Treating Hormonal Migraine Symptoms

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


I've been getting major, migraine-type headaches since my hysterectomy. Could this be from the the hormone imbalance?


Whether you kept your ovaries or not, headaches may be the result of hormone imbalance. Hormone imbalance could be caused by your hormone replacement therapy (HRT) not being quite right or just by normal cycling of normal monthly changes.

Here are some options for treating symptoms:
  • First try Furicet or some other over the counter caffeine-based pain medications created especially for migraines.
  • Drink lots of water. Dehydration has been known to cause migraines. Adding water to your body may help ease your headache.
  • Drink coffee, tea, or any other fluid caffeine. Caffeine helps a migraine.
  • Stay away from chocolate, chips, fried foods, and sugary foods; they only make things worse.
  • Apply an ice bag to your head where you hurt the most.
  • Stay in a dark room with no lights on.

When treating a migraine headache, check with your doctor if you find that over the counter migraine medications do not work for you.

Request a prescription for your migraines from your physician. Prescribed products such as Imitrex can be very helpful.

Some women find that a demoral shot in the emergency room is the only treatment that works for them.

Once the symptoms are treated, look for the cause.
