Coping with Migraines

Lots of people suffer with migraines, and it is a horrible feeling to have!  A migraine is like a really strong headache, which can affect vision and the senses. Many people experience different symptoms when they get a migraine, but here are some basic ideas to help you manage the pain.

Begin by making sure you are well hydrated. Water is essential to our bodies, so drink plenty of water throughout the day. Aim for around 1.5-2 litres!

If you feel a migraine coming on, try to get rested. If you are at work, see if you can go have a quiet sit in a dark room, or have a lie down if possible. This can make a big difference.
