Migraine may be aggravated or triggered by specific factors. In a study of 1207 migraine patients, about 3 out of 4 said they have triggers for their migraine attacks.4 When given a specific list of triggers to consider, almost 95% of the people said that their attacks were brought on by certain circumstances or environmental influences.

Common triggers may include:

•Physical exertion or activity
•Hormonal changes
•Skipping meals
•Sleep disturbances and sleeping late
•Weather changes
•Perfume or odor
•Neck pain
