basilar-migraines-understanding-the-triggersDelightful patients experience migraine relief in Vancouver. Migraines are neurological conditions that cause debilitating pain and suffering to migraine patients. Also, they can come from various sources. Head pain is merely one of its common symptoms.

Basilar migraines originate in the brainstem. The brainstem links the brain to the spinal cord. It is at the base of your neck where the skull ends. To find relief for basilar migraines, whatever causes the disturbance in the brainstem, should be corrected. Therefore, an excellent place to begin is to determine what triggers your migraine attacks to get to the problem’s underlying cause.

  • Confusion
  • Hearing loss
  • Dizziness
  • A tingling sensation
  • Becoming off-balanced
  • Slurring speech and problems with talking
  • Visual disturbances – temporary blindness, seeing doubles, etc

What Are The Possible Migraines Triggers?

  • Stress
  • Weather changes or altitude 
  • Environmental factors

  • Overexertion

  • Changes in your hormone levels
  • Certain foods that contain alcohol, nitrate, or caffeine

Keep these possible triggers so you can actively avoid them. Doctors usually recommend that you keep a migraine diary.

Finally, it can help you avoid those triggers next time.
