Does coffee cure migraines?
I know it may seem like a weird question and I’ve never known anybody that thought this, but when I take bc powder or Goodys powder or anything it never helps, but coffee seems to work instantly. Maybe I’m just losing my mind?
This is an excellent question, and the answer is, remarkably, YES! If you look at the ingredients on any migraine medicine, they contain caffeine. I will go into detail if you care to keep reading.
The reason migraines start is because of a sudden dilation of the blood vessels in the brain. Simplistically, this increases oxygen levels, and releases a chemical that makes you more susceptible to pain. Your brain thinks it is hurting, when in reality, it is not. The caffeine constricts the blood vessels again, returning them to a semi-normal state.
Here’s another post I made about migraine and coffee.
