The holiday season may be the most wonderful time of the year, but it is also the time those suffering from migraine get exposed to all sorts of triggers. Winter coats, hot stores, long checkout lines, and looming deadlines can get to the best of us.
Avoid the stress of last-minute shopping
Consider shopping online or catalog shopping
Don’t try to pack too much shopping into one day
Beware of stores with strong scents of the season
Beware of blinking lights that can cause a migraine
Keep a migraine kit handy: earplugs, water, rescue medications, mints or ginger chews for nausea
Don’t skip meals; carry snacks with you
