I've had them for almost 30 years, I really don't know the triggers either. I started keeping a log, but that only served to tell me how often I was having them. Sometimes I would get a couple per week, other times go 6 months without one. I will tell you this, however. In January 2013 I radically changed my diet. No sugar, no gluten, no dairy. (After 5 months I added back fruit.) In the time period from Dec 2012 to now I've had one migraine, occurring in May 2013. I'm not sure what to think, other than once I went off the deep end with my diet, things changed. Also, my seasonal allergies, which usually pushed me to get prescription meds each spring and summer, almost completely disappeared. The doctor that suggested these diet changes said it's probably due to an underlying allergy to 'something,' and in my case most likely dairy. Once I quit the dairy, my body just seemed to settle down.Keep in mind that I've had breaks in my migraine occurrences before, but this time I'm somewhat hopeful I've found a real key to the puzzle.
Been having migraines with aura since I was 11. As I got older, I realized mine seem to be brought on by stress. The bad part: I have anxiety and I am often stressed. Sometimes I wouldn't feel stressed, and would get a migraine, but I realized I was stressed. I tried every med on the market without much success, so I just started using OTC meds. No matter what, my migraines last 4 hours regardless of what I take. I'mdown to maybe 3 per year, but I can't tell you how. And now my stress seems to manifest itself in other physical symptoms. I kinda want the migraines back (insane I know)
