretty much hurts doesn't it? Although there're a number of different causes or triggers for headaches the two most frequent types are tension headaches and migraine headaches. Seventy five million or so suffer with one or the other and some migrainures have both to deal with. 

Many of the same migraine triggers apply to both tension headaches and migraines, and supplements to treat them are similar.

What can cause migraine headaches.

Migraine headaches begin to throb when blood vessels in the head expand more than normal. Often this is because of:

Migraines are characterized by throbbing pounding and often disabling pain on one side of the head, and may or not be preceded by an aura (visual disturbance). If nausea and vomiting accompany this headache, it's a migraine. The migraine pain can last for several hours to days.

Tension headache vs migrane headaches.

As the name applies tension headaches usually stem from tension in the muscles of the:

  • Face 
  • Neck 
  • Scalp 

These are due to stress and anxiety. The muscles squeeze the nerves and constrict the blood supply thus causing pain and pressure. Tension headaches can be triggered as in migraines by:

  • Stress, and to much light or sound. 
  • Eyestrain, poor posture and grinding of the teeth can also cause these headaches.

The pain is dull and steady and feels like a band squeezing the head.

Migrane headaches are treated by these supplements.

On the market today are such products as MigreLief with combinations of herbs, vitamins, and magnesium that specificity targets migraines to give relief. They are:

  • Feverfew reduces frequency and intensity of headaches.
  • Butterbur in studies has been as effective as some conventional migraine preventives.
  • Ginger is an anti-inflammatory agent that can be effective for treating migraines and the symptom of nausea.
  • Vitamins B-2 and B-3 
  •  Low Magnesium levels triggers both migraines and tension headaches.
  • 5_htp raises serotonin levels to relive headaches.
  • Skullcap helps to ease tension headaches. Migrainures tend to also have these overlap with their migraines.
  • SAMe can help with the prevention of migraines but has to be taken for about six weeks to give the full benefit. 

Any of these can be found in Amazon. Herbs have been used many years before conventional medicines came about.

For relief of migrane headaches go by the book. Learn them, avoid what can cause them, take the above supplements if conventional medicines can't be taken or not desired to be consumed. Don't slide into the rebound trap. It's easy to do.
