Top 10 Tracking Triggers With a Migraine in Pregnancy
Hormone changes during pregnancy are not the only thing that can trigger migraine headaches. Most women have a combination of triggers. For instance, stress, skipped meals, and lack
of sleep may all trigger a migraine. And something that triggers a migraine one
day may not bother you at all the next. Some migraines last a few hours. Others, if left untreated, could last a full
day or even two. Migraines are quite unpredictable. So while pregnancy may make them worse for
one woman, they might completely disappear for another. A headache diary can let you track your particular
triggers. This will help your doctor decide on what
treatment will work best to relieve your specific symptoms. It may also help you recognize a pattern that
tells you which triggers to avoid while you’re pregnant. Each time you have a headache, write down:
• Your specific symptoms: where you feel the pain, what the pain feels like, and any
other symptoms such as vomiting or sensitivity to noise, smells, or bright light
• The time your headache started and ended • Food and beverages you had during the
24 hours before the migraine • Any change in your environment, such as
traveling to a new place, a change in weather, or trying new kinds of food
• Any treatment you tried, and whether it helped or made the headache worse
Common headache triggers include: • Chocolate
• Caffeine • Foods that contain the preservatives MSG
(monosodium glutamate) and nitrates • Aspartame, the sweetener in NutraSweet
and Equal
