Millions of Australians experience migraine headaches, of which about 75% are females. Migraines can be intense and throbbing headaches, and quite often associated with nausea and sensitivity to noise and light. Migraines may last a few hours or a few days. Suffers of migraines experience visual symptoms called an “aura” just prior to an episode that is often described as seeing light flashes or a dream-like appearance of things.
Migraine headaches are caused by a constriction of the blood vessels in the brain, followed by a dilation of blood vessels. During constriction, there is a decrease in blood flow, leading to the visual symptoms that many people experience. There are many theories about why the blood vessels constrict, but no one knows for sure. What we do know is that there are a several migraine triggers such as lack of sleep, stress, flashing lights, strong odours, changes in weather and several foods, especially foods that are high in an amino acid called ‘tyramine’. You can reduce the chance of a migraine headache by making some lifestyle changes.
