Migraine headaches affect up to 15% of the U.S. population and are a leading cause of disability and missed school or work. What many don’t realize is that allergies and migraines are strongly interconnected. In fact, patients with hay fever are up to 10 times more likely to develop migraine headaches than those who do not have allergies. The reason for this, in part, is the histamine connection. Histamine is a chemical released in the body that causes many of the symptoms most allergy sufferers experience- itching, sneezing, coughing, and itchy/watery eyes. So for many patients, the histamine released during an allergy attack may also affect their migraines.
Dr. Rotskoff has studied this connection between allergies and migraines extensively. He has successfully implemented natural treatment regimens that can help the majority of patients who have continued to suffer from migraine, sinus, and allergy related headches.
