The exact cause of migraines is still unclear. However it is thought they are the result of abnormal brain activity which temporarily affects nerve signals, chemicals and blood vessels in the brain.
What causes this change in brain activity is also unclear, but genetic factors are thought to make you more likely to experience migraines as a result of a specific trigger.
Many possible migraine triggers have been suggested, including
- medicinal factors
- Pain Killers – like paracetamol and ibuprofen to ease the headache
- Triptans – cause the blood vessels around the brain to contract (narrow). As a widening of blood is thought to be part of the migraine process, this counters this effect.
- Anti Sickness Medicines
