The human body is wonderfully made! It is constantly adjusting to environmental changes such as light, sound, stress, motion, hunger, and sleep just to name a few. To think that an average body compensates and handles these changes, for 70 plus years without a break, is utterly miraculous. Just as amazing is how differently some people respond to these certain conditions than do other people. Some people have bodies that are especially sensitive. I refer to them as having sensitive bodies. A migraineur, a person that has migraines, has what I call the sensitive body. If you fall into this category, your body is more easily upset or excited by environmental changes than a person who does not suffer from migraines. Often a patient is quick to dismiss this evaluation of himself by saying I never have bad headaches or I hardly ever have a headache; however, it is important to understand the scope of a migraine. It is much more than the stereotypical pounding headache that sends you to bed.
A migraine develops when the nervous system experiences an upset or disturbance. This disturbance which interferes with normal life is called a trigger. Triggers stimulate the nervous system. The eventual result is an electrical discharge going across the cerebral cortex which interrupts the brains game plan for a normal-functioning day. The results of this interruption range from mild neckache to a headache that debilitates. Triggers run the gamut from too little sleep to changes in barometric pressure. As you begin to understand your body better you will learn to identify your particular triggers. In theory, anybody with enough stimulation from light, sound, smell, food, and/or stress could develop migraines. Genetically some people are more susceptible than others.
