Dr. Pastore shares his history with migraines and the signs, symptoms, causes, treatments and science behind migraines.

Talking points include:

  • A sub-class of migraines called allodynia -  the experience of pain from stimuli that isn't normally painful (ex - pain caused by steam/water from a shower)
  • What triggers migraines, including MSG, aspartame, and tyramine-containing foods such as dairy, yeast extract & fermented foods 
  • The prevalence of dairy being a trigger in Dr. Pastore’s migraine patients & how to follow a one-month dairy elimination diet
  • Why it's probably NOT the weather causing your migraine
