Many factors are known to trigger a migraine. You need to identify the ones that affect you. Avoiding these factors may reduce the frequency and severity of attacks.

  • Keep a diary for a few weeks to help to pinpoint trigger factors.
  • Avoid any food that brings on an attack. Common dietary triggers of migraine include red wine, chocolate, and cheese (especially matured cheese).
  • Eat regularly, because missing a meal may trigger an attack.
  • Follow a regular sleep pattern if possible, because changing it may trigger an attack.
  • If stress is a trigger, try relaxation exercises.
