In brief: Identify triggers

There are certain foods and aspects of lifestyle that can trigger or worsen headaches and migraines.
The best way to identify triggers is to maintain a headache diary and keep a list of foods eaten before your migraine. Common triggers include chocolate, caffeine, cheese, msg, processed meats, alcohol, smoking/being around smoke, stress, skipping meals, lack of sleep or too much sleep.
