There are many different types of pain that we may experience in our lifetime but one that many people suffer from on a regular basis is a problem with headaches. Headaches also come in many different types, including tension and sinus headaches. The worst type, however, is a migraine and it can put you out of commission very quickly.

When an individual suffers from a migraine headache, the pain can come on rather quickly and it can be debilitating. Sometimes there may be warnings, such as visual disturbances but in many cases, they come on without warning and before you know it, you are dealing with the headache of a lifetime.

When the headache occurs, it can stop a person from doing anything that they may be doing and go to bed for the rest of the day. According to Dr. Weil, a holistic health physician, 17% of women in 6% of men have a problem with migraines. That is an incredible number of individuals.

There may also be other symptoms associated with migraines, including the pounding headache, nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light and sounds and visual disturbances. They are a severe health problem and there are even strong prescription medications given to control them, although they are limited in their abilities.

If you find yourself among the number that suffers from migraine headaches, you likely look for ways to get rid of them for good. Research has shown that headaches may be an issue associated with a vitamin deficiency and it is relatively common.

The cause of migraines has been searched for by scientists for decades. Some people blame changes in the weather, especially if you live in an area where the weather is hot.

As you can tell, severe headaches may come about for a variety of reasons but new research is showing that it may be possible to reduce the intensity of the symptoms and the number of migraines that you have.
