Pain Relief with Excedrin

When there is no update in my blog, it only means one thing, I got a nasty migraine. Thank goodness of Excedrin for the relief after taking a tablet. A tablet gives me the break that I need from the agonizing pain. There was a study about migraine headaches. A person suffering migraines perceived an aura such as a transient visual, sensory, language, or motor disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur. In my case, I tend to crave for food.

What is Migraine?
Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headaches often in association with a number of autonomic nervous system symptoms. It is commonly unilateral which means; it is affecting only one half of the head and pulsating in nature.

Symptoms of Migraine
It includes the following: nausea, vomiting, photophobia - the increased sensitivity to light, and phonophobia - increased sensitivity to sound. The pain is generally aggravated by physical activity.

Triggers of Migraine
These triggers include hormonal fluctuations and in my case, this is true as it happens every month. The  environmental stimuli like weather or bright lights, smells, alcohol, foods, sleeping habit, and high stress can also trigger migraine. However, not everyone has a clear trigger for their migraine attacks according to the study.

* On Diet - skipping meals, coffee, soda, alcohol and more
* On Sleeping Habit - oversleeping / lack of sleep,
* On Hormonal Changes -Menstrual Cycle
* On Weather - temperature changes
* On Lightning - glaring lights
* On Emotion - depression, anxiety, stress

The pain is truly excruciating but I get used to it. It would be a miracle if I don't get one in a month. I don't really rely on Excedrin because if I can bear the pain, I won't take it. I always have it with me though if in case the pain is killing me. If signal occurs, I would find ways to satisfy my cravings and not drink coffee or soda. It does help. I noticed that my sense of smell is giving me a hard time because I don't like the smell of perfumes and some fabrics. Chocolates and the smoke from cigarette will make me throw up. 

Taking a long cold shower to cool me down helps a lot but most of all, one tablet of Excedrin does make miracle to me. I am not compensated on this post. I am driven to share about Excedrin because it gives me the pain relief when migraine occurs each month.
