Hi Jolly Princess - that's really interesting about the swimming. I do believe in gentle to moderate exercise for a wealth of conditions.
I've only ever had migrane once and it was horrible. I feel for you.
Severe throbbing head pain often on one side.
Nausea associated with severe headache
Sensitivity to light (photophobia),
Sensitivity to sound (phonophobia)
Sensitivity to odor (osmophobia)
Foods to avoid are cheese and chocolate. Red wine is also a no, no, if you are suffering from migraine. These foods and drink have chemical substance called tyramine. Tyramine triggers migraine attack.
Migraine does not have treatment, but we can control or lessen the attack by knowing what triggers the attack. I have been a migraine suffers since I was 15 years old. I made research on its treatment but there is none. The medicines are just to relieve you from intense pain. Swimming is the best exercise for migraine. Swimming increases levels of oxygen in the blood. By raising the oxygen level, it relaxes constricted blood vessels that enable better blood circulation reducing, if not all eliminating, migraine attack. When I was swimming regularly, I hadn’t had an attack for straight 2 years.
