Not feeling so hot? Is your head just pounding? There’s a chance you may be suffering from a migraine headache, which can cause intense throbbing or even a pulsing sensation in one or more parts of the head. Migraines are often associated with upset stomach, vomiting, and an unusual sensitivity to both light and sound.
Migraine sufferers know all too well that one of these headaches can leave them virtually incapacitated for hours or even days at a time. That’s why it’s important to know and avoid the food and drink items that can contribute to the development of a migraine…
Arguably, there’s nothing more relaxing than winding down after a long day with a tall glass of wine. But wine, and especially red wine, has been fingered as a probably migraine trigger. According to research by experts in the field, alcohol in general plays a role in an estimated 30 percent (or nearly one in three) of migraine attacks.
It’s still not known why wine plays such a prominent role in the development of migraines. Experts at Mount Sinai Hospital believe it could be the compounds found in wine—including flavonoids and tannins—which trigger migraine headaches.
