What causes migraines?
Although genetics and environment play a role, the cause of migraines isn’t fully understood. There are certain triggers that have been identified including stress, weather changes, lack of sleep and hormonal changes in women due to fluctuations in estrogen. Some foods, beverages and medications have also been found to trigger migraines.
