There is no scientific evidence that hot water, whether in the shower or bath, helps migraines.
However, it can help relieve tension in the body and reduce stress, a common trigger of migraines.
Migraine is a type of headache that causes severe, throbbing pain or throbbing pain, usually on one side of the head. These can last for hours or even days.
The American Migraine Foundation estimates that one in ten Americans, 39 million, live with migraines.
About 28 million of those are women and girls, as women are at least three times more likely to experience migraines than men.
Some research suggests that low estrogen levels, which usually occur when a woman is on her period, may be to blame.
Symptoms vary, but migraines are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to sound and light.
There are four stages of migraine, although not everyone goes through them all: prodrome, aura, attack, and postdrome.
Prodrome happens one or two days before a migraine attack and its symptoms are easy to miss. Subtle symptoms include constipation, mood swings, food cravings, neck stiffness, increased urination, fluid retention and frequent yawning, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Some people with migraines have warning symptoms such as an aura. These may include visual disturbances such as flashing lights, tingling on one side, or difficulty speaking.
An aura usually develops minutes to hours before a migraine. It usually involves visual disturbances such as bright spots or flashes of light, but there may also be weakness or numbness in the face or one side of the body, as well as difficulty speaking.
A migraine attack itself lasts from four hours to three days. For some, they occur occasionally, but for others, they can strike several times a month. Afterward, you may experience a postdream, which leaves you feeling exhausted or confused for up to a day.
It’s still unclear what causes migraines, but some triggers include menstruation, drinking alcohol or coffee, stress, not getting enough sleep, weather changes, certain foods, and medications.
