Migraine triggers:

LilienfieldDr. Lisa: Migraines are mysterious and unpredictable at times. There are many migraine triggers and treatment is based on an evaluation of all the potential contributing factors and triggers. Migraine triggers can include weather changes, certain foods, alcohol, caffeine, stress, sleep disruptions, hormonal changes, and overuse of rescue medications. Other conditions that can lower the threshold for migraines include magnesium deficiency, mold exposure, concussions, TMJ, and neck injuries.
