What causes migraines?

What causes migraines?

According to the American Migraine Foundation: Migraines are the third most common disease in the world, affecting 1 out of every 7 people globally.

Migraines impact over $37 million men, women and children in the United States. Migraines cost more than $20 million each year in the United States due to direct medical expenses and lost productivity.

Migraine Triggers:

  • Perfumes and colognes are triggers for people with chronic migraines so monitor your use and amount.
  • Stress is a main contributor to migraines. If you feel a migraine coming on, practice some deep breathing techniques.
  • Screen time plays a part into migraines. Make sure to turn on your Blue Light Filter at your computer desk or on your phone.
