I chose Food as the trigger in your poll however odors, weather changes, and stress can also trigger my headaches. :-)

I chose food also but I know that perfume, sunlight and glare and squinting can make them worse. I must say aslo that if I have a good cry for any reason I will end up with the most whopping headache ever. To much chocolate can cause one.

Thanks for your comments.

I just found out today that I have Type 2 diabetes. My blood sugar, taken at my doctor's office this morning two hours after a light breakfast was extremely high. Two other tests were also much too high.

Although my doctor said high blood sugar brings other symptoms, one of his nurses says it's possible that having my blood sugar going up and down frequently might be triggering my migraines. I certainly am not happy that I have diabetes, but it will be good if getting my blood sugar under control will also get these migraines under control.  I was very upset after fainting in my physical therapy session a couple of weeks ago, but if that had not happened, I would not have found out about my diabetes. I thank God for watching over me.

Guess I'll be spending some time on the diabetes forum, too.

My main triggers are hormonal and weather-related. Since I live in Minnesota and the weather changes frequently, I have headaches most days of the week. I used to run marathons, then had to just walk, but now can hardly excercise due to the migraines - this exacerbates the migraines. Since regular exercise helps prevent migraines, this is a bit of a Catch 22. Any suggestions?

Hi Laura,

Exercise does work, unfortunately it does trigger migraines as well. I have found that starting slow and working through it is the way to do it. Start with 10 minutes each day walking - or whatever you can handle without triggering a bad headache. Take a triptan or Aleve before hand if that helps but beware of rebound headaches. Then each week add five minutes. On the days where you can't possibly move, let yourself off the hook but do your best to not let those days outnumber the days you go out. I find it best to do this outside, no matter what the weather. Eventually the headaches will subside, you just have to perservere.
