What are migraine triggers?

Migraine triggers are what can cause a migraine attack. How a person with migraine is triggered is unique to them. 

This is why it's important to identify what may cause a migraine, as well as track them when they happen.

Common triggers for migraine

There are several types of migraine triggers, as well as situations that can cause a migraine attack. Triggers can be predictable if you know what can cause an attack. Yet, you may not be able to avoid them. Here are some common migraine triggers:


Stress leading up to and during travel, change in diet due to limited food options, sleep disruption and weather pressure changes can combine to cause a migraine attack.


Up to 75% of people who menstruate find they experience migraine attacks around their period — otherwise known as "menstrual migraine."


Prolonged screen time, anxiety, coffee or caffeinated tea and your commute to work could spark a migraine attack.


Staying up late at a party with bright lights and loud music, while consuming alcohol can contribute to a migraine attack being triggered.
