Hello Ayu, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Migraine is a headache that has characteristic pulsatile pain (throbbing) on one side of the head (sometimes it can also be felt on two sides of the head) which is usually accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to sound and light. Migraines can also be accompanied by neurological symptoms called aura, for example impaired vision (can be a moment of loss of vision, eyes see flashes of light, floaters, etc.), hearing loss, smell certain odors, taste certain tastes on the tongue, taste tingling on the face or body, etc.
The cause of migraine is not known with certainty, but several factors are known to trigger migraine attacks, including:
hormonal changes (for example during menstruation, pregnancy, or during menopause)
certain foods or certain additional ingredients in food
alcohol or caffeinated alcohol
excessive stress and physical fatigue
lack of sleep or too much sleep
certain medicines, and many more
Triggers for migraines in each person can be different.
Basically a migraine is a condition that is not dangerous, but very very annoying. Severe migraine attacks can interfere with daily activities to cause a person can only lie down and can not do anything. If indeed your migraine attacks occur quite often and are very severe or cannot be relieved with ordinary headache medications, you should consult directly with a neurologist. Doctors can give certain medications to stop migraine attacks (abortive therapy). If your migraines repeat frequently (you experience migraine attacks up to 4 times or more a month), attacks last longer (up to more than 12 hours), pain relievers cannot help reduce your pain, or your aura symptoms are quite severe (causing weakness or numbness of the limbs), your doctor may also consider giving migraine headaches (preventive therapy).
For now, you can try to take painkillers that you can buy freely such as paracetamol. You can also try to relax and reduce stress, get enough sleep and rest, eat regularly, drink enough, get regular exercise every day, and avoid triggering your migraines.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
