Baromatic pressure (right before a big storm moves in) and provalone cheese.

Glade plug-ins give me totally debilitating and nauseating migraine headaches for days on end. I don't know how anyone can have those in their house.

More import is what triggers yours. If these are seasonal Spring / Fall it might not be a migrane.

If a alcoholic beverage brings in the demons, it really might not be a head ache at all... I am talking like 1/2 a can of beer.

If you have a headache on one side only, it isn't a migrane at all.

I haven't had a migraine in years, thank goodness, but the few that I've gotten were all stress-related. In every single instance, I could identify a major and very unusual event that caused an emotional firestorm three to six hours before the headache started.

My younger kid (age 25) has the same tendency. When he tells me that he's having migraine problems, I ask him how many classes he's failing this semester, since there is an almost perfect one-to-one correlation between the headaches and bad exam grades. When he was a youngster, eating large quantities of cheese also triggered migraines for him, but that has faded as he has gotten older.

Estrogen shifts, red wine (I always used to get them on weekends, duh). I don't get them any more, but Imitrex always cured it. I think now, Imitrex has been replaced with Treximet.

Migraines can be on one side or both.

That might be, I am not sure about migrane since I don't have them, but have instead, something called cluster headaches, which are very bad when it is my time. Clusters are always on one side, unless they switch sides. Some people are told, or come to beileve they have migranes, when the reality is cluster headaches.

One telling factor may be cluster people don't care about light.

I am not a know it all, I am just trying to help.

Sudden weather changes can also trigger mine, as well as flashing lights or looking into bright sunlight off and on for long periods of time. I have found though that since I started working out regularly I hardly ever get them. Actually I have had one migraine since I started working out three years ago. When I do have visual disturbances which predict a migraine for me, if I take three Motrin along with an Extra Strength Tylenol and a Benadryl, during the visual disturbances (afterwards is too late) I can make it totally bearable and can at least function without nausea, vomiting, etc. The headache is also much less severe.

OK, I just wanted to make sure that people understand that migraines can and do occur on only one side. I had classic migraine with aura, light and sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting, the whole nine yards. My aura began always on the left side, but once the pain arrived it was only on the right.
