• Certain foods trigger migraines, such as chocolate, and red wines. Also the majority of sufferers drink lots of Caffene at the onset of a Mirgaine, because it dilates your blood vessels.

  • I believe chocolate and cheese aren't helpful. On the other hand a lot of other stuff can trigger a migraine.... I suffered acute migraine for 11 years when I was younger. I left my husband and have never had one since. Quite a coincidence, don't you think?
  • There is an enzyme called tyramine which is present in several different foods, and if you have an intolerence to this it builds to toxic levels and the result is migraine. This is why it is often impossible to pin one food down as the culprit. In my case, a food intolerence test showed this was the case and I am now free of migraines.

  • sugarry food and caffiene should be avoided.
  • I know from second hand experience that very cold foods or beverages trigger migraines, but one of the best ways to cut them in half is always wear sunglasses outdoors, and not spend too much time around air conditioners. I know a traditional cure though if you'd like to avoid painkillers - rubbing vinegar on the temple. Also putting your head under the blanket so you breath in the air you exhaled also helps a little.
