Migraine being a ubiquitous disease has become the talk of the world. Although it’s not a fatal disorder but there’s always a thump-thump of heart during dreadful onset of Migraine and one can’t put up with his pain.

As we know ‘longer the pain been establish the harder it is to abolish’ so, before migraine becomes writing of your wall its better to cease it there.

By virtue of paying more attention to work people deprive themselves from a proper recreation excessive hours, which causes physical stress such as prolonged exertion especially when it’s combined with muscle bending and scooping. Physical stress caused by lack of sleep and emotional stress (failed personal relationship effect the patient adversely is an irrefutable truth) and exposure to extreme heat or cold also may trigger the initial or subsequent severe attacks of Migraine. Alteration in the life style or elimination of the cause may bring improvement. In such cases patient should zero in on the special relaxation technique such as Yoga and Hypnosis.

A slight change in eating habits will vamp up the condition of the patient. Certain food stuffs like chocolate, citrus fruits, fatty foods (esp. Pork), alcohol, tea, coffee, cheese and other dairy products should be pared down. Missing out a meal on regular basis may bring on an attack. So its good not to alter meal with snacks as a stitch in time saves nine.

The patient of cervical spondylosis should keep a vigil as it is responsible for making migraine worse, which could be treated my immobilizing the neck in a collar. Migraine may occur primarily on Saturday or Sunday morning, staying in bed longer. This is so called letup headache and hence waking routine should not be altered. Person should be careful during hot and dry weather as it may effect adversely, patient should also avoid stuffy airless atmosphere such as in Pubs or Theaters especially when it is polluted by cigarette smoke. It’s also suggested to avoid imminent excessive bright light. During attack its worth while taking a pain killer such as Paracetamol or soluble aspirin and should relax in bed inside a dark ventilated room and should try to sleep again. The lowest pillow should be kept under the shoulders so that head, neck and upper trunk remain in straight line.

If one feels running against visual upset, numbness, vertigo etc. during work then the vasoactive drugs such as Migril, Cafergot or Lingraine should be taken before headache comes. If the person see about in early attacks, there is poor absorption of food and drug and X-Ray confirms that the movement of stomach walls ceases it’s essential not to make light of this warning and treatment should be started as soon as possible. Anti vomiting drug like Metaclopramide could be a good option in this high and dry situation.

Yet taking such precautions all the time is a Herculean task but one who wants to live on velvet, must abide by the precaution measures because one just can’t yield under pressure rather has to knock out for better treatment, then why not to play safe?
