triggers for headaches and migraines

preventing a headache is a lot easier than treating one.
  • Stress
  • Drinking alcohol, and red wine in particular
  • Sensory overload — exposure to lights that are too bright, sounds that are too loud, or smells that are overpowering
  • Dehydration — not drinking enough water
  • Too much sleep or not enough sleep
  • Exercising too rigorously
  • Hormonal changes
  • Not eating frequently enough
  • Smoking
  • Straining your eyes reading or sitting at a computer
  • A difference in your caffeine intake — just skipping your morning cup for one day can cause a caffeine-withdrawal headache
  • Food additives or naturally-occurring substances, including nitrates in processed meats, MSG in fast food and Chinese food, tyramine found in certain aged cheeses and soy-based foods, and the artificial sweetener aspartame
  •  blog it
