Are you someone who suffers from migraines around the same time as your menstrual cycle?
So… what is menstrual migraine, and what causes it?
Ranked the top 5 most disabling condition for women, menstrual migraines can affect women at various stages of a menstrual cycle.
Migraine symptoms may be experienced on one side or both sides of the head, with a pulsating/throbbing pain of moderate to severe intensity.
Some women may also have nausea/vomiting or other symptoms such as sensitivity to light, sound or smell.
Recent research has found that a fault in the upper cervical spine is causing a sensitised brainstem, which means even the slightest sensory or chemical changes bring on a heightened response by the body!
Have a look at this video, presented by the Director of Brisbane Headache and Migraine Clinic. Bertrand Doeuk explains more in the video about the cause of menstrual migraines, the safest treatment approach and what you can do to help reduce your symptoms.
