Studies suggest that half of the risk for migraines comes from your family history. If a relative has migraine, you are more likely to have it.
Changes in humidity, temperature, and air pressure are some of the most common triggers and, of course, hardest to control.
Anxiety and Stress
A stressful time can be a trigger, but migraine can show up once you are relaxed after the stressful time is over.
Designed to prevent migraines days before they start. This is a prescription only medication that is taken routinely in order to reduce migraine frequency and their severity.
Taken once the migraine pain has started in order to reduce the length and pain of the migraine. This medication is available over the counter, and it is only taken as needed.
Taking acute medication too often can actually lead to more headaches.
