Advice with dealing with "let down" migraines?

  • By Nancy Harris Bonk Moderator

    Hi kp1234567,

    Thank you for reaching out and being part of the discussion forum – we’re glad you’re here!

    I can share with you some tips I find helpful to keep let down migraine at bay. It may be more about what we do and don’t do during stressful periods that trigger this type of migraine. When I encounter stressful times, like the holidays, I work hard to keep my routine as normal as possible. This includes keeping a regular sleep schedule, staying hydrated, not skipping meals, and avoiding the triggers I’m able to such as certain foods, limiting alcohol and caffeine and trying to keep my stress as low as possible. I’ve also started meditating and being more mindful and listening more to my body, which is not an easy thing for me to do. I’ve also started yoga, which has been show to help reduce migraine.

    So in closing I would suggest;
    Keeping normal routines
    Keeping a regular sleep schedule
    Staying hydrated
    Not skipping meals
    Avoiding the triggers we can
    And reducing overall stress.

    I hope that helps!

    Happy Holidays
