If you’ve ever had a migraine then you know it’s not just a headache – you can’t take a pain reliever and get on with your day. Migraines can be debilitating and make moving on with your day near impossible.
What is a migraine?
Migraines are a neurological condition that can cause multiple symptoms including intense, debilitating headaches, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.
What can cause a migraine?
Your trigeminal nerve can play a major role in causing migraine pain. The trigeminal nerve is responsible for carrying pain responses in your head to your central nervous system. If something causes a disruption between your brainstem & trigeminal nerve pathway it can cause you to be overly sensitive to pain which results in a migraine.
A migraine can also be caused by a sudden drop in serotonin (our happy hormone), when the sudden decrease of serotonin takes place, your trigeminal nerve reacts by releasing substances that bring on migraine pain.
Not surprisingly, some common migraine triggers also include anxiety & stress (which are also affected by serotonin), muscle tension, and lack of sleep.
