Obesity and migraine

Cautious migraine sufferers do a lot to help their headaches. From avoiding of bright sunlight and chocolate to use of pain medications, almost all are tried but prevention is mostly like a never achievable type task. But what if, we had a list of things which we could have avoided to lessen the chance of a migraine attack. Confused? For example when a pregnant female learns smoking is bad for herself and her baby, she tries to stop the habit for her self and the fetus’s benefit. Similarly if concrete information about various things that can precipitate a migraine were available migraine sufferers could have combated their headache better.

Researchers in John Hopkins found irrespective of the type of migraine (an episodic migraine or a chronic migraine) it has significant link with obesity. It appears to be that obesity is the evil of all. Obese people are more prone to such headaches than non- obese individuals. Therefore a weight loss program may benefit to avoid those painful episodes and also shred some of the long term side effects of the pain medications by decreasing their requirements.

Note: an episodic migraine causes less than 14 headaches a month whereas a chronic migraine causes more than 15 a month.
