Migraine prevention

Try these steps to prevent symptoms

• Identify and avoid triggers. Please keep track of your symptom patterns in a diary to figure out what’s causing them.
• Manage stress. Relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga and mindful breathing can help.
• Eat on a regular schedule.
• Drink lots of fluids.
• Get plenty of rest.
• Get regular moderate exercise.
• Ask your doctor about preventive medicines if you get migraines around your period or if lifestyle changes don’t help.
• Some new devices can also prevent migraines. Cefaly is a headband-like gadget that sends electrical pulses through the skin of your forehead. It affects your trigeminal nerve, which is linked with migraine headaches. You use Cefaly once a day for 20 minutes. When it’s on, you’ll feel a tingling or massaging sensation.
