Citrus fruit is on the list of trigger items. Many foods have citric acid as an ingredient. Should they also be avoided?
Our members gave you great information, some people have different triggers from one another. What triggers one person may not trigger the other.
Trigger identification and management is a vital component of managing Migraine disease. One of the best tools for identifying triggers is a good Migraine diary. You can download a free diary workbook from our article Your Migraine and Headache Diary. Some of us have food triggers; some of us don't. It's advisable to determine if your daughter does, and an elimination diet is the best way to do that. For more information and a workbook on this, see Managing Migraine - Migraine Trigger Foods.
I hope this helps,
as usual, you must remember everyone is different.....
for me foods with citric acid are a must......aids my digestion and they are not a migraine trigger for me
I avoid any foods with citric acid since i have found them to trigger my migraines.I suggest you try them and see if they are a trigger for you and if so avoid them in future.Good luck.
For me personally, the only citrus food I avoid like the plague is oranges. I don't even eat fods that have it as an ingredient. Same goes for OJ and Sunny D. If it has orange in it I avoid it.
Haven't wanted to figure out about other citrus fruits either. Although I do limit bananas and though I don't go out of my way to eat them, I still try to avoid them as well.
But it depends on the person (my opinion).
