Migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. The headaches affects one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and they can last from two to 72 hours. Common symptoms are: throbbing, searing pain (may or may not be one-sided), and in some cases, patients experience ‘’auras’’ prior to onset. It can also cause nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound, or smell.
About 7 percent of men and 18 percent of women are suffering from migraine headaches, and daily there are 20 million migraine attacks. This was showed on a research.
What can cause migraine headaches?
A lot studies were made to test what can cause migraine headaches, but none of them can fully explain what is the occurrence of migraine headaches.
But the majority of them believe that what can cause migraine headaches is:
-Excessive increase of blood flow in the brain.
-A neurological disorder related to nerve cell activity.
-Changes in the brain chemical serotonin
-Vascular constriction in the brain
Vitamins are related to migraines?
Back in the 2004, a study was made in the European Journal of Neurology, and it showed that migraine attacks can be avoided by consuming high dose of B2 vitamin (riboflavin).
It was discovered on the latest study that vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid supplements cause a two-fold reduction in migraines over a six-month period.
What can make you more open to migraine attacks is increased levels of homocysteine by some gene mutations and dysfunctions.
Vitamins that are safe can treat migraine headaches, and the migraine symptoms may be caused by another type of vitamin deficiency.
Professor Lyn Griffiths said that those with TT genotypes will have smaller reduction in homocysteine and consequent migraine symptoms, if all patients consumed the same vitamin dosage.
Another study showed that almost 45% of the patients with chronic migraine were deficient in vitamin D.
