Common Triggers of Migraine

Dr. Harry Salinas, Plastic Surgeon with Miami Cancer Institute, says there are a lot of triggers that are very common for migraine patients, such as spicy foods, stress, alcohol, and sounds. He also explains that the patients that have surgically treatable migraines are patients whose trigger is actually a nerve compression syndrome. He says those patients are managed medically and are referred back to primary care physicians and neurologists who try a variety of medications to manage their symptoms.
