Migraine headaches are complex and each of us may experience them differently. The symptoms of a migraine attack vary from a nagging headache to nausea, vomiting,  blurred vision, and photosensitivity. There are also different triggers and their durations are unpredictable.

Common Causes of Migraines

Migraines are characterized by severe and throbbing head pain, often occurring only on one side of the head. In some people, warning signs like aura will occur before the pain. An aura is a visual disturbance like flashes of light or blind spots. A tingling of the arm or leg, and even difficulty speaking may also happen before the migraine sets in.

Migraine stems from different causes such as:
  • Hormonal problems
  • Stress and emotional triggers
  • Hunger and dehydration
  • Poor diet and nutrition
  • Prolonged screen time
  • Low blood sugar
  • Environmental triggers (light and noise)
  • Certain food products (caffeine, chocolate, peanut butter, dairy products, etc.)
