While the most common symptom of migraines is severe pain. Other symptoms may affect vision. In fact, blurred vision is a rather common symptom for a person to experience during a migraine. What are the causes of these migraine headaches and blurred vision? How can you treat them in a natural way? Read on to learn more.
While the ultimate cause of migraines is still unknown, some factors seem to include a family history, certain triggers (such as particular foods or activities), and head and neck injuries. In order to treat these migraines, a physician may prescribe various medications. Some medications include beta blockers, antidepressants, and anti-seizure medications. But what if you want a natural approach?
One good suggestion is to keep a food journal. You may be able to discover which foods or drinks trigger your migraines and cut these out of your diet to reduce occurrences. Keep track also of which activities bring on a migraine.
If your migraines are the result of an injury, upper cervical chiropractic can help you to reduce your symptoms or possibly eliminate the migraines altogether. This is because head or neck trauma can cause the C1 and C2 vertebrae to become misaligned. This can cause migraines, even if you don’t feel any neck pain due to the misalignment. Head and neck injuries, even 10 to 20 years prior to the onset of migraines may be to blame. Why not set up a consult with an upper cervical chiropractic practitioner to see if this is the right solution for you.
