The Nervous System and Migranes
Quite often, the source of your migraine or headache is your nervous system. There are different causes of migraines and headaches, such as tension, physical factors or even certain foods, but exploring the underlying issue further could lead to answers.
Sometimes the spine can move out of position due to pressure on the nerves. This can be caused by trauma, repetitive stress, or even developmental issues. When this happens, muscles in the back of your neck, jaw and back tighten, causing headaches or migraines. When you notice pain in your head and neck, it’s important to deal with the cause of this pain right away. Otherwise it will lead to worsening of your symptoms.
Common Headache Triggers
- Tension and tension headaches are triggered by stress, but certain foods, odors, and even changes in the weather have been noted as things that can trigger a headache.
- Emotional factors such as depression, anxiety, and even excitement may be associated with developing a tension headache.
- Food additives such as nitrite compounds and monosodium glutamate (MSG) can also cause headaches for some people.
