What causes migraines? Triptans, pregnancy hazard

  1. In the previous part of this â € ˜ headache fileâ € ™ we discussed different forms of headache with all causes, consequences and possible solutions. Besides the tension headache, the cluster headache and the headache caused by drugs, there is of course another form.

  1. A kind of headache that unfortunately, many people know: Migraine. This article is devoted entirely to migraines, as they are a very common type of headache.

  1. Especially with women!

  1. Someone who has a migraine can tell you all about it, everyone has a â € triedâ € ™ prescription for treating those migraines. But the fact is that science still knows very little about this form of headache. In any case, it is clear that it has to do with the widening and narrowing of blood vessels in the head.

  1. It has also become clear that there are certain foods, substances and factors that cause the blood vessels to dilate and thus are a trigger for a migraine attack. Many people will be able to name a number of products that can trigger a migraine attack. But just a list:

  1. So many people, so many forms of migraine. When do we speak of a 'normal' headache and when is it a migraine? In any case, the duration of a migraine attack has been determined, as far as you can determine it, and is between 4 and 72 hours. But there's more.

  1. According to the medical definition, we speak of a migraine attack if, in addition to the specified time duration, 2 or more of the following conditions are met:

  1. Migraine is not dangerous

  1. But that does not alter the fact that migraine can influence life in such a way that mental complaints can arise and that migraine has a very clear mark on the daily routine.

  1. In general, migraines are treated with drugs such as pain killers and anti-nausea medications. Special medicines for migraine can also be used in the form of so-called Triptans, but more about this later. It is important for now to know that there are two types of medication in the fight against migraines:

  2. In general, migraines are treated with drugs such as pain killers and anti-nausea medications. Special medicines for migraines can also be used in the form of so-called Triptans, but more about this later. It is important for now to know that there are two types of medication in the fight against migraines:

  1. Triptans are drugs that are mainly used against migraine attacks and cluster headaches. Triptans are medicines that fall under the group of medicines that only need to be taken when you feel an attack coming on.

  2. Triptans are drugs that are mainly used against migraine attacks and against cluster headaches. Triptans are medicines that fall under the group of medicines that only need to be taken when you feel an attack coming on.

  1. It may sound contradictory, but the drug works best when taken when the first pain is felt. The effectiveness is simply greatest at that time. So if you are taking triptans, it is important to always have these medicines on hand.

  1. If the Triptans are taken too late, the attack is much more difficult to treat and the Triptans will therefore be less effective.

  2. If the Triptans are taken too late, the attack will be much more difficult to treat and the Triptans will therefore be less effective.

  1. The use of triptans just before and during pregnancy has not yet been sufficiently studied. Studies are ongoing, but for an unambiguous result, many expectant mothers are needed, and the research must cover a long period of time. You can imagine that this just takes a lot of time.

  1. Precisely because no data are available, it is generally not recommended to use Triptans during pregnancy, to protect the unborn child.

  1. Only in exceptional cases can Triptans be prescribed if the benefits for the expectant mother are greater than the possible harm for the unborn child. But do you want to take the risk? If you are pregnant and are taking or have taken Triptans, contact your doctor to find an alternative.

  1. If you are pregnant and take triptans, for whatever reason, you can sign up for the study of the effects. Ask your doctor about participation in the so-called pregnancy registry. By doing so, you are helping to make the drug safe, in the interest of the many expectant mothers to follow.

  1. Heredity of migraine

  1. A recent study has shown that migraines can often be traced back to families. This is the case in almost half of the patients. Despite this fact, it is not correct to conclude that migraines are a hereditary condition. In view of Mendel's law, it must be shown that it must be possible to predict with great probability who has an increased risk of migraine.

  1. This is not possible for migraine, and therefore cannot be designated as hereditary. Even research on twins has not been conclusive on this.

  1. Just like cluster headaches, too little is known about migraine to be able to offer a solution. A predisposition to getting migraines certainly plays a role. The only way to do something about migraines is [!pullquote] to limit the frequency and severity of migraine attacks. [!/ Pullquote]

  1. As we can read in this article, there are several medicines and methods for this. In the next part of this special we will go deeper into the possibilities that you have yourself. We also look at the available medicines based on homeopathy.

  1. Many female migraine patients always notice that migraine develops when menstruation is approaching again, or during menstruation. So do hormones have an influence on the onset of a new migraine attack? Unfortunately, I have to disappoint you here, because in most cases it is a coincidence. [!Pull ratio] Only 15% of migraine cases can be attributed to hormonal changes. [!/ Pull ratio]

  1. We call this a so-called â € menstrual migraineâ € ™. The cause of these â € ˜menstrual migrainesâ € ™ then lies in the fact that the female hormone estradiol drops into the blood during menstruation.

  1. A solution for this is available in the form of the contraceptive pill, which maintains the level of hormones throughout the cycle. But this is not a solution for everyone, because there are also women who get migraines again from the contraceptive pill. Consultation with the doctor to test different types of contraceptive pills is a must!

  1. Improvements through a different lifestyle

  1. In addition to regular medication, you can also do a lot yourself to limit or even solve the problem of headaches. Read on in part three of this special on headaches!
