Migraine Gem - Migraines and the "Big O"

MigraineGemsPurpleFor some unfortunate people, the "Big O" can trigger a Migraine or cause certain types of headaches.

That really stinks, right? Right!

BUT, for other people, orgasm can actually abort a Migraine.

Does this sound like something you'd like to know more about? We can handle that!

Migraine Gem - The Possible Phases of a Migraine

MigraineGemsPurpleWhat do you think of when you think of a Migraine attack?

The headache? Maybe the Migraine aura?

There are actually four possible phases of a Migraine attack:

  1. the prodrome,
  2. the aura,
  3. the headache, and
  4. the postdrome.

Not everyone gets all phases, and each Migraine can vary from the next. You may have different phases from one Migraine to the next.

Want to know more about the four possible phases and their potential symptoms? You can find that information in Anatomy of a Migraine.

Live well,

Migraine Gem - Thyroid and Other Endocrine Hormones

MigraineGemsPurpleMigraines and headaches don't exist in a bubble. Comorbid conditions (conditions that we can have at the same time, but these conditions don't cause each other) can have significant impact on effective treatment of the individual disorders.

Since January is Thyroid Awareness Month, this is a good time to take a look at the connection between thyroid and headache disorders. A strong connection has been found between hypothyroidism and both new daily persistent headache and chronic Migraine.

Dr. John Claude Krusz notes that, "Thyroid and other endocrine hormones can play a notable role in the development of headache and Migraine and in their failure to respond to treatment."

For more information, see Thyroid Disease Can Be Comorbid to Headaches and Migraine.
