I had a massive breakthrough with managing my migraines after consulting a doctor who had a special interest in painful conditions such as migraines. He helped me discover my triggers so i could avoid getting them in the first place. My particular triggers are the common ones:
Hunger (often confused with food - its not the big lump of cheese or chocolate you’ve eaten, its the fact that you were so hungry you wanted to eat it).
Sleep disruption - this is a difficult one when dealing with jet-lag but naps and adequate ‘resting’ can help.
Dehydration - a very important one. Even mild dehydration can lead to migraines and trekking in hot humid countries uses up a lot of water.
Stress - some stress is good for you. Working under pressure is healthy if manageable. When things get too overwhelming and frustration kicks in then this pushes people to start breaking down, either mentally or physically. TV isn’t worth busting a blood vessel over and occasionally I allow myself to forget this.
Whether it’s nervous breakdowns, cold-sores or migraines - it aint worth it.
