    Hi csinger,

     

    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,

    Nancy

    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.Smile

    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).
