Migraines & Headaches
A migraine is a throbbing, intense headache. Painful and sometimes disabling, they are also sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light, noise or smell.
Migraines tend to recur, typically lasting 4 to 24 hours and sometimes longer. During a migraine attack changes to chemicals and blood vessels in the brain are thought to be the cause of the pain.
Typical migraine symptoms include:
Intense, throbbing headache, often combined with:
- Sensitivity to light, noise or smells
- Blurred vision or auras (floating/moving lights moving across line of vision)
Causes of Migraines
If you are experiencing severe headaches or migraines you should visit your medical practitioner to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
If you are continuing to experience migraine symptoms, it might be a good opportunity to take a closer look at your diet.
As individuals, our reactions to foods and drinks we consume varies a great deal. At YorkTest, we like to refer to this as our personal ‘food fingerprint’.
Clinical studies show that identifying and eliminating trigger foods can reduce the severity and, or, frequency of headaches or even stop them completely. For those with migraine, discovering and understanding your own personal food and drink sensitivities, and the effects they have on your health and wellbeing is important to ensure you make the best possible choices to optimize your diet and quality of life.
