    Went to bed early last night to be prepared for today - because I wanted to be alert and focused and instead was up from midnight to about 4 am, alternating between heat and ice. It's eased enough that I'm good to go now, so guess the medicine helps. But migraines suck so bad.

    What I've noticed recently is I get one every time I eat something with Peanut Butter. I did not have any Peanut Butter yesterday, but I'm just figuring out that appears to be a trigger - I live off peanut butter, now like pop tarts and red wine - looks like I have to give it up.
    I'm sorry you're still going through this. Glad the meds are helping.

    Peanut butter has been my "comfort" food the last couple of months. I just found out that it's the same for hubby. We were wondering why the peanut butter was disappearing. Do you think a different nut butter would be okay for you?

      Did you reply because she was eating your delicious cousins, aunts and uncles?

        Sucks that you're going through that. Almonds and salmon were two of my triggers. Two things I ate religiously. It didn't happen all the time though, but the fact that I couldn't predict when the food would trigger a migraine was frustrating.

          Me too! Has always been a comfort food! Thank you for asking that question. I had not thought about trying something else, like maybe Almond Butter. Not sure how similar the two are, but it might help ease the pain of having to give up peanut butter a little.

          Peanut knows how delicious they are

          Seems like for a food to be a trigger, it's always something we love to eat often. I would have never thought peanut butter was an issue until I tested going without it. With me, seems like once something's a trigger it is always a trigger. It kicks in pretty quick with the few foods I've found to be triggers. Even if it didn't happen every time though, no food is worth it...

            Lots of nut butters to choose from. Sunflower, walnut, pecan, cashew, macadamia and, of course, hazelnut (with chocolate). I've had hazelnut and almond. Not too bad. Hope you find one you like that doesn't trigger migraines.

              Thank you, Peanut! I'll be honest I had no idea there was such a variety, but intend to try a couple and see how it goes.
