Sleep and Migraine

When you experience chronic migraine, episodic migraine, or migraine occasionally, sleep disruption is often part of the conversation.

Experiencing a migraine can impact your ability to fall asleep, to stay asleep, and to acquire good, restful sleep. 

Yet, the reverse is true as well. 

Having poor sleep can directly impact the chances of experiencing a migraine. 

Many migraine sufferers explain that a migraine occurs not necessarily the day after a poor night’s sleep. Many report a migraine the following day. 

We suggest tracking your sleep and migraine experiences to recognize if there is a connection for you as well.

Things to track in a notebook or online software tool:

  • Timing of sleep
  • Quality of sleep
  • Awakenings
  • Medications taken
  • Migraine episodes
  • Intensity of migraine
  • Timing of onset and ending of migraine episode

With these data points you may be able to have a more clear and accurate conversation with your healthcare providers.

BluTech lenses have a great impact on both sleep and migraine. Wearing BluTech lenses can help reduce migraine symptoms and prevent attacks. These lenses can also impact your melatonin production helping you to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. 

Be sure to also note the times and days that you are using your BluTech lenses. As this can provide an extra layer of detail for you and your healthcare provider to make informed decisions about your health.
