Migraine triggers in home

When the crisis is triggered migraine or gives signs that going to be triggered, many personal suffering they go back home to face the pain in a familiar environment. This could be a mistake. According to studies, about 60% of migraine sufferers have the genetically inherited disease, and 40% had disease due to environmental conditions. It is therefore possible that trigger migraines to be patient even in the house. Examples of triggers in your home: -allergens that exist in any home: molds, mushrooms masonry mobile mites, etc. In these cases it is useful to use air filter. -Tobacco smoke from people who smoke.

May be issued by the oven gas stove, fireplaces and other devices that work with gas, toxic emanations of the car (if the engine is started in the garage and living room is well sealed). -Water distribution network - it is recommended to drink still m

Migraines - Genetic research

Migraine headaches are a huge health problem. In a 2004 report, the World Health Organization (WHO) called migraines and headache disorders a global public health calamity. Migraines and other chronic headache conditions are disabling. In the same report, the WHO ranked migraine as one of the top twenty conditions in the world to cause years of healthy life lost due to disability. Migraines and all other headache disorders combined rank in the top ten causes of disability. As a result of the increasing global recognition of migraine as a health threat, genetic research into the condition has multiplied exponentially in the last ten to fifteen years. Doctors have long known that a child with two migraineur parent will likely have migraines. A 2000 Danish study using primarily twins indicated that migraine without aura (common migraine) is approximately sixty-one percent genetic. The other thirty-nine percent was attributed to genetic factors, making migraines a partially genetic

Causes of migraine crisis

Although they did some research, it is not known yet sure which are the elements that cause migraines. Supposedly there are a series of elements that we add over time and that, once reached "critical mass" cause pain parity. The migraine’s triggers differ from one individual to another, but many sufferers said that certain foods or combinations of foods trigger migraine crisis. Science disagrees with this theory. They did some studies on the role of certain foods to trigger migraine, but could not reach a conclusion pertinent. Although trigger migraine crisis may be theoretical speaking, any food, sufferers have prepared lists of foods that cause pain. There are some foods that appear on the lists of many personae migraine sufferers. These foods are: Cheese - is a trigger for many sufferers of migraine, especially the cheese house or consistency. With low fat cheeses do not produce or produce fewer crises. Processed meat (meat preparations) - seems to cause migraines parit

The French term derived from a vulgar pronunciation of the Late Latin word hemicrania, itself based on Greek hemikrania, from Greek roots for "half" and "skull". The typical migraine headache is unilateral and pulsating, lasting from 4 to 72 hours; symptoms include nausea, vomiting, photophobia (increased sensitivity to light), and phonophobia (increased sensitivity to sound).Approximately one-third of people who suffer migraine headache perceive an aura—unusual visual, olfactory, or other sensory experiences that are a sign that the migraine will soon occur. Initial treatment is with analgesics for the headache,
