hmmm dh GETS them from exercise. For him it seems to be related to low glycogen stores. His body doesnt transition to the fat burning zone well. His migraine doc says there is no correlation but EVERY time he gets one it is when he doesnt overfuel before a long ride. He is so freaking sick of gu and gatorade, but if he skips, he gets migraine.
That's interesting, Ennay. I'm currently trying to keep a track of when I get migraines after running to try and identify a trigger. Anecdotally, I was leaning towards heat as a trigger as it mostly happens on hot days.The last one was on a Sunday morning, running for over an hour on a very small breakfast, so the fuel hypothesis could also be correct.
My mum told me a friend of her's takes glucose when she starts getting the visual aura and that often heads off the headache. I've yet to try it.
