Migraines are mysterious and unpredictable at times. There are many migraine triggers and treatment is based on evaluation of all the potential contributing factors and triggers.
Dr. Lisa: Migraine triggers can include weather changes, certain foods, alcohol, caffeine, stress, sleep disruptions, hormonal changes, and overuse of rescue medications. Other conditions that can lower the threshold for migraine include magnesium deficiency, mold exposure, concussions, TMJ, and neck injuries.
Dr. Lisa: Due to the complexity of this condition, it is not an easy fix and may require a variety of treatments including IV magnesium, Cranial Sacral therapy, Acupuncture, Physical therapy, injection therapy, Elimination diets, Biotoxin (like mold or other mycotoxin for example) or heavy metal elimination, and treatment sleep disorders, and more.
