When it comes to headaches, you can’t get much worse than a migraine. When people talk about how they can’t do anything when they’ve got a migraine, they aren’t lying. Says GP Dr Ginni Mansberg, “You can’t go to work with a true migraine. You’re going to be locked in a dark room thinking your head is about to fall off.” Symptoms can include flashing lights, nausea and vomiting.
Some people are more prone to this type of headache than others but the most important thing to remember is that many factors can contribute to getting them. Alcohol can be a trigger, just like alcohol, MSG and stress. Here are a few ways to deal with a migraine, should you ever suffer from one.
