When you suffer from migraines, it’s easy to be misunderstood. People who have never had one may find it difficult to understand the severity of them. They can come with little warning and make you feel as if you’ve been plucked out of your day and placed in a dark room until the pain subsides. While each person differs in how treatments affect them, here are a few things you can try if you suffer from migraines.
IV vitamin therapy
IV vitamin therapy has shown to improve multiple ailments such as chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, and migraine headaches. It boosts your immunity by providing your body with nutrients using an IV. If you’ve thought about having this therapy in the past, but don’t like the idea of the IV needles you’ve seen or used before in an emergency room, take the time to talk to the professionals at Laser Skin & Wellness. We use a butterfly needle that is much smaller and painless for some, and we’ll guide you through the process, so you have a smooth and comfortable visit.
Some studies have shown that yoga and meditation can help reduce the pain and regular occurrence of migraines. It is said to calm the nervous system and reduce the stress that can play a role in these headaches. Some people will turn to any form of physical activity to reduce the pain. However, it’s thought that too much aerobic activity can actually trigger migraines in those that have the most severe symptoms.
When you think of Botox®, you might immediately think of smoothing out wrinkles and reversing the signs of aging. However, it does much more than that. It’s used to treat many medical conditions, one of them being migraines. It’s FDA approved for preventing headaches and is effective because it causes paralysis of the muscles, thus preventing the muscles to contract. And while those who are seeking relief from pain aren’t getting Botox® injections for the primary reason of looking younger, it is one of the side effects that you’ll get to enjoy.
Studies have shown that some people have “trigger” foods that stimulate a migraine to occur. While people vary on which foods can cause these ferocious headaches to seep into our day, there are some common threads. Caffeine, chocolate, dairy, and foods with MSG are at the top of the list of what to avoid. The best thing you can do if you feel your migraines are triggered by certain foods is keep a food journal, and pay close attention to everything you put in your mouth and how your body reacts.
