Migraines and Food

Fri Aug 6 16:05:37 EST 1993

Reading about sensitivity to Phe, Glu, and Asp made me realize that this
might be a good place to post the following question:

I suffer from classical migraines (with aura, i.e. visual disturbance,
preceding the actual pain), but have discovered that they can be triggered
by either orange juice (reconstituted, possibly also fresh) or
chocolate (dark or white).  Is anyone aware of a substance common to
both o.j. and chocolate which could be a migraine trigger?
