About Migraine

Migraine is a neurological disorder that is characterized by over excitability of specific areas of the brain. Individuals with migraine are more susceptible to the influence of transient factors, termed “triggers” that raise the risk for having a migraine attack. These triggers include hormonal fluctuations; environmental stimuli like weather or bright lights, certain smells, alcohol, certain foods, poor sleep, and high stress. However, not everyone has a clear trigger for their migraine attacks.
