Food sensitivity: 10-15% of migraine patients exhibit known food sensitivities, and this can include red wine, aged cheeses, nitrites, monosodium glutamate, pickled herring, etc. You may benefit from keeping a record and comparing the foods to online lists of provicative agents. Alternatively, in some cases, true allergies may exist, and testing could be very productive.
