There are many triggers that may bring on a migraine headache. There also underlying reasons why you may be sensitive to certain triggers. Triggers can be “stackable” or “cumulative.” This means that some triggers might not bring on a Migraine if we encounter just one, but “stack” two or more together, and they bring on a Migraine.
