Migraine Awareness Month #3: Just shoot me now! What's your worst Migraine trigger? Can you avoid it? How do you handle it?
Worst trigger? Wow, there are so many....cigarette smoke, loud noise, bright lights, flashing lights, hormones, weather, heat, dehydration, hunger, lack of sleep, too much sleep, overstimulation, stress, drinking too much, perfume, air fresheners, scented candles, too much computer time...I could go on indefinitely! Sometimes I feel like life itself is just a big trigger.
My two worst have to be hormones and weather changes. Changes in my monthly cycle wreak havoc with my head as do weather changes. The weather can change from nice to rainy or vice versa, but either can trigger a migraine. If hormones and weather changes happen at the same time, it's a synergistic trigger convergence nightmare! Just shoot me.
