Exercise and Migraines

I’ve read many articles over the last couple of months that say that exercising helps headaches and migraines.   I have to admit I’ve often scoffed at those articles. The thought of exercising with a headache, let alone a migraine seemed ridiculous.   Now, I’m not saying I exercise when I have a migraine, that would just be crazy!   However, I have been exercising for 3 months and my migraines and daily headaches have been cut in half!  Did you hear me, by HALF!!!!

Here are some of the articles that I have read about exercise, migraines and headaches.

Migraines: Simple Steps to head off the pain

I usually do about 30 minutes of plain cardio about 2 to 4 times a week (depends on how much time I have) and 2 HIIT routines a week, plus strength training.   I also pay very close attention to my posture at work as I’m a Systems Administrator who sits for most of my work day.  I also try and get regular sleep at minimum 6 to 8 hours every night.

I get my HIIT routines from Liz Moore-Mom In Love With Fitness , Her Facebook Page  Instagram Videos!

Frequency of Migraines and Headaches

Excellent article about headaches and migraine frequency not being low enough.  I have about 5-7 migraines a month and about 3 to 4 headaches a week.  Which isn’t enough for most conventional and non-conventional treatments to be given to me.   I only suffer most of the month with either 5-7 migraines and on average 3 headaches (roughly 15-18 a month NOT counting the migraines).  So sorry, out of luck for insurance covering anything else for me!
