Migraine headaches

Migraine headaches happen when blood vessels in your head open too wide or close too tight. The most common triggering agents for migraines are alterations in serotonin metabolism (deficiency), diabetic condition, hormonal imbalances, histamine-induced platelet aggregation (blood platelets sticking together), blood sugar imbalances and certain medications.

In women, migraine attacks may also be triggered by hormonal changes during menstruation (periods).
