I know this thread is about food and it seems my only remaining food trigger these days is anything with oranges in it. When I was 35 I started having migraines almost daily. Fortunately, Imitrex worked for me so I was able to function although it was costing me thousands of dollars every year because insurance would not pay for the quantity I needed. At the age of 56, I started a diet and exercise regimen because I was overweight. I ended up training for triathlons so I am swimming, biking, and / or running six days a week anywhere from 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Yes, I still work full time and take care of my aging father. A few months ago, I realized my migraines were almost completely gone. It must be a side effect of all the exercise I am doing. So never underestimate the benefits you can receive from exercise. I was not expecting that. I eat almost anything I want now too.
