I established a link between my childhood ‘sick’ headaches and chocolates at about 12 years of age and hv never eaten chocolate since. Commercially produced red wine went as soon as I was old enough to legally imbibe. Apart from that
Applies to me or so I’ve thought. Although, has it. My MAV started as episodic, occurring a day or two after eating out in a restaurant. Was it the lights, the noise, or something to do with the food? When I originally researched food, histamine intolerance and tyramine came to light but apparently that is supposed to kick in always within hours, more probably within less than one hour and involves a rash, neither of which applied to me. But, then there’s MSG. More than three years in with chronic 24/7 MAV I have often wondered about some hypersensitivity to MSG. But, how many reasons does one need to cause MAV. Mine has a distinctive hormonal link pattern.
Of course the other way to think of hypersensitivity I suppose is just that it’s just another symptom of migraineurs with their hypersensitive brains, Helen
