Anybody can develop migraines, but certain people have a higher risk of experiencing them. Migraine triggers can include:

  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Alcohol
  • Certain foods
  • Skipping meals
  • Dehydration

Other triggers include some medications, stress, sleep deprivation, too much exercise, tobacco, and caffeine withdrawal. Similarly, you may be more likely to experience migraines if you have a family history of them.
