In case you suffer from painful bouts of migraine, you will certainly not want it to be back, ever. Migraine attacks bring along nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound. In order to tackle the condition wisely, you should know about what triggers migraine attacks. Here are some of the strange reasons that may usher migraine attacks.

Hormonal birth control pills: In case you are a frequent user of hormonal birth control pills, you need to watch out. This because, these pills can worsen your migraine attacks. Doctors suggest that women are more likely to get migraines at the onset of menstruation and those who have chronic migraines get them exactly before their period starts. According to experts, the drop in oestrogen levels before a woman's period can be a mechanism triggering the process.

Salty foods: If you are too much fond of salt, you may have to reduce your salt intake. Reason, salty foods can affect your blood pressure, enhance the amount of sodium in your bloodstream and adversely impact your kidney's ability of removing water. Your body's response with higher blood pressure can be an active inducer of migraines.
