Hello all! Im a moderator from the CP forum who spent decades suffering migraines, not so much since starting menopause.
I was reading an article on CNN and got redirected to website, specifically July 13,2011 an article titled dehydration as a trigger. Very in-depth article on dehydration and how and when it occurs and why its not a listed trigger.

Thought I would share and if it helps one headache then that's a plus!

I found even mild dehydration combined with descending from a high altitude (12,500ft) to be a guaranteed trigger for a three-day migraine. I doubled my water intake and take Excedrin migraine before descending. So far no more migraines from climbing.
