People who suffer from migraines know the toll it takes on their lives, but health experts said there may be a way to manage the pain without turning to medications.
Dr. Carolyn Bernstein, who runs the headache center at Boston's Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center, also suffers from migraines. She has been exploring alternative ways to manage the disease.
One possible solution she's found is indoor cycling.
It's a form of exercise ideal for migraine sufferers because it is low-impact, so there are no pounding movements that could make the migraine worse.
"When we exercise, a lot of the time we feel better afterwards," Bernstein said. "We get all kinds of neurotransmitters going in our brain that can decrease pain levels."
Symptoms of a migraines could include nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound changes.
