I have done many trials and errors diet experiments as I know that 90% of my triggers are down to food. I have the usual culprits : monosodium glutame and anything with sulphite which is difficult as those products can come under many names. So a simple biscuit or even half a glass of wine will trigger a migrain for 3 days, 3 days of being a zombie, waking up at night, having problems to express myself, and feeling utterly drained not mentioning the headache and the feeling nauseous... You all know what I mean! In my case migraleve helps which is great as all the triptan medicine does not agree with me. However, I recently found that THE TIME I EAT has a huge impact. So I can have 1 glass of wine at lunch but none at dinner time. I can have an apple any time but NOT AFTER 8pm (I usually go to be at 10.30/11.30). Since I have my main meal at lunch time, stopped eating breakfast and eating light at dinner time, I reduced the amount of migrains treamendously. I can't cut all the additives so I help my liver with Yakult and live yughurt as well as green or white tea and ginger that I crush and pour boiling water with a few drops of honey. I went from having a migraine nearly consistently to the odd occasion. which is great. There are still 10% of triggers I have not identified. In particular, I don't understand why a simple apple for example or a plain yoghurt will still give me a problem if eaten after 8pm. Any ideas please?
