Agents of Migraine

Friday, December 17th, 2010

The basis of migraine often forms disorders of organic character. But in our life there are factors that provoke attacks of migraine. We get cases when in the presence of many factors, seemingly, by all means, evolving migraine, an attack does not emerge. That may be explained by the reason that for the development of an attack a combination of several factors is needed – disorder of hormonal balance and stressing situation.

Predominant factors.
Food products.
From 25 to 40 per cent of patients say that migraine attacks usually develop after they use certain types of food. Therefore, custom-made diets are widely used in the treatment. More than 40 per cent of patients think that just due to dieting they manage to reduce frequency, duration and intensity of attacks.
Headaches generating mechanism due to certain food may be based on allergic reaction, but it is not the case for all patients. Far from being that. Many food products contain the so called vasoactive substances. The vasoactive monoamines which induce aseptic inflammation of the walls of blood vessels are among them. Even a small quantity of this substance may induce a migraine attack in sensitive to them persons.
Chocolate very often serves as a cause of headaches. An attack may continue as much as twenty four hours. Chocolate contains vasoactive substance called phenylethylamin.
From 40 to 60 per cent of patients among migraine factors make mention of alcoholic drinks. Or to be more precise, headaches are usually associated with not alcoholic drinks themselves, but with various admixtures that they contain. Wine, vodka etc. contain minimal quantity of admixtures, and usually their use in small doses does not give rise to bad complications in most patients.
Caffeine. Many patients associate their headaches with caffeinated products. Thus, ergotamine, as well as many other analgesics, contains caffeine which intensifies their effect. Upon termination of the intake of these medications patients may have withdrawal syndrome, which is expressed with headaches, lack of energy, irritation, physic tension and fear, insomnia, nausea and detraction. All these symptoms may be developed in people accustomed to take big quantities of coffee, tea, cola and other caffeine containing drinks.
Migraines, due to caffeine shortage, usually develop 8-16 hour after the last entry of this substance. They last 24-48 hours, but they may remain for several days and even weeks. People who are accustomed to drink much coffee at work may have caffeine pains during days off.
Hunger and hypoglycemia. Level decrease of blood sugar, which may occur due to hunger, may also bring migraine. If a patient is affected with migraine or some other headaches, but he or she is prescribed hypoglycemic diet, in order to avoid attack it is essential to eat well.  Three meals daily are essential. It is necessary to get up at one and the same time ( including days off). If a patient has breakfast later than usual, the due to it decreased blood sugar level may provoke an attack of migraine.
Physical exercises. Overfatigue, overwork and deficiency of adequate relaxation may bring migraine. An attack may emerge right after football play, dancing, aerobics or running. Combative sports, as they are potentially post-traumatic, also may provoke attacks. Acute pains of medium intensity usually are associated with arterial tension rise and dilatation of brain vessels. Bad pains, accompanied with nausea and vomit, may be the result of dehydration (dewatering) and hypoglycemia.
Headaches after physical activity are of vascular nature. Usually they continue several seconds or minutes. Such patients should scale up exercise and avoid midday activities under scorching sunrays.
Visual stimuli. Migraine may be provoked by bright light or noise. Even glimpses of pictures on a TV screen may bring an attack. Wear sunglasses or plain glasses but equipped with ultraviolet filter.
Smells. Many migraine affected women become aware of various smells at the attack time. Also an attack may be provoked by bad odor, such as asphalt, cigarette smoke, and gasoline. Unfortunately, good fragrances also may be migraine factors, such as scents, shampoo, aftershave or deodorant. Friends and relatives of such patient must be informed about his or her sensitivity to certain smells.
Smoking. Smokers are likely to have chronic daily migraines. Smoking often exasperates headache.
Seasonal factors. Many migraine affected people are sensible to weather change and seasonal changers. Aggravations are likely to fall on spring and autumn.
