    Hi Shazz!

     

    Pretty much anything food related, I think, can be a trigger for a migraineur. We have a list of common food triggers here on our site: Manging Migraine: Migraine Food Triggers.

     

    I think it depends on you and how your body reacts to certain foods. It is completly possible that strawberries trigger you. Maybe strawberries are just a stackable trigger for you as well.

     

    See the article above, there is a worksheet in there to help you with food triggers. Also, since you are seeing a new pattern now - it may be a good time to start a Migraine and Headache Diary, if you do not already have one.

     

    Good Luck!

    Hi. Might be coincidence but I too have just had a spate of daily migraine attacks -  out of the blue and have had quite a lot of strawberries too. Curious. My usual triggers are Marmite (guaranteed so sadly don't go near it any more) and if I put my back out - sorted by a visit to an osteopath.
