Migraines are a more severe type of headache which can also be accompanied by other unpleasant symptoms.
When you have a migraine you’ll usually experience a throbbing pain that affects one side of your head, but you may also experience something called a migraine aura.
Auras can sometimes serve as a warning to let you know that you’re getting a migraine, but you can also experience a migraine aura without getting a headache or experience a migraine without an aura.
Some of the most common symptoms you can experience when you’re getting a migraine include:
Although the exact cause of migraines isn’t known, there are lots of triggers that people have noticed tend to induce a migraine.
These triggers are different for everyone, so it can be wise to keep a diary of when your migraines happen so you can try to work out when and what triggers them for you.
Some of the most common migraine triggers you may want to keep track of include:
For most cases of a migraine, the standard off the shelf treatments, paracetamol and ibuprofen, should be enough to help relieve the effects and successfully ease all aches and pains.
When those don’t work, an over the counter or prescribed treatment is likely the course required so you will need to speak to a doctor, pharmacist or specialist.
Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.
This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?
If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.
We’re here to answer all of your questions about which painkillers you can take together, which you can’t, and which other medicines shouldn’t be taken with your pain relief.
