Will I Ever Find My Trigger?

I'm a 54-year-old woman living in Scotland. I've suffered a migraine since my mid-20s... my migraine frequency changes. They started off 5/6 a month then jumped up to 10 a month then every day then 2 a day most days then calmed down again, to barely 2 a month & now they've come back to 4/5 a week. I know stress, tiredness, flowery sweet smells can trigger migraines for me but I get them even altho I avoid these triggers...currently on Sumatriptan having tried many other meds & natural remedies... I'm really interested in how others cope with their symptoms & which medications everyone is on... thank you for allowing me to be part of your community, hopefully, we can all help each other ??
