Transcript

  • 1. HEADACHES<br />SURPRISING <br />HEADACHES AND MIGRANE TRIGGERS<br />Prepared by HEADACHES U<br />HEADACHES TRIGGERS<br />
  • 2. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />YOUR BOSS<br />TRIGGERS<br />Yes, your boss really can give you a headache. Anything that boosts your stress level can make you more vulnerable to tension headaches or migraines.<br />
  • 3. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />WARM WEATHER<br />TRIGGERS<br />When the temperature climbs, so does the likelihood of developing a migraine or other severe headache.<br />
  • 4. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />STRONG SCENTS<br />TRIGGERS<br />Strong smells -- even nice ones -- trigger migraines in many people. Why this happens is unclear, but the odors may stimulate the nervous system. The most common culprits are paint, dust, perfume, and certain types of flowers.<br />
  • 5. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />HAIR ACCESSORIES<br />TRIGGERS<br />How you wear your hair can take a toll on your head. A tight ponytail may strain the connective tissue in the scalp, leading to a hairdo headache. Headbands, braids, and tight-fitting hats can create the same effect. If this is the cause of your headache, letting your hair down usually brings fast relief.<br />
  • 6. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />EXERCISE<br />TRIGGERS<br />Strenuous exercise, including sex, can lead to exertion headaches. Physical exertion causes blood vessels in the head, neck, and scalp to swell, producing a build-up in pressure.<br />
  • 7. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />POOR POSTURE<br />TRIGGERS<br />You don&apos;t have to work up a sweat to build pressure in the head and neck muscles. Slouching at your desk will do the job, too. If you have frequent tension headaches, take a good look at your workspace.<br />
  • 8. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />CHEESE<br />TRIGGERS<br />One of the most common migraine triggers is aged cheese, including blue cheese, brie, cheddar, feta, mozzarella, parmesan, and Swiss. The longer a food ages, the more tyramine it contains.<br />
  • 9. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />RED WINE<br />TRIGGERS<br />Tyramine is also found in red wine and some liquors. Because alcohol increases blood flow to the brain, the effects may be even more intense.<br />
  • 10. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />COLD CUTS<br />TRIGGERS<br />Processed meats, such as cold cuts, have two strikes against them. They often contain tyramine, as well as food additives called nitrates or nitrites. These additives appear to increase blood flow to the brain in some people.<br />
  • 11. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />SKIPPING MEALS<br />TRIGGERS<br />Hunger headaches aren&apos;t always obvious. If you skip a meal, your head could start to ache before you realize you&apos;re hungry. The trouble is a dip in blood sugar.<br />
  • 12. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />SMOKING<br />TRIGGERS<br />Smoking is known to trigger headaches -- and not just in the person holding the cigarette. Secondhand smoke contains nicotine, which causes blood vessels in the brain to narrow.<br />
  • 13. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />CAFFEINE<br />TRIGGERS<br />For the headache-prone, caffeine fits firmly into the category of “can&apos;t live with it, can&apos;t live without it.” In moderation, caffeine is often beneficial -- in fact, it&apos;s found in many headache medications.<br />
  • 14. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />IDENTITY TRIGGERS<br />SOLUTIONS<br />If you can identify your most common triggers, you may be able to cut off headaches before they start. The best way to accomplish this is through a headache diary. This will help you find patterns, so you can try to avoid your personal triggers.<br />
  • 15. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />MANAGE STRESS<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Many people are able to manage migraines or tension headaches through stress-busting strategies. Although you can&apos;t control the stressful events that come your way, you can alter your response to those events.<br />
  • 16. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />STRETCH YOUR LEGS<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Moderate exercise is a powerful stress reliever. Walking is a great choice because it delivers an extra defense against tension headaches. Breaking up those knots diminishes the very root of tension headaches.<br />
  • 17. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />EAT REGULAR MEALS<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Eating balanced meals throughout the day will help keep your blood sugar on an even keel. That means no more hunger headaches. And be sure to drink enough fluids -- dehydration is another common headache trigger.<br />
  • 18. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />PHYSICAL THERAPY<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Physical therapy combines exercise and education to reduce pain and improve range of motion. In people with tension headaches, physical therapy can help strengthen the neck muscles and establish new habits that lead to better posture.<br />
  • 19. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />MEDICATION<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin or ibuprofen, are effective against many types of headaches. But avoid taking these drugs continuously, as this can result in medication overuse headaches or rebound headaches -- headache pain that returns as soon as the analgesic pills have worn off.<br />
  • 20. Are you dedicated enough? Get the most powerful pumps ever!<br />SEE A DOCTOR<br />SOLUTIONS<br />Any new headache that is unusually severe or lasts more than a couple of days should be checked by a doctor. It&apos;s also important to let your healthcare provider know if the pattern of your headaches changes -- for example, if there are new triggers. If you have a headache accompanied by paralysis, confusion, fever, or stiff neck, seek emergency medical care.<br />
