Interesting: Your question is suggesting that a glass of wine per week was protective against migraine auras that you have been experiencing for years on and off. There is still lots of information missing, such as what are your symptoms like, why did you decide on abstinence, what is that you tried for treatment for the last 7 years and so on. A neurologist eval should help otherwise in formulating a plan.
