Ice Cream and Migraines

I had a terrible migraine today. It feels like my head is ready to explode. Migraines are related to a mix of environmental and genetic factors. I noticed that when it's a scorcher outside, my body is like a sponge that even when I am indoor with 74 temperature, I can feel the 96 degrees outside. Well, fluctuating hormone levels also play a role why I had migraines. According to studies that I read, the mechanisms of migraines are unknown. There are times that eating ice-cream helps the pain away. Today, I do not see that happen even if I finished half of this pint already (sighs).Migraine is a chronic disorder from moderate to severe headaches together with nausea. If I had it, it's really painful. It's like I am dying so; I would try anything to satisfy what I need to eat. If I eat that one thing that I craved for, migraine's gone. Weird!

My pain is on one side of the head and it's excruciating and pulsating. When I had migraines, I always have these symptoms: nausea, vomiting, photophobia-sensitivity to light and phonophobia- sensitivity to sound. Before the pain, I am so sensitive with so many things like the smell, taste and sound which tends to signal that migraine will occur soon. Now, I am eating ice cream again, I am burning!
