Btw, thanks for your responses in the past.  This is a great site.  Nice to be among fellow migraineurs!
I'm familiar with the common triggers for migraines, and try not to overdo.  My question is how long does it take for a trigger to do its magic.  I realize different things affect people differently.  Wine "goes to my head" within minutes......good thing I don't care for it anyway.  My question is what is the longest length of time would most of you say a trigger can fester into a migraine?  I sometimes try to figure out what might have brought it on--cheddar cheese the day before, etc.  A lot of times, I come up with nothing.  Do you think 48 hours is plenty of time for a trigger to take affect?  Through all my researching, I've not run across anything somewhat specific?    Thanks, Vicki

hi there Vstitch,

For me often enough I either have a sudden migraine (nothing leads up to it) OR 24 hours of warning, which unfortunately I have never been successful to stave them off.

Many things can cause me to have a migraine however, often enough it's environment/al and physical cycle changes, lights, stress etc., the only consumption cause is beer.

take care,
