Many people who suffer from headaches and migraines wait for the pain to pass on its own. This leads many people to delay or even not seek help. Headaches and migraines are real medical problems that need real solutions. At Aqui Chiropractic Clinic in Bartow, FL, we have been treating headaches and migraines for many years. following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding headaches and migraines.
What Causes Headaches and Migraines?
The root cause of headaches and migraines varies from person to person. Foods, beverages, medicine, smells, the amount of light our eyes get, and other factors can all contribute to headache and migraine pain. Learning what your triggers are can help you avoid them, thereby avoiding headaches and migraines.
What is the Best Way to Find Out What My Triggers Are?
The best way to find out what your triggers are is to keep a journal. Write down when you had a headache or migraines, how long it lasted, and what medication or home remedy you took. Also, list what you ate and drank that day, if you got enough sleep, and anything else that was bothering you right before the pain started. Women also need to write down if they have their periods or if they are having PMS, since these can also be triggers.
Can Better Sleep Help My Headaches and Migraines?
Many people with headaches and migraines have difficulty sleeping. Getting better, more restful sleep can make a big difference in how often you have headaches and migraines. Talk to our chiropractor for ways that you can get better sleep. Many people have benefited from taking the nutritional supplement melatonin. Do not drink alcohol before sleeping. Although alcohol can get you sleepy, it interrupts your sleep cycles, causing poor quality sleep.
