Migraines are defined as headaches that are moderate to severe in intensity, often on one side of the head, typically associated with other symptoms such as light sensitivity, nausea, or vomiting, One interesting thing to note is that a hallmark of migraine is that it is more likely to happen after a stressful event—we call it a let-down headache or weekend headache. It always happens when a person is under stress their body produces cortisol to get through the event. For those who can't take medications or aren't happy with them, a few supplements also show promise for preventing migraine headaches. "In my own practice, I recommend these if there are at least two well-controlled clinical trials showing benefits," says Sarah DeRossett, MD, a neurologist and migraine specialist in Atlanta. "Magnesium, riboflavin (vitamin B-2), and coenzyme Q10 all fit those criteria.
Identifying which type of pain you have is the first step in taking control:
Acute pain comes on suddenly. It can be brief or last for weeks or months. Acute pain goes away once
the cause has been treated. Chronic pain is ongoing. It may result from an injury or infection or be psychogenic, meaning it’s unrelated to injury. Chronic pain persists for months or years and affects your physical and emotional well-being.
Tips for preventing chronic pain:
- Stay Hydrated
- Food to Eat (Include leafy greens, fruits and soy products.)
