Those who experience migraine attacks are among the most sympathetic people. However, there are several universal methods to ease its course.
Treatment of migraine in women
KEEP A DIARY
First of all, you may notice triggers - triggers, recurring conditions - when you get a migraine. And you will be able to talk to the doctor more specifically, because there are a huge number of signs of a migraine in a woman and the reasons that cause them.
You can download a mobile diary app for your phone or tablet, such as the free Migraine Buddy app (English-language, but simple enough even for those who don't speak the language).
REMEMBER YOUR TRIGGERS
Once you have discovered the conditions under which a migraine occurs, you can manage it by limiting or avoiding such situations. For example, if alcohol triggers a migraine attack, it's smart to avoid it, right? There are no general and universal triggers, and what causes a migraine in your friend will not necessarily apply to you. To determine a possible trigger, observe how you feel in this situation for three weeks. If the situation repeats itself, but there is no migraine, then this is not the reason that causes it.
EAT RIGHT AND OBSERVE SLEEP
Go to bed at the same time. Avoid both night work and late rises. Stay up late.
AVOID BLIND LIGHT
Beware of too bright or flickering lighting. In bright sunshine, wear sunglasses and/or a hat.
TAKE BREAKS REGULARLY
Especially if you work at a computer. Make sure the monitor is set to the highest possible frequency for it. Remove all glare from the workplace or position yourself so that the glare does not fall into the field of view. Provide comfortable lighting and ventilation.
STUDY THE harbingers of an attack
Learn to spot any warning signs that indicate an attack is near. This may be a feeling of stiffness in the muscles of the neck, absent-mindedness, an unpleasant aftertaste in the mouth. Act without waiting for the pain to come.
MIGRAINES FOR ALL WOMEN DIFFERENT
You shouldn't ignore symptoms just because no one you know has had them. There are no "standard" symptoms. Headache is not the only possible symptom. There are migraines that radiate with pain in the abdomen or in the teeth. Discuss your symptoms with your doctor.
DO NOT SPARE THE STOMACH
During an attack, the stomach may cramp and digestion may slow down. If you are taking medication, use the soluble effervescent form or take the tablets with carbonated mineral water. This will speed up the action of the drug.
GIVE YOUR TIME TO RECOVERY
After an attack, you may feel exhausted. If you grit your teeth and rush into battle without resting, migraine symptoms in women may recur.
