  1. Re: Migraine Triggers

    I soul like to mention something that would fall under the other category, sound. When I was younger I used to get severe migraines in music class while practicing the recorder. I was under a lot of stress at the time so and i was put through a battery of test until they found I had a sensitivity to high pitch sound and I was taught some meditation methods for relaxation as my blood pressure seemed to spike when the margin came on. It helped me In a lot of ways although I am still sensitive to those kind of sounds I don't get migraines from it anymore. Just thought I'd share that invade it can help someone. They do simple auditory test for this but it was done by a specialist.
    Being at peace with yourself is truly living.

    Re: Migraine Triggers

    I started digging after experiencing frequent migraines (including abdominal migraines) and found a connection with neurotransmitters and minerals associated with neurotransmitters. I found some sort of link with magnesium.

    Since I've been taking a large daily dose of well-absorbed forms of magnesium such as chelate, citrate, orotate or carbonate, I no longer get migraines or migraine-related symptoms. If I forget one day, I'll get a migraine without fail or get certain related symptoms, even if it's just the crazy neck and shoulders.

    Since then I've started to believe there are a good variety of health problems that might be related to modern food and people not being taught the importance of certain nutrients. Eating large amounts of whole grains fell out of favour at some point, but when you process the grain and take away the bran and other parts, you lose most or all of the magnesium, and this used to be a huge dietary source. Growing up I was taught nonstop about the importance of iron, but I'm convinced now that tons of other minerals that aren't talked about much are extremely essential to health, and many people may have unknowingly all but lost certain nutrients from their modern diet. Hope this isn't too off-track but it has helped me so, so much and I don't know if it could help others.

    I never heard of abdominal migraines, and found this article among others describing the condition.
