I get headaches/migraines almost every single evening and lasts until I sleep. Medicine doesn't really help.Why do I always get & what can I do?

I get headaches/migraines almost every single evening and lasts until I sleep.  Medicine doesn't really help.Why do I always get & what can I do?

Understanding: Key is to understand migraines. Migraines tend to come on after a stressful event or high stress day. During the day you are in focus or focused on a task or tasks-multitasking of sorts, and therefore you have higher levels of adrenaline noradrenaline and your sympathetic nervous system is working overtime. This causes your blood vessels to be tight are narrowed or constricted as we say in medicine. After the stress is taken away you are removing yourself from the stress the constriction of the blood vessels releases itself and they become dilated are opened up. With this you get a rush of blood to the head.this rush of blood to the head causes the migraines to come on.that is why migraines are treated with medicines to help constricted blood vessels like caffeine and Imitrex (sumatriptan) and similar type medications. the key is to help slow yourself down and be in the momenT during the day. I have been teaching methods of deep breathing too many patients that should start before they start their workday and continuing during the workday and towards the end of the workday to minimize the migraine intensity or even completely. Dr. Andrew Weil at the university of Arizona is a great reference you can look up online. ...Read more
