As a result of some research I have done on the Internet, I have come up with a rather speculative idea about how headaches might be cured. I don’t know if anyone else has thought about it or if it will work.
I have discovered that headaches are caused by too much vasodilatation and that adenosine causes vasodilatation.
I have also discovered that caffeine blocks adenosine receptors in your brain and that your brain cells compensate for this by growing more adenosine receptors. This means that when the caffeine has left your system, your brain is now more sensitive to adenosine which means you are now more prone to headaches.
I therefore suspect that people who are more prone to headaches than others may be people who naturally have more adenosine receptors in their brains. What do you think?
My idea is therefore to considerably reduce the number of adenosine receptors in the brain.
Does anyone here know of any drugs or treatments which can do this? I have not been able to find such a drug or treatment.
Would this be safe?
Thank you very much.
