Use this menopause help guide to learn about your menopausal migraines and how to treat them naturally. You can feel better!
The exact cause of pre menopausal migraines is a bit difficult to pin down. While it is clear that they are caused from an imbalance in our hormones, the type of imbalance is a bit trickier to figure out. The culprit could be low estrogen, low progesterone, or too much estrogen.
Make sure to see your doctor to be sure that your migraines are caused by menopause and not a more serious issue.
