You can take control of your headache pain by learning the triggers that lead to your migraines. Red wine, caffeine withdrawal, stress, or skipped meals are among the common culprits.
The first step is to track your migraines in a diary. Make notes of what you were doing before and when your headache came on. What were you eating? How much sleep did you get the night before? Did anything stressful or important happen that day?
If you suffer from migraines, you may want to pay more attention to your
sleep habits. That's the message from several studies which show that sleep
problems, like insomnia, may actually trigger migraines.
