More than 29.5 million Americans, alone, suffer from migraines. Migraines are caused by vasodialation in the head which in turn causes nerve fibers to release chemicals that further the symptoms. (i.e. nausea, light sensitivity, etc.)
Fortunately, Sore No More can be used to help combat migraine pain! Apply some to your temples and relax for a few moments, letting the gel work its magic. You may also try these tips to help ease migraine pain.
- Apply an ice compress or heating pad to the back of your neck/base of your skull for 15 minutes.
- Dab a little lavender ssential oil under your nostrils (it’s best to dilute it in a carrier oil first)
(note: some people are extremely sensitive to scents while having a migraine... use caution with this tip.)
- Have a cup of coffee or black tea- caffeine has been shown to help some migraine sufferers.
Keep in mind that no migraine is the same. While some things may work for one person, they may not work for another. Make sure to discuss your migraine-managing options with your doctor!
