The reasons for each case may be different and are much deeper than it might seem at first glance. Only having defined them, it is possible to appoint adequate treatment. Of course, headache is not the only symptom that relates to psychosomatic disorders. Bronchial asthma, neuralgia, panic attacks and a number of other diseases are directly related to the psychological state of the person (for more details, see the psychosomatic table).
What actually migraine is?
A migraine can reason harsh excruciating pain or a vibrating impression, generally on just one side of the skull. It’s often conveyed by nausea, vomiting, and life-threatening sensitivity to light and sound.
If you are worried about the headache, the psychosomatics table gives an idea of the nature of its origin. It is compiled and systematized on the basis of a deep study of cause-effect relationships.
Fear, a state of constant stress, low self-esteem, inability to properly relax and rest, a sense of inferiority are just some of the reasons for which headaches appear regularly. Find out exactly what causes them and only individual therapy helps to eliminate them.
The exact etiology of migraine has not yet been studied. Doctors believe that the origin of the pathology lies in the disorders of the nervous and vascular systems.
The triggering of external stimuli, as well as a chain of certain neurological and biochemical events, are capable of influencing the blood pressure of the brain's vessels. This process is a trigger for the onset of a migraine attack.
Factors contributing to the development of an attack:
* genetic predisposition - 80% of patients have relatives with similar pathology in the history, more often on the maternal line;
* the presence of IRR (vegetative-vascular dystonia);
* psycho-emotional disorders, severe stress;
* tension (emotional or physical) - overwork, weight lifting, weight training, sexual activity, and so on;
* weather changes, meteorological dependence;
* the brightness of the light, flickering lights;
* sharp odors (perfumes, cleaning products, paints, finishing materials, etc.);
* high altitude, especially in the mountains or when flying in an airplane;
* trips, trips that require intensive movements, especially for low-skilled people;
* sleep disturbance, insomnia, lack of sleep, or, conversely, perepyp;
* violation of the rhythm of life or change of time zone;
* fasting or abnormal food intake with long breaks, insufficient fluid intake;
* violation on the background of hormonal changes - PMS (early menstruation), menopause, hormonal birth control pills, pregnancy;
* transferred head injuries (even very old);
* taking certain medications;
* “Weekend migraine” - an attack can provoke the first day of vacation or, on the contrary, going to work.
