Food Related Migraine/headache?

Does anyone get a migraine/headache almost instantly just after eating?This can be eating anything,I know there’s certain foods that can trigger migraine but it seems no matter what I eat my head gets really bad instantly after eating anything-even after I’ve been trying a strict healthy diet to illuminate the obvious bad foods that could be causing it.I just don’t know if it’s possible to get them just by eating?

I understand that this is varied for each individual. But I will share what has been my life long experience. *Beets, *nitrates, *too much protein, *too little water., *too much sodium, *high fat foods (not in moderation), *leftover foods or *foods stored improperly (or left out too long) become high in *tyramine. *Meat tenderizer. ***MSG this can go by so many other names and synonymous, including; monosodium salt, monohydrate, monosodium glutamate, monosodium glutamate monohydrate, monosodium L-glutamate monohydrate, MSG monohydrate, sodium glutamate monohydrate, UNII-W81N5U6R6U, L-Glutamic acid, monosodium salt, and monohydrate. A big one for me as it is a chemical that causes tastebuds to become irritated and swell, thus increasing flavors in the mouth, increased thirst and for me, the swelling includes, sudden speech impediment and swelling of tongue and blood vessels in the head. Migraine is inevitable. I hope this helps you. 🌼💜

I have found so many triggers but keep finding new ones. MSG's have been a long term issue, teas, sweeteners, pork, cilantro and now parsley. I have had migraines for 36 yrs. My mother had them and her mother had them. Its looking like my 12 yr old son has them and possibly my 5 yr old daughter. Im a preventive med but this isn't no longer controling them.

I will immediately get a migraine from smells and loud sounds. When I eat sometimes it will hit hard and I aslo will get nausea and weakness.... so I will retreat to my bed.

I thought food triggers were a hoax until I seriously tested it recently. Now I know that tree nuts (or tree nut butters), lunch meats and any leftovers older than 2-3 days will give me a nearly instantaneous headache. Other supposed triggers like olives, cheese, avocados and coffee don’t seem to bother me.

I have the same thing, feel fine & soon as eat I get pressure in my head & the headache. I follow a migraine diet, gluten free etc. Doing the Botox & it helps me function but definitely not a cure. Have an appointment with my gastrointestinal doctor next week but not hopeful. I've been to a dozen different specialists & nobody seems to help.
