>>Something important to know about migraine headache<<

A migraine headache is a form of vascular headache. Migraine headache is caused by vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) that causes the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the large arteries of the brain. Enlargement of these blood vessels stretches the nerves
that coil around them and causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the
artery. The increasing enlargement of the arteries magnifies the pain.

How are migraine headaches treated?

¤Using ice, biofeedback, and relaxation techniques may be helpful in stopping an attack once it has started.

¤Sleep may be the best medicine if it is possible.


acetaminophen (Tylenol),non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),Aspirin

>>>>>NOTE:Children and teenagers should not use aspirin for the treatment of headaches, other pain, or fever, because of the risk of developing Reye's Syndrome , a life-threatening neurological disease that can lead to coma and even death.
