Harvard: the main cause of migraines

Imagine you’re getting ready to go with the family out for a fun Saturday.  You’re thinking of going to Wash Park for a little bit, maybe a stroll through Cherry Creek, followed by something good to eat.

However, right before you leave to go out with everyone you begin to feel a tingling sensation in the back of your head.

Oh no…

Not this, not now!

Since you were young, you seemed to be a magnet for migraines.  There’s never a good time to get one, but they seem to always happen when you have plans, or things to do.

Now, instead of having a great time outside, you’re relegated to a dark room with no sound, or smell, and pray that you don’t start vomiting.  The pain and sensations will only increase in a few minutes, rendering you useless for the rest of the day.

Sounds miserable.

Yet, this is how so many people live their life…day by day, hoping that a migraine doesn’t happen.

Migraines are the 6th most disabling illness in the world!


Most people are unaware of the cause of their migraines.  They might know what triggers it, but they’re unaware of the underlying cause.

At this point, it’s probably good that I explain the difference between a trigger and a cause…

Red wine is a trigger.  In some migraine sufferers, if they drink wine, they will experience a headache.  On the contrary, other people can drink red wine without any repercussion.

If red wine was a cause, then anyone who drank it would get migraines.  That just doesn’t happen.

The cause is the underlying problem.

Or, the reason why triggers can affect you.

Until now, there has been very little information out about the true cause of migraines.

Harvard did a research study to help answer this question.  What they found was quite interesting.
