  Some of the possible triggers for migraines include:
  • Low blood sugar.
  • Foods containing tyramine and /or nitrites – eggplant, potatoes, sausage, , spinach, sugar, aged cheese, and red wine. Other tyramine containing foods include cheese , chocolate, fried food, bananas, plums, broad beans, spinach, tomatoes, and citrus fruit. Foods with high levels of seasoning such as MSG or artificial additives might also contribute to triggering a migraine. Soy products, particularly fermented ones, can contain high tyramine levels. 
  • Food allergies. 
  • Dehydration.
  • Lack of sleep.
  • Bright light, or certain colors of light.
  • Shock, stress, or worry.
  • Loud noise, especially continuous.
  • Changes in the weather or climate.
  • Close proximity to compact fluorescent lights.
  • Hormonal changes.
Be aware if you're "at risk" for getting migraines. 
Some people appear to be more susceptible to having migraines than others. The age range for migraines is around 10 to 40, with those aged 50 and over tending to suffer much less from migraines. Women are three times more likely to have a migraine than men.
