Migraine is very common in India. Migraine attacks are different from typical headaches. You may experience pounding pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. When a migraine attack or episode occurs, you’ll do almost anything to make it go away. Here are some which help you to fight this pain.
Acupressure: It involves applying pressure to specific parts of the body. Stimulating these points aims to release muscle tension and alleviate pain. One popular pressure point is the LI-4 point in the space between the base of the left thumb and the index finger. Pressing your finger in LI-4 point for five minutes.
Avoid certain Food: Being aware of what might be triggering migraine is critical. Some people use a food diary or migraine journal to keep track of potential triggers. Changing the diet or eating patterns to avoid triggers may help prevent episodes in the future. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, and smoking.
Manage your Stress: Stress is a common trigger for migraine episodes. It may even create a cycle, in which migraine pain worsens the stress, which then triggers another migraine.
Add Ginger If you get nausea with your attacks, or if nausea is a side effect of your migraine medication, ginger might help soothe your stomach. You can easily find fresh ginger and ginger tea in the grocery store, or find ginger powder or capsules at a health store.
Massaging: Massaging the muscles in the neck and shoulders may help relieve tension and alleviate migraine pain. Massage may also reduce stress. A person may benefit from a professional massage.
Ice Compress: Some people find that laying cool or warm compresses on their heads can be soothing and help reduce migraine pain. Anecdotal evidence suggests that more people may prefer cool compresses.
