Over 29 million Americans suffer from migraines. The NTI-tss is indicated for migraine prevention. It is a small nightguard that comfortably fits over your four front teeth. Its patented design keeps your canine and back teeth apart. This separation minimizes the intensity of your nighttime clenching forces.

Migraine Triggers Not As Accurate As We May Think

There has always been a lot of talk around migraines about triggers and discovering what cause your migraines, be it wine, chocolate, cheese, perfumes. . . the list goes on and on, but new research suggests that we may actually have no idea what triggers our migraines.  According to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, migraine triggers are difficult to determine without undergoing more formal testing.

Study researcher Timothy T. Houle, Ph.D., assistant professor of anesthesia and neurology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center said that, "correctly identifying triggers allows patients to avoid or manage them in an attempt to prevent future headaches. However, daily fluctuations of variables - such as weather, diet, hormone levels, sleep, physical activity and stress - appear to be enough to prevent the perfect conditions necessary for determining triggers."

Two studies were published in the journal Headache and in one of them it was noted that there must be three criteria in order for something to be reliably identified as a migraine trigger. 

  1. "Constancy of the sufferer"
  2. "Constancy of the trigger effect"
  3. "Constancy of the trigger presentation"

The other study concluded that is was difficult to pinpoint what exactly the trigger was. 

Even after the countless articles outlining migraine triggers, we still cannot blame them solely on that.
