Known Triggers for Migraine Headaches

Many have experienced the pain of a headache. I suffered for 3 days this week and I knew it was time for me to refresh my memory on the known triggers of Migraine Headaches.
Symptoms and Causes
Avoid specific foods that are known triggers for migraine headaches. Chocolate, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, sodas, refined sugars, gluten-containing grains, aged cheeses and peanuts are some of the more common food culprits that may be causing your migraines. Reintroduce potential problem foods one at a time over a period of weeks to find out which one is causing the problem. Taking these foods out of your diet may feel like a sacrifice; however, if your headaches are eliminated or greatly reduced, then it may be worth it.

Avoid MSG, chemical flavor enhancers in food. Many processed foods contain chemical additives like monosodium glutamate (MSG), aspartame, nitrates, sulfites, and "natural" and artificial flavors that can act as chemical triggers in bringing on migraine headaches.
