So far it is not possible to determine the exact causes that cause migraines, but it is possible to mention some factors that can lead to this pathology. Yaya warned that stress, lack of sleep properly and eating certain foods affect the onset of this disease.
“Migraines are not hereditary. It is a very patient-specific disease. However, there are some factors that can trigger this such as not sleeping well, constant stress and even a series of foods that can trigger the onset of a migraine attack.
The reason is that when you eat certain foods, the body releases a substance called histamine, which is present in the tissues of our bodies and is the cause of all the described symptoms.
Eating chocolate, wine, aged cheese, some types of seafood and Chinese foods (they contain glutamate) are among the foods that unfortunately can trigger a migraine attack, so I recommend avoiding them.
