3 Ways to Get Rid of Migraine Headaches
With the warm weather finally here, the last thing that you want is to be stuck inside on a beautiful day because of a debilitating migraine headache. If you suffer from frequent migraines, this blog post has a few ways for you to get rid of them.
Drink more water
Sometimes, you may notice that you get more and more headaches when you are dehydrated. If you are the type of person that wakes up with a cup of coffee, then has another cup, and even another, then you may be doing all of the dehydrating yourself which may be leading to more frequent migraines. Try drinking more water when you wake up in the morning.
One of the things that we recommend for patients who suffer from chronic and frequent migraines is to come into our office and get Botox. The unique thing about Botox is that it prevents migraines from starting way before they ever begin. By getting regular injections in the pain nerves across the forehead that cause migraines, Botox blocks the release of chemicals that trigger pain signals to the brain. The result? Fewer and fewer headaches.
Get Rid of Stress
Life is stressful. Whether you work at a stressful job or have a stressful home life, all of that stress can lead to tension in your headache which can cause— you guessed it— migraines or other types of headaches. If you can, try to do things to alleviate your stress like getting more sleep, working out more, or doing some yoga.
