Headache in women of different ages — causes and treatment

Decem­ber 12, 2016, 04:37 PM

Women are more like­ly than men to suf­fer from headaches. And all because hor­mones join the bou­quet of rea­sons that cause it in the fair sex.



The ves­sels of the brain are sen­si­tive to hor­mon­al fluc­tu­a­tions. That is why, from a young age until the menopause peri­od, many women reg­u­lar­ly expe­ri­ence migraine attacks.

At this age, girls can have a headache for var­i­ous rea­sons. Due to stress, fatigue and over­strain (study, first job, the need to make deci­sions on your own and take respon­si­bil­i­ty for them — how can you avoid a migraine?). An active social life, sleep­less nights, bad habits, diets, intense phys­i­cal activ­i­ty also con­tribute to headaches. Plus, hor­mon­al “storms”. Until the hor­mon­al back­ground nor­mal­izes, and this usu­al­ly hap­pens after preg­nan­cy and child­birth, a woman often suf­fers from the so-called men­stru­al headache. It occurs about a week before men­stru­a­tion due to a sharp decrease in the lev­el of estro­gen hor­mones.

The mod­ern pace of life often puts young and active women in con­di­tions of con­stant emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal stress. Try­ing to suc­cess­ful­ly com­bine career and fam­i­ly, they take on their frag­ile shoul­ders some­times an unbear­able bur­den of respon­si­bil­i­ty. The pay­off for this is a ten­sion headache. The result of con­stant stress can also be hor­mon­al imbal­ance, cycle fail­ure, the occur­rence of PMS (pre­men­stru­al syn­drome), which is almost always accom­pa­nied by migraine attacks. At this age, in women, the head can also split after tak­ing con­tra­cep­tives. Con­tra­cep­tive pills con­tain syn­the­sized estro­gen, which is also called the “puffi­ness hor­mone”. As a result, headache may occur as a side effect.

In women who have entered the vel­vet sea­son of life, age-relat­ed hor­mon­al changes occur — menopause occurs. The lev­el of sex hor­mones (estro­gen and prog­es­terone) is rapid­ly falling. Their defi­cien­cy pro­vokes the appear­ance of char­ac­ter­is­tic symp­toms of menopause — hot flash­es, sleep dis­tur­bances, irri­tabil­i­ty, blood pres­sure drops and headaches. Migraine attacks can be quite severe and pro­longed. They do not car­ry dan­ger, how­ev­er, it is not worth endur­ing pain.

Cit­ra­mon-Dar­nit­sa can help reduce the inten­si­ty of a headache. This time-test­ed drug not only reduces the inten­si­ty of pain, but also has an anti-inflam­ma­to­ry effect.

Thanks to the con­ve­nient form of release in the form of a small blis­ter of 6 tablets, you can always have it at hand. Cit­ra­mon-Dar­nit­sa eas­i­ly fits in a mini-first aid kit, a small hand­bag, a cos­met­ic bag and even a wal­let. You can sim­ply put it in your jeans or trousers pock­et. Wher­ev­er a headache strikes you, you will always be ready to fight back. By the way, Cit­ra­mon-Dar­nit­sa will be a real sal­va­tion not only from headaches, but also from toothache, pain with dys­men­or­rhea, neu­ral­gia and arthral­gia.

Cit­ra­mon-Dar­nit­sa should be tak­en after meals, 1 tablet 2–3 times a day. The main thing is not to exceed the dai­ly dose of 6 tablets.
