20. If you have frequent headaches, look at what you eat. Foods and beverages may play a role in some headaches, especially migraines. Most of the suspects, such as chocolate, ripe cheeses, and freshly baked yeast products, contain a naturally occurring chemical called tyramine, which may constrict or dilate blood vessels in the brain.
Comments? Do you get headaches? Have you tied them to anything?
Headaches - I started having the aura of a migraine when we were living in Saudi Arabia - vision went wonky, had scotomas and fuzzy vision like old fashioned TV needing to be tuned in. I saw a doctor thinking detached retina (not) and in the USA found out it was probably familial and part of a migraine that only really was full blown once or twice. I have never found anything that triggers them though sometimes changes in weather can give me a regular headache.
Bob: My husband has much less sense of how long things can stay out and still be safe wanting to ave electricity and not put things in the frig hot. I have never had cranberry juice in hot apple cider - bet it would be tasty!
Cindy: Mom used to leave cooked hamburgers out in the skillet for dad...for hours or overnight. We all nibbled on them as we walked by. My sister says she was the only person who did not get Montezuma's revenge in Mexico and she is sure it was the germs we ate that built up her immunity
I have a diagnosis of migraines and use prescription meds when needed. Since menopause I get far fewer but did use my meds recently, effectively, but had another one Thursday. It wasn't so bad and I waited - tried coffee, foods, but it was still there lurking, but not worsening. I think it was related to weather change. We've been all over, up & down, and it was a miserable damp day. No meds and it did go away. I'm not sure about triggers. If you look at the lists of foods, they're all the foods I love. It is in my family and I've had them forever. I really never know when or why they come.
