Migraine triggers can include foods, beverages, activities and exercise, medications, stress, sleep deprivation, bright lights, hunger, odors, hormones, and other changes.
To help determine what triggers your migraines, print the list below. Then check the list for potential migraine triggers when you get the first signs of an attack. After a few weeks or months, review the checklist to see if you can find a pattern for your migraine triggers. While triggers can be tricky to determine, chances are that the items that get the most checks may be your key personal triggers.
