Migraine Headaches

About Migraine Headaches

Facing your day with a headache is never fun, but facing your day with a migraine is even worse! If you suffer from migraines, you’re certainly not alone. As a matter of fact, migraines affect more than 29 million people and that number could actually increase in the next several years!

A migraine headache can happen at anytime and last for up to 48 hours. Some sufferers could experience the painful headaches once a week while others may only experience them a few times a year. The pain maybe moderate to severe and could be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.

While it is unknown as to what really causes migraines, there are some risks factors that are associated with the headaches. Most people tend to suffer from migraines between the ages of 15 and 55. A majority of migraine suffers are women and those who have a family history associated with them.

Even with the risk factors there are some things that can bring on the migraines. Getting too much or not enough sleep, consuming large amounts of caffeine, missing meals, smoking, stress and menstruating are all activities that can trigger migraines. 

Some foods can also trigger migraines. For example, processed meats, aged cheese, chocolate and foods containing MSG (monosodium glutamate) may all trigger migraines. If you find yourself getting headaches everyday, it’s very possible that MSG in the foods you eat could be the problem.

While there is no cure for migraines, there are some things that may be able to reduce the symptoms of the painful headache. Getting the right amount of sleep every night, limiting caffeine and eating at least three healthy meals a day may help keep migraines to a minimum.

You should also avoid processed foods completely if possible, or at least keep them to a minimum. Almost every food item that comes in a can or box has MSG in it.

In addition to the simple lifestyle changes, making sure you’re getting the proper nutition may also help.

While it is unclear just how powerful vitamins and minerals may be in the aid against migraines, they are certainly worth considering.

  1. I have suffered from migraine headaches since I was barely out of high school. I’m not even sure how they started or why, but I’ve gotten so used to their symptoms that I can pretty much pinpoint what I’m gonna have one. However, even knowing ahead of time doesn’t always help. When a migraine hits your day is pretty much over with. The last major migraine that I had happened to be one of his working at Amazon. It’s never any fun to try and put books on a shelf and keep nausea down and the pain to a minimum. And it’s definitely not fun when you don’t have any pain medication to help. However, I’m the type of person that tries to avoid medications when it all possible. And that day and Amazon may have been one of the worst days in my life, but I also learned how to manage the headache without any need for medication.

    One thing that I learned about headaches is that while too much caffeine can trigger a migraine a minimum amount of caffeine can actually help reduce to pain and make it more manageable. And because we were allowed to have liquids on a warehouse floor to keep us hydrated I chose unsweetened tea. Not only didn’t help quench my thirst, it also helped keep by headache to a minimum. In addition, I avoided the light as much as possible by working down aisles that were darker. And because it was such a hot day, the company provided its employees with personal cloth cooling packs that I was able to place on my forehead, which seemed to help with the pain.

    To this day I’m still not sure what causes many of my migraine headaches, but I have learned that why don’t get a decent amount of sleep it does tend to trigger them. I’m just glad I haven’t had one in a while. Knock on wood.

  2. My wife had migraine headaches all of her life, and one day we read an article that said MSG could cause migraines. We stopped eating anything with MSG or any preservatives in it (which pretty much means anything in a box or a can) and she has not had a migraine headache since then.

  3. I had migraine headaches all my life almost daily until I was about 26 yrs. Sometimes so debilitating that I could not work. One day I read a restaurant industry magazine that talked about MSG. I had never heard of that. It was like early 1990’s. After reading the article, I checked every item in my cabinet & fridge and yes, Monosodium Glutamate was in nearly every boxed, frozen, canned foods, and snacks such as chips and doritos. MSG can hide as different ingredient names too like sodium nitrate, maltodextrin, & autolozyed yeast extract. I carry a list in my wallet for quick reference at the store. We have to check everything that is packaged.

    Best idea for those who experience frequent severe headaches is to avoid preserved, packaged, or artificial food as much as possible and see if headaches subside. Its been a few years since I’ve had a major migraine episode; which is a blessing. Stay with freshly prepared foods and be vigilant to only select fresh food. I am very careful when eating at other people’s homes. If I’m not sure who something is prepared, I don’t eat it. A while back I made a mistake and ate a can of okra & tomatoes and my face got all red & hot swelled. It was awful. I had to go to urgent care.

    Do not be fooled MSG is bad news! I love SeaAloe too!
