Menstrual Migraines are More Severe, Last Longer and are More Resistant to Treatment

October 9th, 2019

MENSTRUAL MIGRAINES CAN BECOME CHRONIC MIGRAINES 

Menstrual migraines are fueled by the drop in estrogen levels just prior to menstruation. True “Menstrual Migraines” occur at the time of menstruation.  “Menstrually Related Migraines” occur throughout the menstrual cycle.  Menstrual migraines are now considered a separate disorder from other types of migraine.

Menstrual migraines are difficult to control.  Approximately 1 in 7 adults have migraines, but women are three times more likely to be affected than men and 60% to 70% report a menstrual relationship to their migraine attacks.  Menstrual related migraine attacks are often more severe, last significantly longer, and are more resistant to treatment than the usual non-menstrual migraine attacks.

Menstrual migraines that occur only monthly can progress into chronic migraines.  Researchers are discovering that migraines beget migraines, the more you have the more you will tend to get.

Menstrual Migraine Help

 

According to a study published in the medical journal, Cephalalgia:

  • > On average, a menstrual migraine lasted 23.4 hours vs 16.1 hours for non-menstrual migraines.
  • > Menstrual migraines cause more disability and inability to function in daily tasks than non-menstrual migraines
  • > Medications to treat the pain of migraines were 50% less effective when used to treat menstrual migraines.
  • > Even when the pain medication did work, the risk of the menstrual migraine reoccurring was much more likely.

The authors of the study concluded by saying – “Menstrual migraines may require a treatment approach different from that of non-menstrual migraines.”

Other literature indicates only 13.5% of sufferers are pain-free after 2 hours compared to 32.9% of non-menstrual migraine attacks.  This indicates that 86.5% of menstrual migraine sufferers and 67.1% of non-menstrual migraine sufferers do not achieve complete relief from debilitating migraine pain after 2 hours.

The “Terrible Twosome” of Hormonal Fluctuations and Insulin Resistance Can Wreak Havoc on a Woman’s Over-All Health and Cause Symptoms of PMS, PCOS and Menstrual Migraines

Insulin resistance is the body’s inability to respond well to insulin, which controls blood sugar levels and can lead to Type II diabetes, abdominal weight gain and migraines.  High insulin levels due to insulin resistance increase the production of the male hormone, testosterone. High testosterone levels cause symptoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods and weight gain (all of these are PCOS symptoms).

There is a Direct Relationship between Hormones and Migraines

Headaches in women, particularly migraines, have been related to changes in the levels of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone before, during and after a woman’s menstrual cycle. Estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone levels can fluctuate significantly a few days before and after menstruation leading to migraines and causing symptoms of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) and PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) such as:

PMS Symptoms:

  • » Menstrual migraines
  • » Anxiety
  • » Overeating
  • » Breast Swelling
  • » Weight Gain
  • » Bloating
  • » Irritability & Mood Swings|
  • » Abdominal and Pelvic Cramps
  • » Fatigue
  • » Headaches
  • » Changes in Libido
  • » Depression
  • » Insomnia
  • » Acne
  • » Hives

 

PCOS Symptoms:

  • » Hair loss: similar to male pattern baldness
  • » Obesity and inability to lose weight
  • » Acne

Menopause and Migraines

Migraine headaches can severely affect women undergoing the changes of menopause.  Statistics indicate that migraines in women tend to increase during the approach to menopause and during menopause; however, they tend to decrease or go away after menopause.  It is also known that some women who have never had migraines develop them as they enter the period before (pre and peri-menopause) and during menopause.

Menstrual Migraines Hard to Control… Until Now!

January 22nd, 2011

If you think that your menstrual migraines are difficult and hard to control… you’re right!  At least until now!



A study recently published in a well-respected medical journal named Cephalalgia found that menstrual and non-menstrual migraines differ in women who suffer from both kinds.

Non-menstrual migraines are those migraines that do not occur within a few days before or after menstruation.  The menstrual migraines occur either a few days before the start of menstruation or a few days after menstruation has stopped.

The study found that menstrual migraines lasted longer than non-menstrual migraines.  On average, the menstrual migraine lasted 23.4 hours vs 16.1 hours for non-menstrual migraines.

It was also found that menstrual migraines cause more disability and inability to function in daily tasks than non-menstrual migraines.

Medications to treat the pain of migraines were 50% less effective when used to treat menstrual migraines.  Furthermore, even when the pain medication did work, the risk of the menstrual migraine reoccurring was much more likely.

The authors of the study concluded by saying – “Menstrual migraines may require a treatment approach different from that of non-menstrual migraines.”

We agree!  And that is why we created MigreLief+M for the treatment of hormone-related menstrual migraine headaches.  MigreLief+M is the first product specifically formulated for women suffering from hormone-related menstrual migraines as well as women suffering from the symptoms of PMS.
