SOME TIPS ON DEALING WITH SPRING MIGRAINES…

Dealing with Spring Migraines, a few tips from Migraine Relief Center.

With warmer weather comes the urge to spend more time outside, enjoying the nice temperatures before we enter the heat of the summer which could be sooner than we think !

Unfortunately, with weather and environmental changes comes the less enjoyable allergy season.

Spring is a difficult time for many migraineurs who face the double hit of runny noses and increased migraines.

Here are some posts from Migraine Relief Centre’s website on dealing with allergies and seasonal migraines.

COVID-19 VACCINES AND MIGRAINES…

Migraine Relief Centre have written this post about Covid-19 and migraines which I thought my readers would find very interesting.

Thanks to hardworking researchers and modern medicine, it seems like there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel of the COVID-19 pandemic. With several vaccines now available, many people are able to protect themselves against infection. However, some may have reservations about the injection. Here are some answers to common questions about vaccinations, specifically for migraine sufferers:

  • Will the vaccine trigger a headache or migraine? In clinical studies, some recipients reported experiencing head pain after vaccination. However, side effects like this are normal, typically mild, and short-lived.
  • Should I skip the second dose if I experienced headaches after the first? Most of the available vaccines require two doses to be fully effective, so do not delay or skip the second dose.
  • Will the vaccine cause persistent migraines? There is no reported evidence that the vaccine causes headaches or migraines. However, there is a higher risk of persistent headaches and more intense migraines in people who have gotten sick with COVID-19. 

Getting vaccinated is a safe and effective way to protect yourself against COVID-19 and help end the pandemic. If you have any concerns about vaccination and how it may affect your migraines, please contact your general physician or migraine specialist.

MIGRAINE AWARENESS MONTH – HOW HAND REFLEXOLOGY COULD HELP WITH HEAD PAIN & HOW TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT…

It’s Migraine Awareness Month and if you suffer from migraines, you will already know how difficult it can be to manage them. This month, migraineurs and researchers alike are coming together to advocate for migraine and headache awareness, education, and research.

Here are a few ways you can participate and show your support:

  • Join a community. Having a support group is essential for migraine sufferers. This month, consider joining a Facebook group, a Reddit community, or another group of migraineurs that you can turn to for sympathy or advice.
  • Educate yourself. Now is a great time to learn more about current migraine research and possible treatments. Check out the Migraine Research Foundation or their blog for migraine and headache-related insights.
  • Get social. One of the best ways to increase migraine awareness is to share your experience on social media. Don’t forget to tag your post or photo with #MHAM2020!

Migraines can be tough, but you are not alone. If you are experiencing severe migraines or need more information on available migraine treatments.

The Migraine Relief Center has also seen the effectiveness of massages in some migraine patients. Massage can release endorphins, increase serotonin levels, reduce sleep disturbances, and relieve stress. All of this can result in fewer migraines and symptom relief. The licensed massage therapists at The Migraine Relief Center integrate a variety of massage techniques in treatment plans.

One I read about is using hand reflexology ( similar to acupuncture but without the needles) –

For a headache at the back of the head put the little finger on the outside edge of the skin crease on your knuckle.
For headache and migraine in the temple area press the ring finger on the outside edge of the skin crease on your knuckle.
For a headache at the top of the head press the middle finger on the radial side (thumb side) edge of the skin crease of your knuckle.
