Migraine headaches result from a combination of blood vessel enlargement and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around these blood vessels.
Brain lesions and migraine link – women who suffer from migraines have a greater risk of having deep white matter hyperintensities (brain lesions) compared to other women, researchers from Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands, reported in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) (November 2012). They added that migraine severity, frequency and how long they had been going on for were not associated with the progression of lesions.

How is migraine treated and prevented?
Over-the-counter medications such as naproxen, ibuprofen, acetaminophen (paracetamol), and other analgesics like Excedrin (aspirin with caffeine) are often the first abortive therapies to eliminate the headache or substantially reduce pain.
With the first migraine signs, you should drink three glasses of cold water.
Massage of your scalp for a couple of minutes can also be a cure for migraine headache. Put your middle fingers to your forehead, on your hairline. Move them slowly towards crown of the head and temples. After that, walk your middle fingers on your hairline at the bottom of your skull and massage it.
Acupuncture has also been suggested to be a very successful migraine headache treatment. According to known results all over the world, it is effective in 80 percent of the cases what makes it actually one of the most efficient migraine cures. Normally, you can notice the reduction and intensity of attacks after 10-15 treatments.
Rosemary (as bath supplement or tea) also takes care of the hormonal balance; it strengthens and calms the nervous system with the migraine and tension headache.
