Various Migraine Causes and Conditions

There are various forms of migraine which sufferers in general are probably not aware of, and in addition to those, there's also several other types which are widely unknown and this is probably due to there rarity. There are several causes of headaches that can range from whiplash to sinusitis and other symptoms caused by infectious viral or bacterial diseases.

Included in these are rarer forms of migraine are:

Menstrual Migraine

Each attack has the same warning signs as the common migraine and migraine with aura. However, the migraine attack itself is definitely connected to periods. This type of migraine can be in two forms.

Pure menstrual migraine is the first form. This occurs only around a period. This particular type of migraine affects only 1 in 7 women who are vulnerable to common migraine attacks, according to studies.

Menstrual-associated headache is another form. This occurs at the same time as a period and other times throughout the month. This type of migraine affects a larger number of women, with at least 6 out 10 suffering from attacks. This type of migraine can be prevented or treated. There are treatments that can be used to prevent menstrual migraines from happening, but it is best to consult your doctor.

Abdominal Migraine

This type of migraine is most commonly associated with children. Children usually experience an abdominal pain (or tummy pain) that lasts several hours, rather than a headache. Most cases don't cause headaches, but a mild headache may occur.
