On today’s House Calls, we are joined by Dr. Alvin Lue from Eagle Physicians.
He’s providing tips to help deal with migraines.
Approximately 44.5 million U.S. adults (18 to 26% of women and 6 to 9% men) have experienced a migraine.
Clinical features include pulsatile (pulsating), lasting anywhere from 4 to 72 hours if untreated, unilateral headache, nausea or vomiting and disabling intensity of headache.
Migraine triggers can be:
- foods (chocolate, soft cheese)
- odors (perfumes)
- weather changes
- additives, artificial sweeteners, alcohol
- caffeine – overuse or withdrawal from regular use
- delayed or missed meals
- sleep apnea or insomnia
