Managing Menopause Migraines

From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List

Managing menopause migraines
Are you struggling with migraines that seem to have no rhyme or reason? Are your migraines associated with menopause? There is definitely no easy answer to this one.

The Logic of Menopause Migraines


Its true - migraines are typically associated with fluctuating hormone levels of our menstrual cycles. Migraines in women typically begin before the age of 40, long before menopause.

Therefore - The logic: It stands to reason that along with menopause and the challenges of hormone levels changing, migraines may continue to be your companion.

You may have menopause related migraines
  • If your migraine pattern changes with menopause.
  • If you have migraine headaches along with other menopause symptoms.
  • If you have migraine headaches when using or stopping HRT.

Treat Your Migraines


Treating hormonal migraines can include working with your doctor to balance your hormones, but it also involves avoiding typical triggers--some of which can also be menopause symptoms:
  • fatigue
  • anxiety
  • food issues

Know your Migraine Triggers


Foods - Cheese, cured meats, dried fruits, nuts, citrus fruit, chocolate, salty foods
Additives- MSG, aspartame, and nitrites or nitrates

Light - Bright light, sunlight, flashing lights, strobes, TV or movie screens
