I dont smoke and only socail drinking which is very occasional. any ideas on what trigger could be
Good medication; ?? hormonal in your case
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help.
First of all, sandomigraine (containing the active ingredients Pizotifen) is a good medication to prevent migraine headaches. Although,the standard medications used to treat migraine headaches are propanolol and/or sumatriptan. These are all good medications which have proven to have good effects against migraine headaches, so if at all you do not achieve good results with sandomigraine, you could request your doctor for a change in prescription to either of the above two mentioned contents.
As for triggers, there are various ma'am, and they differ in each individual. I am a migraine sufferer as well. For me the triggering factors are lack of sleep and starvation (due to my long working hours). Let me list some of the most common causes out for you:
-Long gaps between meals
-Hormonal causes (especially in women; most likely the cause for your headaches)
-Long hours of exposure to extreme temperatures (heat or cold)
-Lack of sleep (erratic sleep patterns; especially seen in shift workers)
-Sugar containing food or drinks
-Specific food items (eg. salty items, cheese, etc.)
and a few others. But based on the information provided by you, I am assuming a hormonal cause to be the culprit in your specific case.
I hope you find my response both helpful and informative ma'am. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.
