Like labor pains, migraines are unmistakable. First you feel downright sensitive, and then you “see lights” or feel tingling or numbness. (This “aura” occurs in 20 percent of those with migraines.) Next comes an intense, throbbing pain, usually on one side of your head. There may be nausea or even vomiting. Light and movement make the pain worse. All you want to do is sequester yourself in a dark, quiet room. It’s unclear why some people are prone to migraines. But it does seem that menstrual migraines are related to fluctuating estrogen levels. Just before your period, estrogen levels drop. This affects the brain’s neurotransmitters and the sensitivity of the receptors that pick up their messages. Blood vessels dilate, nerves are sensitized and muscles go into spasm. #menstration #menstrualheadache #headache #migraine #pain #neurologistmanila #winnielimkhoo #neurologistmanila #winniesharonlimkhoo #adultneurologist #manila #philippines – at Hemodialysis Unit – Chinese General Hospital
