Along with sleep deprivation and stress, scientists have long known that sudden, high-intensity exercise can trigger migraines. Migraines are attributed to cerebral blood vessels going through phases of constriction and dilation, stretching the nerves around them. This stretching of the nerves causes them to send pain signals, equating to migraines. Sudden high-intensity exercise is hypothesized to trigger migraines by dilating these blood vessels. Recent research has demonstrated that a steady warm-up and cool-down along with continuous aerobic exercise can actually help individuals increase their exercise capacity without increasing the duration and frequency of migraines.
