    Migraine is a kind of headache which has broader effect than the normal headache. Often, people get confused
     and correlate headache and migraine in the same category but it is not like that. A cluster migraine headache
                                            crisis lasts 30 to 90 minutes

                                                Best Ten Ways To Avoid Migraines
                                                             By James Mahony

   The problem with migraine prevention is that there isn’t just one cause for the headaches. There
are very many triggers for migraines, in fact, and trying to avoid them all would be an exercise in
hermitry. Who wants to spend the rest of their life living in a cave just to avoid headaches? That being
said, there are a few things you can do to avoid migraines and here are the top ten.

1) Cut the caffeine. Among the multitude of products linked to migraines is caffeine. Taking in too much
can lead to a headache of monstrous proportions. Unfortunately, it’s not only too much caffeine that
lead to a headache, it’s caffeine withdrawal if you’re used to taking in a lot. Best to cut back slowly.

2) While we’re talking about caffeine, let’s also talk about NutraSweet. Aspartame has been the culprit
for many people who have complained of migraines. Go in search of why aspartame causes migraines
and you will run into what seems like the biggest cover-up since Roswell. Most of what you’ll read
hasn’t been proven, but then again neither have the makers of NutraSweet proven that their product
doesn’t contribute to migraines. Avoid it and you may well avoid a horrendous headache.

3) There are more reasons to give up smoking than you can count, but avoiding migraines is another
reason to put on the list. Of course, that’s easier than said than done if you are the smoker, but
remember, secondhand smoke is just as likely to cause a migraine headache as actual smoking. So if
you can, remove yourself from the environment in which people are smoking. Better yet: Get them to
remove themselves. You do have the right to not have to be around their smoke, especially if their
smoke is causing your headaches.

4) Establish a regular pattern of sleeping and waking. In fact, get as anal-retentive as you can about
this. A regular pattern of going to bed at the same time and getting up at the same time, on weekends
as well as weekdays, can do wonders. Many people who have instituted a rigid routine of sleeping and
waking have discovered that their migraines disappear completely and forever. Or at least as long as
they continue the pattern.

5) Give up the pill and try another form of contraception. Birth control pills and their effects on
hormones can be a major hazard when it comes to migraine pain. You don’t necessarily have to go off
the pill entirely. Some people have found that merely changing brands puts an end to their migraine
misery. If that doesn’t help, however, you may look into other forms of female contraception or, if you

6) Change your lighting. Very bright lights can often trigger very severe migraines. You might consider
using the softer, filmy kind of light bulbs. Or use lamps instead of overhead lights. Or stop using
fluorescent lighting, if that’s possible. If you spend a lot of time at the computer monitor, take frequent
breaks and get as far away from the pulsating waves of the monitor as possible.

7) Cheese, chocolate and wine may sound like the ideal ingredients for a romantic picnic, but if you are
prone to migraines the last thing you may be feeling is romantic following that afternoon getaway. Aged
cheeses especially are dangerous because they contain the amino acid tyramine. Chocolate contains
phenylethamine. Both chemicals contribute to migraines and alcohol is a trigger as well. Stay away
from all three and find other ways to get in a romantic mood.

8) Use body wash to smell good instead of perfume or cologne. Odors and aromas are major causes
of migraines and those that make you smell good are among the worst. Keep yourself clean instead of
daubing with the smelly-goods.

9) Being an aerobic exercise program. Exercising regularly helps to increase your cardiovascular
capacity and improper blood flow is linked to recurrent migraines.

10) Driver or take a train when you can instead of flying. The lowering of cabin pressure on airplanes is
a sure-fire migraine trigger and one easily avoided when the trip can be made by alternative means of

                                                            What Are Migraines?
                                                              By Niall Roche

 If someone has ever mentioned having a migraine and you responded with a comment about it just
being a headache, then you've been fortunate enough to never have suffered from a migraine -
otherwise you'd never make that comment in the first place. A migraine does more than cause a bit of
pain in your temples or that spot over the bridge of your nose where you get a sinus headache. This
nervous system disease saps your strength, causes nausea and even makes the sufferer unable to
see properly.

If you're thinking that migraines aren't very common, these statistics may surprise you: * In developed
areas, migraines are as much as 300 to 500 percent more common than in third world and Asian
countries. * More than 500,000,000 (five hundred million) people have migraines every year.

Since millions of people worldwide suffer from migraines each year, this disease is actually fairly
serious. A migraine is not just a little headache - they cause people to lose work time, miss out on
family events and generally enjoy life less than people who don't get them.

So what exactly are migraine headaches and where do they come from?

There are actually two types of migraines. If you've been suffering from migraines and have a common
migraine, it hits without warning. If you have a classic migraine, you do get some warning that it is
coming, but the warning isn't a nice one and is almost as bad as the headache itself. Anywhere from
ten to thirty minutes before the actual headache hits, people who suffer from classic migraines will
have something called an aura. Auras can include many symptoms, but visual difficulties, such as
flashing lights, zig-zag lines and temporary loss of vision, are the most common warning signs. Other
aura symptoms are difficulty with speech, feeling confused, tingling in the face or hands and weakness
in arms or legs.

Migraine sufferers don't always feel pain on both sides of their heads. This is because these
headaches are unilateral, or on one side. Most people develop a headache around one eye or one side
of their jaw and neck. As the migraine persists, it will envelope the rest of that side of the head. During
a bad migraine, noise or light can worsen the pain and the sufferer may vomit from the pain they

Another term for a migraine is vascular headache. This means that the headache happens because
the blood vessels around and inside your skull change their shape and size. This is what actually
causes the migraine pain and what makes it so difficult to treat at times.

Children rarely suffer from migraines. Teen boys develop migraines earlier than girls who will
eventually suffer from this disease. However, in later years, women will be more likely to develop
migraines than men. The good news is that, for many people, episodes of this nervous system disease
eventually becomes less intense and less frequent. The bad news is that migraines can last for quite
some time. There have been cases where these headaches lasted for as long as two weeks, although
a range of a few hours to two days is more common. Some people have migraines several times a
week, while others only have two or three episodes a year.

Finally, although more than one person has feared that the terrible pain of a migraine is because of a
brain tumor, migraines are not caused by an underlying disease. They are very painful and
dehabilitating while they are happening, but they aren't fatal at all.
