Could drinking 3 cups of coffee lead to developing a crippling migraine?
The Doctors discuss a new study Harvard University claims that three cups of normal drip coffee a day can trigger a severe headache. The study found that 2 cups (an 8-ounce cup of drip) did not lead to an increase in risk for a migraine, but having the third cup increased someone's risk of by 40 percent. If you have 5 cups, your risk rocketed to 161 percent!
The Doctors explain a migraine is usually a result of a change in blood flow in the brain, and that an excessive amount of caffeine can negatively impact that flow of blood. In addition to medication, the panel shares that acupuncture on the ear, and even sometimes an orgasm can help alleviate a migraine.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork feels this study is a good reminder that moderation is key when it comes to what we eat and drink, and especially with coffee.
