Migraines can be debilitating, misunderstood, or even dismissed as just a headache. As a neurological disease, it’s important to understand that chronic migraines are physiological, not psychological. They have the ability to last all day long, every day of the month, wreaking havoc with work, school, and relationships.
Causes & Symptoms of Chronic Migraines
What causes a migraine for one person might not for someone else. Researchers have found several possible causes of chronic migraines, including environmental factors, genes, disorders of the central nervous system, and vascular problems. Common migraine triggers include stress, caffeine consumption, lack of nutrition and sleep, hormonal changes, weather changes, etc. Symptoms of a migraine can occur in various combinations, including moderate to severe pain, blurred vision, nausea, sensitivity to light, dizziness, and loss of appetite.
