Balik jer dari kerja petang semalam, kepala ni dah rasa lain macam. Sebenarnya,masa memandu lagi dah rasa sakit kepala.. pening semacam. Bila urut2 kat bahagian pangkal hidung ( antara 2 mata) terasa lega sikit. Balik jer terus baring. Malam bila makan ubat pening ( sentiasa ada simpan), kepala masih rasa bengal dan tak selesa.
Selepas 2 jam makan ubat, baru terasa kesannya..huhuhu mengantuk giler!! tengok TV pun rasa bosan..ada beberapa kali TV tengok akak tido...ahaks. Sementara tunggu mak balik dari surau, tak boleh nak terus tido sebab kunci mak tak bawak. Bila mak balik dalam pukul 10.15, terus OFF TV, dan ZZZzz.
Pagi ni, kepala masih terasa tak selesa..bila migrain datang cam gini ler. Buat keja pun tak leh nak fokus sangat. Letih...
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
A lot of people get migraines -- about 11 out of 100. The headaches tend to first appear between the ages of 10 and 46. Occasionally, migraines may occur later in life in a person with no history of such headaches. Migraines occur more often in women than men, and may run in families. Women may have fewer migraines when they are pregnant. Most women with such headaches have fewer attacks during the last two trimesters of pregnancy.
A migraine is caused by abnormal brain activity, which is triggered by stress, certain foods, environmental factors, or something else. However, the exact chain of events remains unclear.
Scientists used to believe that migraines were due to changes in blood vessels within the brain. Today, most medical experts believe the attack actually begins in the brain itself, where it involves various nerve pathways and chemicals. The changes affect blood flow in the brain and surrounding tissues.
Migraine attacks may be triggered by:
Certain odors or perfumes
Changes in hormone levels (which can occur during a woman's menstrual cycle or with the use of birth control pills)
Changes in sleep patterns
Physical or emotional stress
Smoking or exposure to smoke
Certain foods and preservatives in foods may trigger migraines in some people. Food-related triggers may include:
Any processed, fermented, pickled, or marinated foods
Foods containing monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Foods containing tyramine, which includes red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, and certain beans
Fruits (avocado, banana, citrus fruit)
Meats containing nitrates (bacon, hot dogs, salami, cured meats)
This list may not be all-inclusive.
True migraine headaches are not a result of a brain tumor or other serious medical problem. However, only an experienced health care provider can determine whether your symptoms are due to a migraine or another condition.
Vision disturbances, or aura, are considered a "warning sign" that a migraine is coming. The aura occurs in both eyes and may involve any of all of the following:
A temporary blind spot
Seeing stars or zigzag lines
Not every person with migraines has an aura. Those who do usually develop one about 10-15 minutes before the headache. However, it may occur just a few minutes to 24 hours beforehand.
Migraine headaches can be dull or severe. The pain may be felt behind the eye or in the back of the head and neck. For many patients, the headaches start on the same side each time. The headaches usually:
Feel throbbing, pounding, or pulsating
Are worse on one side of the head
Start as a dull ache and gets worse within minutes to hours
Last 6 to 48 hours
Other symptoms that may occur with the headache include:
Loss of appetite
Nausea and vomiting
Numbness, tingling, or weakness
Problems concentrating, trouble finding words
Sensitivity to light or sound
Symptoms that may linger even after the migraine has gone away include:
Feeling mentally dull, like your thinking is not clear or sharp
Increased need for sleep
