Whether you’ve got a migraine from a stressful day, or possibly a hangover from a happenin’ New Year’s Eve, the pain you’re left to deal with can be a real bummer, to say the least. If you have a migraine, it’s important to first identify the root cause of your headache before you turn to finding a solution. While some headaches can come from stress or a night out on the town, others may actually come from your diet or hormonal swings, along with medication, environmental exposures and more.
Common Headache Triggers
For example, over-the-counter antihistamines and decongestant along with some antidepressants, blood pressure medications, oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, and pain medications can all cause headaches as a possible side effect. Natural foods like chocolate, caffeine, red wine and alcohol, wheat, fermented foods, cheese, dairy, peanut butter, and even citrus fruits also contain natural chemical compounds that may trigger a headache.
