Magnesium helps a lot too
I just starting having crushing migraines 1 day after turning 49 yrs old. Although I’m going through perimenopause, it’s related to low blood sugar due to hormonal changes. Started eating every 3 hrs and they’ve subsided. Hope this helps and you feel better soon
Migraines got so bad I was having a couple a week, they are definitely hormone related (plus I know cheese is also a trigger...don't know why just get them if I eat it), since being in hrt I'm down to one migraine a month just before I'm due my period
You’re welcome. I hope it helps!
@Marcelle Thank you so much! Thanks for taking the time to respond and for the advice. I am so grateful. I read about caffeine and sleep. Ive never known which supplements to take. I'll look into the brand you've suggested. Thank you again.
I did. I had to give up drinking alcohol, and any caffeinated beverage. I couldn’t even tolerate decaf for a while, but I’ve been able to bring decaf coffee back. I went online and read about migraine triggers and just have to avoid all of them. You can look it up and see which things to watch out for. After I eliminated them my migraines were less frequent, but I still got them sometimes. I started taking some vitamin supplements specifically for menopause and perimenopause. You can look that up online too. There are lots of over-the-counter brands. I use some that I buy from the company Gennev. I also use some that I got at Costco, I can’t remember the brand name. After I started taking supplements that made a real difference. And then I had to be really careful about getting enough sleep. All of those things added up together, and I am only having a migraine about every six months now. Good luck! My migraines were the worst thing about perimenopause.
Oh I wonder 💭 if that’s happening to me .. it hurts sooo bad.
@Celine thanks! I’ll try it🌹
