Roughly 10 million people in the UK get migraines, a common neurological condition that often causes severe headaches. Other symptoms include feeling or being sick and increased light and sound sensitivity.
Women are more likely to experience a migraine than men. Migraines have many causes and triggers. We recommend identifying possible triggers to prevent future attacks.
Triggers can include:
- Poor sleep
- Alcohol or caffeine
- A drop in blood sugar
- Changes in the weather
- Hormone changes in women
- Additive and processed or salty foods
