Possible triggers

For some people some foods trigger migraines, almost any food especially sweets can trigger your migraine. Example: lets say every time you eat corn you get a migraine you may try to go without corn to see if that is one of your triggers. For some people simply going without a meal can trigger a migraine. Sometimes skipping a meal is all it takes to trigger a migraine.

As said before for many women the menstrual cycle is a main trigger. Some women have migraines prior to the actual cycle, and in some cases women have the migraines through out there whole cycle.

Also in studies it shows that women that usually have migraines during there menstrual cycle after menopause there migraines stop. Another study shows that during a pregnancy, though not in all, brings out migraine attacks. This is most likely caused from stress or physical change in the body.

Environmental triggers as said before are hard to avoid, but the common reasons behind environmental triggers are the changes in the temperature, barometric pressure and even the humidity. Also altitude change may also bring on migraines.

Depression and or stress triggers are looked at due to your mental state of mind. In the past migraine sufferers were to be blamed for the condition, this was mainly in females due to the fact women were labeled as hysterical and sensitive women with headaches. In today’s studies migraines are defined as a neurological condition and migraine patients will no longer have people blame them for there condition they have no control over.

Many resources claim that the end of any stressful situation triggers a migraine. Some say when your body has had more than it can handle your body hits you with a migraine, basically letting you know that your body needs rest. This is not a scientific fact yet rest is a key factor in helping people with migraines.
