The News Cover: Migraine- a type of headache. People who suffer from this type of headache know how miserable life can be. Every moment of life is spent in unknown terror - when the pain arises. Socially they can't do much according to plan. But there is no escape from this situation? While trying to find answers to these questions, I am trying to write about migraine pain. As always, I will try to provide the latest information on this subject.

What is the nature of migraine headaches?

Migraine headaches are different from normal headaches. Usually on one side of the head. However, it has been seen to be on both sides. People who are prone to migraines may experience severe headaches from the effects of noise, light, odor, air pressure, and certain foods such as chocolate, grapefruit juice, cheese, etc. Migraines, however, are not just a headache, they are accompanied by a few other neurological symptoms (such as sensations of light or sound).

According to the symptoms, there are many types of migraines. According to some people, if there are a few symptoms of migraine, it can be said that there is a migraine even if there is no headache. These are called atypical migraines. In some cases, this type of headache is preceded by symptoms called 'ara'. For example, seeing something different with the eyes, inconsistency in speaking, feeling different on one side of the mouth or on the hands or feet. These are called 'ara'. If there is 'ara' with migraine headache, it is called a classic migraine.

What causes migraine headaches?

Hereditary problems: Congenital problems are a cause of most diseases in our body. Migraines are no exception. Congenital problems can have several causes.

1. Everything in the human body is controlled by genes. This genetic problem reduces the amount of serotonin secretion in our brain. That is why the nerves that control pain in the brain become active and cause pain.

2. Studies have shown that blood flow to the brain increases during migraine pain. At this time a type of protein is secreted from the blood vessels supplying blood to the lining of the brain. Which activates the nerve that controls pain and causes pain.

3. People with sensitive brains are at risk for migraine pain.

4. There are some foods that increase the severity of migraine pain after ingestion or if there is a feeling of mild pain, it can turn into a full migraine pain. Notable among them are the following foods:
(a) Chocolate
(b) Cheese
(c) Alcohol
(d) Cola drinks.

5. Migraine patients but also suffering from inflammation of the sinuses or suffering from a severe cold cough or cold; In their case, the incidence of migraine pain gradually increases.

6. When it gets very hot and the environmental conditions take on a steamy shape, the incidence of migraine headaches gradually increases. On the other hand, in winter, if the cold air is more or foggy conditions prevail, the incidence increases.

7. Hormone effects: Migraine headaches are more common in girls. Menstrual control hormones vary when girls start menstruating during puberty. That is why migraine pain can arise. People who have been taking birth control pills for a long time also have more estrogen. They are at risk of migraine pain. In many cases, migraine pain can arise in the menstrual cycle.

8. Excessive Anxiety or Stress: People who are overly anxious or under stress have different hormones in their bodies. That is why they are at risk of migraine pain. These patients also have high blood pressure, insomnia, and depression. That is why migraine pain can be triggered.
9. Eating extra sugary foods: When we eat too many sugary foods, our blood sugar levels rise, which leads to the production of excess insulin to control. As a result, blood sugar levels go down. In this way, migraine pain can start suddenly due to the difference in blood sugar level.

10. Sudden stopping coffee: A recent study found that people who are accustomed to regular caffeinated beverages may start migraine pain if they suddenly give up or stop that habit.

11. Excessive noise: Excessive noise, listening to loud music, etc. can also cause migraine problems.

4. Studies have shown that people who exercise regularly have a lower risk of migraine attacks. Gradually a lot came under control.

5. Exercise increases the secretion of endorphins from the body. Which can reduce various types of pain in the body. We use morphine or pethidine medicine to control pain. These endorphins are their homologous and internal substances.
