On January 25, 1998, during Super Bowl XXXII, football defender Terrell Davis of the Denver Broncos knew he was in trouble. His vision became abruptly blurred, indicating a migraine attack. He left the field, took some medication for migraine, and waited for the second room and the part-time show. His migraine quickly responded to the medication, and he returned to lead the Broncos to a 31-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Dr. Craig Nadelson of the Center for Sports Medicine at Indiana University, in a 2006 article published in "Current Sports Medicine Reports," warns that if you are in pain. During or after an exercise session, it is necessary to determine whether it is migraines induced by exercise or a different medical condition.
Causes and triggers
Migraines are a neurological disorder that results in unbearable headaches. You have probably inherited your migraines, as they tend to run in families. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, 12 percent of the US population. UU suffers from migraines. The exact mechanism that produces them is still debated by scientists, but one model suggests that the nerve fibers within the walls of the blood vessels of the brain are activated, causing the vessels to widen or narrow. Migraines are caused by a wide variety of personal "triggers," including changes in weather, stress, certain foods, and exercise.
People who suffer from exercise-induced migraines report the same symptoms as others who suffer from the same disorder: throbbing headache, visual disturbances such as blurred vision or flashing lights, fatigue, sensitivity to light, noise and smells, nausea and vomiting, pain in the breasts, difficulty concentrating and fatigue. Not all migraine patients have the same set of symptoms. If you frequently experience any of these symptoms during and after training, you may be having exercise-induced migraines.
Record your exercise-induced headaches in a notebook, including any additional potential triggers that may have exacerbated a headache. Ask your family members if other family members suffered recurrent headaches. Visit a neurologist and take your pain register. If your neurologist decides that you are experiencing migraines, he will give you prescriptions for medications that can shorten or eliminate the discomfort.It will also give you tips on how to avoid the personal triggers of migraine.
Some people who suffer from migraines induced by exercise stop training. A 2009 study in the "Headache" magazine makes suggestions for a safe exercise program. Twenty six patients with migraine did 20 minutes of indoor cycling in moderate intensity, three times a week. They started with a warm-up period of 15 minutes, since insufficient warm-up time can trigger migraines induced by exercise. After riding a bicycle, they entered a cooling period of 5 minutes. They were reminded several times to avoid stress, sleep with regular schedules and maintain good nutrition and hydration.
Six patients left the study for reasons unrelated to migraines, but the rest showed an improvement in oxygen consumption and fewer migraines at the end of three months. The study suggests that a regimen of moderate intensity aerobic exercise may allow patients with exercise-induced migraine to continue training.
