Why I have a constant headache: what foods should be excluded and forgotten
Migraine, one of the most painful headache conditions, affects millions of people around the world. Research indicates that in Russia approximately 15-21% of cases of primary headache are associated with migraine. However, what can trigger this condition? Neurologists identify a number of factors that may play a role in the development of this disease.

One of these factors is a violation of sleep patterns, both its lack and excess. Interestingly, even too much sleep can cause migraines. Therefore, in many cases of migraine, symptoms are most often observed on weekends. Hunger can also trigger migraines, so it is important to maintain a regular diet.
One well-known migraine trigger is certain foods. For example, cheese, chocolate, citrus fruits and spicy foods can aggravate migraines. Doctors also note the presence of monosodium glutamate and aspartame in certain foods, which can also trigger migraines.
