I brought some leftover spinach & artichoke dip to work for lunch. My head is now KILLING ME. It's partly, I'm sure, from the allergies. The rest of it, I'm certain, is from the cheese in the dip.

Argh.

What part of that dip are you allergic to?

it's the parmesan cheese. Yummy, but a guaranteed migraine every time.

Well that is weird. I did not know that kind of cheese could cause a migraine.

the dryer, sharper, more aged a cheese is, the more likely it is to cause migraines. Obviously not everyone has the same food triggers, but aged cheese is a pretty common one. It's not generally an issue for me, because frankly, there aren't a lot of aged kosher cheeses. Parmesan is the exception.

You know, I just bought this herbal pillow to help with my migraines, and maybe it might help you a little...

Yay for computers in the house! So glad you're back on LJ!!!

as for the herbal pillow, that's funny, because the smell of lavender hurts my head! :) But thanks for the suggestion! I'm always open to suggestions.
