1. Emotional Stress Levels
Stress has the tendency to make any headache worse. Headaches are a common trigger for stress and controlling emotional stress levels can help cope with migraines. Stressful moments of anxiety, worry, agony, and even excitement can spark migraine symptoms in a lot of cases. For some people battling migraines, the attack doesn’t set in while the stressful event is on. Instead, the migraine attack may begin only after the emotional event has ended.
What happens is that during a stressful event, certain chemicals are released by the brain which helps deal with the situation. These chemicals then aggravate vascular changes, further causing a migraine attack.
