Health Tip: Keep a Headache Diary

It may help you pinpoint triggers

(HealthDay News) -- If you suffer from migraines, identifying what you've been eating, drinking or doing can help you keep these painful headaches under control.

The womenshealth.gov Web site suggests what to log in a headache diary:

  • The date and time of the migraine.
  • The activity you were doing and where you were when the pain began.
  • A list of all foods and drinks consumed within 24 hours of when the migraine began.
  • For women, the span of your menstrual cycle.
