The Times of India - 14th une 2011 - Alcohol drinks not main culprit for migraine

Researchers have indicated that the role of alcoholic drinks that are considered to trigger migraine in patients is poorly understood.

While retrospective studies tend to include alcohol as a trigger for an attack, the authors describe that in a recent prospective study (in which information on the factors that could potentially trigger an attack were collected prior to the migraine attack), menstruation, stress, and fatigue were found most commonly to relate to a subsequent attack.

In the present paper, the authors reviewed the role and mechanism of the action of alcohol or other components of alcoholic drinks in relation to alcohol-induced headache. They conclude from their review that reports overestimate the role of alcohol, as well as other foods, in the triggering of migraine.

Tell my craving for lager and lime that. I sometimes give in......on a nice sunny day ...BBQ....everyone else doing it.....sometime when I forget about the last time I gave in..... affraid
Usually 2/3 days later after just 1 half I swear to all thats holy I will never do it again. I tried putting it down to lots of other things as well. But come to realize its just not worth making the excuse....its my beloved lager and lime....so never again I have banned it from the house. I dont like wine so there is no problems there x I can take 1 glass of that very now and again x
Life is so unfair
