Fluorescent and incandescent lighting can be too bright, and fluorescent lighting (which includes those energy-saving compact fluorescent bulbs) also generates a high-frequency flicker some migraineurs are susceptible to. Therefore, try low-wattage bulbs labeled “soft light,” and don’t leave bulbs exposed to the eye. A heavier light shade or opaque or dark light fixture filter may also be helpful for migraine avoidance in some people. Screen flicker or excessive glare from a computer monitor can also precipitate a migraine attack. Because of that, try adjusting your color and contrast settings to reduce glare. Some computers allow alteration of the monitor screen frequency to minimize flicker; talk to a computer professional about making these changes.
Does Loud Sound Causes Migraine Attacks ?
Sound Loud and/or persistent noise may also bring about migraine attacks in some people. Some people have a particular sensitivity to high-decibel or high-frequency sounds. This sensitivity to sound, or phonophobia, continues through a migraine attack, which is why many migraineurs seek quiet places to recover.
Does Strong Smells Like Perfumes Cause Migraine Headaches ?
Smell Whether it’s a result of chemicals found in fumes or a reaction to scent, exposure to certain odors can cause migraine in some people. This sensitivity to odors can range from traditionally “pleasant” but strong smells like perfumes and scented candles, to fumes from chemicals, secondhand smoke, pollution, and automobile exhaust. Pungent odors are the most likely to become migraine triggers.
