There are specific culprit foods which can trigger migraine in particular, including chocolate, cheese, pickles, chilli peppers, olives, citrus fruits, processed meats and pizza [sorry]. Of course everybody is different and any of these foods may or may not affect migraine sufferers. They have though been frequently reported as triggers by a large proportion of people. Keep a note of what you have eaten before an attack to help identify your foods to avoid.

3. Risk Factors
Women who develop persistent migraines and who smoke and are on birth control, are at increased risk of ischemic stroke and should consult their doctors. It is important not to ignore this kind of red flag and to seek advice.
