Why do some women have migraines before their period?
Some people including me, get migraines every month just before my period. At times, it is quite agonizing till i need to take panadol to be able to 'rest-in-peace'.haha. I know panadol have a lot of side effects and that is why now i try not to take them for the sake of my health. I read this article from the CLEO magazine bout me suffering the migraines once a month. This article stated that this migraine has got to do with the oestrogen. Part of our period cycle involves oestrogen levels to consistently rise followed by a quick dip as progesterone levels go up..ermm.. i was a lil blur with that statement.. but after reading is for several times... i got it a lil. yea.. slow brain. Si it is during this 'oestrogen windrawal' that we are most susceptible to a menstrual migraine..... At least for now i know the reason behind this migraine thing... :P So its good to share with you people.
