I drank two glasses of ( not from concentrate ) pomegranate juice and followed with massive migraine. The other time was after eating MSG. I believe that I should only have small amounts of these migraine trigger foods. However, my main triggers are menstruation ( PMT) , menopause and ovulation. My muscles in my shoulders , neck and scalp start to hurt and a migraine follows. My scalp is so sore it’s like it is full of tiny knots! It’s agony! I get very depressed , diarrhoea !! . Trip tan s and Naproxen is my only relief!

    The tenderness of your head and scalp has a name, it’s called allodynia! I share this symptom and was kind of relieved to know I wasn’t the only one who experienced this.

    Thanks for being part of the community. We’re glad you’re here! -All Best, Donna ( team)
