Migraines are some of the worst headaches one can get, and in some cases can leave one debilitated. Most people who have regular migraines or severe headaches try to use strong painkillers to get rid of it, with mixed results. When the migraines are very common, the intake of the painkillers could also result into other complications such as side effect. What many don’t know is that food sensitivity may cause or contribute to migraines and headaches in some cases.
What Are Migraines/Headaches?
Migraines are a type of headaches which are typically much more severe than regular headaches. They usually affect one side of the head; either the left or right side. Some people also feel pain behind one eye as well. Some people get headaches only occasionally, while others have to live with them on a daily basis. Some of the common causes of migraines and headaches include bright lights and too much noise. This is why people who have an episode of a migraine are usually advised to stay in a dimly lit room with little noise in it. Food intolerance may also be implicated in causing or potentiating migraines as well.
Migraines/Headaches and Food Intolerance
The main problem with food intolerance is that it results in an immune reaction which is not limited to the gut, but may spread to other parts of the body. In the brain, some of the chemicals released during the immune reaction can cause constriction of blood vessels for a long time, leading to headaches and migraines. By eliminating these foods from your diet, the regular constriction of blood vessels in the brain may be reduced, which in turn may reduce the severity or frequency of the migraines.
Symptoms of Migraines/Headaches
People with migraines and severe headaches can display the following symptoms:
- Very painful headache
- Blurry vision
- Pins and needles sensation
- Frequent yawning
- Stiff neck
- Inability to walk with a steady gait
- Hearing noises
- Pain on one side or both sides of your head
Health Risks of Migraines
