Why do I get migraines?

I was told that my migraines could be caused by my sugar lvls. They are often above 12, That is one answer I got from the docs, another could be from stress, at work, working 12-13 hour days 6 days a week, PLUS I train with the military on Sunday's. That could be another reason, My Final reason could be my lifestyle. What are your reasons for Migraines?

    I wish it was easy to discover your migraine triggers, but for most of us, it takes a lot of trial and error to find the problem. Food allergies, stress, a stiff neck, too much sleep, too little sleep, etc., etc., etc. For me, after years and years and years of trying to figure it out, I found out I had a PFO (hole in the heart) and that I have very sticky blood platelets that were causing mini-strokes/migraines. I am now on a small dosage of a blood thinner that is simply a miracle. Make sure to have your heart checked for a PFO!!!!!!!

    I know it has been years since you made this post about sticky blood but I hope you will respond anyway. Had you ever had food triggers that caused your migraines? Are you able to eat/drink migraine trigger foods while on your blood thinner? Do you think migraine trigger foods cause the blood to become more sticky? Thank you!

    I am curious about Jenxoxo having found she has a hole in the heart and that was causing her migraines. I am going to ask my pain doc about it next time I see her. I've never heard of this being a reason for migraines, but it would cause stress on the body which would cause migraines if you were prone to them.
