Silent Migraines

@gwynboom @lisalucier My migraines were definitely hormonal and went away after menopause so there's no help for your son there. Even though they were from hormones though I definitely noticed that certain foods made them worse, like chocolate (I could eat white chocolate) and onions. I know that some people have problems with aged cheese, and vinegar. Vinegar may have exacerbated mine when I had one but I don't think it ever caused one. Figuring out foods that contribute is a trial and error thing and it varies for everyone, but the two I mentioned are very common triggers.

I hope you are able to find some answers. I know too well the misery of migraines, and now my daughter is going through that too. I have heard that Botox injections can help, and there is another procedure now also that supposedly offers great relief. I wish I remembered more about it but I can't. If you are interested in that I will ask my daughter, she may remember.

Botox helped someone I know too. Good luck

Yes he has noticed that food plays a factor in the intensity of his symptoms.. he’s been staying away from nitrates, chocolate, caffeine, msg etc and the intensity of his symptoms have lessened but still intense if that makes sense…
