1. Avoid Loud Noises and Bright Lights
Both loud noises and bright lights are common triggers for migraines. Avoiding lights and noises can be difficult, but things like driving at night, crowded venues and the glare from the sun are all stimuli that can cause migraines, and can be avoided to some degree.
2. Watch What you are Eating
Certain foods such as chocolate, red wine, processed meats, sweeteners and cheese can cause a migraine. Try to keep a log of when you get a headache or migraine to determine what foods could be causing your pain. Then, avoid or limit your intake of those foods.
3. Maintain Sleep Patterns
It is important that you maintain your sleep patterns and habits. Sleeping in late one day could cause a migraine, because it's not what your body is used to.
4. Utilize Ice Packs
If you feel a migraine coming on or already have one, lie down in a dark room and put an ice pack on your head. Close your eyes and try to relax. This will help to reduce the pressure in your head.
5. Seek Medical Treatment
There are multiple procedures and treatment options for migraines including:
- Physical Therapy
- Chiropractic Treatment
