Migraine Relief

Thank you very much for writing such a complete and useful article on migraines ("New Ways to Spell Relief for Migraines" by Dave Larsen, Feb. 24). As a sufferer myself, I found it extremely interesting and informative.

May I mention that cigarette smoke is an important trigger in migraines, as is a stuffy, unventilated room that has no access to air. Can I also be so bold as to add that a migraine sufferer needs to drink plenty of liquid. Not drinking for four hours, in the case of a migraine sufferer, seems to lead to dehydration, and a trigger.
