Menopause and Headaches
Hormonal fluctuations are a fact of life for women throughout most of their lives. Women who suffer from menstrual migraines may be more likely to also suffer from headaches during perimenopause and menopause. That is because the uneven hormone changes associated with perimenopause and menopause can trigger migraines and other types of head pain. Unfortunately, this kind of pain can interfere with your daily life and relationships and increase feelings of anxiety or irritability.
Some women may find that their migraines cease when their periods do while other women notice an uptick in tension-related head pain. Still other women may suffer from headaches due to sleep disturbances caused by hot flashes and night sweats. Each woman is unique and will be affected differently by the hormonal changes of menopause. Tracking your symptoms can help identify triggers. Sugar, dehydration, caffeine, alcohol and stress may all trigger the onset of pain and migraines.
You may be able to reduce the number and severity of headaches you suffer by maintaining adequate hydration, reducing your sugar intake, eating a nutritious diet, getting regular exercise and maintaining a regular sleep schedule. If you are experiencing excessive stress in your life, you may benefit from relaxation techniques or yoga.
DON’T PAUSE, a multi symptom natural menopause remedy supplement, can also help control or reduce the severity of many common menopause symptoms, such as headaches. DON’T PAUSE contains green tea, pomegranate extract, black cohosh, phytoestrogens and DHEA to help support healthy aging and reduce the discomfort commonly associated with menopause.
