My main trigger is dehydration. Once I have a migraine there's nothing I can do except rehydrate, sleep and some nurofen plus.
Also chocolate can be a trigger in large quantities (Easter I'm looking at you)

Prior to having dd I was getting them weekly/fortnightly. I feel your pain.
I was on preventative medication (will post the name when I remember) but also had to have an injection once I got one. It was Sumatriptan (Imitrex) I think and that seemed to sort me out within an hour.
You still feel foggy for a while, but it definitely helped.
We never were able to find my triggers.

Just thought I would add if you throw up a tablet probably won't help you. That's why I needed the injections. I would constantly throw up and so any medication I took (I.e nurofen and sumatriptan in tablet form etc) didn't help because I would vomit most of it up.

Oh, I know a chronic sufferer who has to take Panadol & Coke as the high caffeine helps.

Yes, I'm pretty sure mine are triggered by hormones as I get them more frequently when pregnant or changing contraceptives. They are just so inconvenient as I have to get dh to come home and I am stuck in bed for the rest of the day. I have no idea how people with no support network look after children with one

Wow so many other sufferers who suffer so much too.
I am suprised at the caffeine thing.. I thought that may have been a trigger for mine.. definately chocolate or sweets in high doses and also getting too hot which I think is a wierd one but can set me off
Im just praying this new medicine works.. its so hard dealing with this every week and having a 2yr old. Im relying heaps on dh to tale control or leave work when one comes on

It can definitely be a trigger for some people. So just be careful. It's a trigger for my dad.

I suffer from migraines, sometimes 4-5 a month.
My hormones trigger 1 a month regardless. My other triggers are too much or not enough sleep, dehydration, or my neck being out.
At the first symptoms I have 2x 500mg aspirin with 9mg codeine.
After about 4-6 hours I have ibuprofen with 12mg codeine.
That gets me by without throwing up or passing out. And will often give me time to get home from work
