Helpful Tips to Manage Migraines

August 30, 2013 at 2:05 pm Leave a comment

Although more people in the United States suffer from migraines than from asthma and diabetes combined, migraine remains one of the most underdiagnosed, misunderstood and undertreated diseases. A recent poll found that 61 percent of migraine-sufferers took over-the-counter medications or nothing at all for migraines.

Don’t minimize your migraine to “just a headache”. A migraine is a real medical condition that can come with a range of symptoms as debilitating as the pain itself.

Follows these tips to help manage your migraines:

  • Talk to a doctor about your migraines and to how best to manage them
  • Limit caffeine intake
  • Use an anti-glare screen on your computer
  • Ask coworkers to go easy on perfume and cologne
  • Stay hydrated
  • Know your migraine patterns, which could include irritability, mild pain or nausea prior to a migraine
  • Take your medication early, when necessary
