Dr. Pastore shares his history with migraines and the signs, symptoms, causes, treatments and science behind migraines.
Talking points include:
- The 4 stages of the migraine, including the “migraine hangover”
- A sub-class of migraines called allodynia - the experience of pain from stimuli that isn't normally painful (ex - pain caused by steam/water from a shower)
- What triggers migraines, including MSG, aspartame, and tyramine-containing foods such as dairy, yeast extract & fermented foods
- The prevalence of dairy being a trigger in Dr. Pastore’s migraine patients & how to follow a one-month dairy elimination diet
- Why it's probably NOT the weather causing your migraine
