Triggers

Migraine Diet

  • By Pendragon

    Hey guys,
    I’m trying to start looking into triggers more closely, and food triggers seem to be quite an overwhelming topic. Partially because they’re so variable, and partially because it can take days or minutes to be affected.
    There are a number of books and websites out there about what you should/shouldn’t eat, I’m just wondering if any of the resources are better or more useful than others?
