After months of non-stop migraine I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I have known for a while the MSG was a big trigger as were almost all chemical odors. I had been avoiding MSG as it was listed in foods, but was still having lots of headaches. Then I picked up a book at the library's used book sale about food sensitivity in kids who have ADD. Lo and behold, there are a lot of the same sensitivities. So using the info in the book, I fine-tuned my diet and within 3 days, of very strictly avoiding the many names that MSG can hide behind I was 95% headache free and have stayed that way now for 3 weeks!
I see a new neurologist on 12/31 and I hope that I will be able to start weaning off of some of my preventive meds.
For anyone reading this, please take the time to do a really thorough migraine diary. I know it is hard to do, but it is so worth it to find the triggers and to eliminate them if at all possible.
