Answer

Answer

A food diary is an alternative option to an elimination diet, because certain foods cause migraine symptoms almost immediately (eg, red wine, MSG), whereas other foods (eg, chocolate, cheese) may cause symptoms the next day. The diary should include all foods consumed for 24 hours before the onset of a dizzy spell.
