How to prevent migraines
Migraine is a complex condition which can be triggered by many different factors.
Some of these factors are under your control, such as the food you eat or the stress you are under. Other factors are difficult to control, for example hormonal changes or a genetic predisposition to the condition.
Keep a migraine diary to track what you do every day, including what you eat, how you are sleeping, whether you are under stress and so on, and note when you have a migraine attack. Building up a record of your activities and the frequency (or absence) of migraines can help you and your doctor to identify what may be triggering the attacks.
Once you are able to see a pattern, you can then start to avoid the things that you think might be triggering your migraines, such as not eating well or skipping meals, or being too busy, resulting in stress or anxiety.
You can then try to avoid these triggers and record in your diary if the frequency of your migraine attacks decreases.
If you think that you are suffering from migraines, talk to your doctor, who can recommend the most appropriate migraine treatment for you.
