Any ideas why a new migraine?

I've had migraines for over 30+ years. Untreated. Anyway I'm always trying to figure out my cause. Mediclim.com said I was getting another one today ! Is it the new storm system? Barrametric pressure? The wind? Etc.. But I ate 2 of the same things on Sunday & I got a migraine! So curious.. Refried beans or Guacamole Migraine triggers for anyone? So if its a trigger or you have an idea. I'd love to know!! Thank you for any comments. I'm uninsured and have no insurance or any free clinics in my area to help. Doctors that know me know I can't afford any med.s that they think would help. Especially treximet or topamax Etc.. No help on 'scripts. Even when I was prescribed other 'scripts I couldn't afford.

  • Do you keep a food diary? Some common migraine trigger foods are: nitrates (like in cured meats), vinegar, chocolate, cheese, tree nuts, MSG/HFCS. You may want to work with a nutritionist/dietician, or on your own, to structure an elimination diet to try to determine if you have any migraine trigger foods.

  •   HORMONES are my trigger and when I'm getting my period, I'm stressed so the biggest trigger would be hormones.

  • Ive been getting uncontrollable migrains (stress related) but when I was a kid I got them all the time, too. I had MRI and other procedures, but they never found the reason why. Now Im worried I will keep getting them. I get them at least 5x week.

  • Hormones were always my trigger as well. I would get horrible migraines during my period every month. Since I had my daughter they have stopped so I guess my hormones have changed or something.

    I don't get migraines because of the weather but I get horrible sinus headahces whenever it snows, is too humid or to dry. I don't know if migraines could be caused by that as well but it seems possible.
