Migraines - The Top 1 of Headaches

Jun 9, 2008
If you suffer form very painful headaches and have done so since you were young, chances are you may suffer from migraines, which are often also experienced by other members of your family.

Usually, only one side of the head is affected when you experience migraine. Extreme pain is experienced and can last anywhere from 4-72 hours if not treated, and renders you to bed. An attack is unbearable and usually makes the sufferers feel crippled and exhausted after the head pain has passed.

We still don't know why there can be such long periods without a headache for some people and not others. Other symptoms are usually suffered too, like light sensitivity and chills, along with a feeling of lightheadedness.

People who suffer from migraine attacks are those between the ages of 10 to 40. No one really knows why this is so, but when someone reaches the age of fifty, attacks almost never occur.

It is believed that a hereditary link is involved with migraine attacks. Members of the same family often experience migraine, but science has not proven yet that there is a genetic factor at work.

There is a condition in the brain that causes an inflammation of blood vessels and it is believed that people who experience migraines have sensitivity in this area. There is also a statistic that says women are more likely to have migraines (three times greater) than men (eight percent chance). Science has not been able to explain yet why this is so.

A distinct warning called an aura usually happens before the migraine attack by 10-30 minutes. Signs that you are experiencing the aura mostly involve the senses and can include:


Problems with vision

Reduction in the sensations of taste

Difficulty with verbal skills

This is only a short list, and other symptoms can and do happen. Migraines can also attack even without the aura, and builds up to an extreme intensity which is provoked more by continuous motion, light and noise, and often results in nausea and vomiting.

Some medical experts believe it is the contracting blood vessels that are responsible for the migraine with aura effect. It might be that it is the expansion of the blood vessels afterwards that causes the headache; those who are afflicted say the headache is often so intense that it impedes their regular routine, disrupting daily activity and often keeping them awake at night. You may experience one or more triggers with each attack. The most common complaints are bad weather, particular foods and beverages, being at great height, bright lights, insomnia and stress.

I have such compassion for those who suffer with migraines that I created a program to help eliminate them. The Migraine and Headache Relief program is a simple to use plan with astonishing results in reducing or completely eliminating the sharp pain of headaches.

With the Migraine and Headache Relief Program, you will be given easy exercises that you can do in just a few minutes a day, and you won't have to be controlled by the constant threat of migraines anymore.
