If you're one of the 18 million Americans who suffer from migraines, you might find some relief by changing what you eat, suggests Ladies' Home Journal magazine. About 30 percent of migraines appear to be triggered by food. (Other causes include hormonal changes, stress, excessive smoking, even strong odors and bright lights.) Listed here are the most common troublemakers for people who are prone to migraines. CHOCOLATE: It contains phenylethylamine, which constricts blood vessels in the head.

NutraSweet, the popular sugar substitute that has been a center of controversy since it was allowed on the market, does not cause severe headaches, according to a new study. Researchers, whose work was financed by the National Institutes of Health and the NutraSweet Co., tested people who believed that NutraSweet, which is known generically as aspartame, gave them headaches and found they were just as likely to get headaches after consuming dummy substitutes. The conclusion of researchers at Duke University in North Carolina was the second vote of confidence for NutraSweet last week.

She was supposed to be on her way to a neon-lit chapel where an Elvis impersonator waited to officiate at her wedding. Instead, the 27-year-old woman sat in a thin hospital gown on an examining table in a cold emergency room, anxiously waiting for news. A week before, she had gone to see her primary physician. She had been dealing with a series of strange symptoms over the summer. A curious, maddening itch. Achy joints from time to time. Vicious headaches that she supposed were like migraines, although she had never had them before.

Flyers star defenseman Chris Pronger will visit with two Pittsburgh concussion specialists on Wednesday, and the club hopes they can explain the cause of his headaches. A local doctor on Monday said a blow to the eye - which Pronger suffered on Oct. 24 against Toronto - can cause a concussion. After taking an inadvertent stick to the eye and missing six games, Pronger returned and played five games. He was then sidelined because the team said he was suffering from a virus.

Let's be frank for a moment. It might be nice if Philadelphia hosted the 2004 Democratic National Convention. But the Dems would have to spend mighty liberally if they came here, because with its financial woes and urban wounds, the city simply cannot afford wooing and holding a convention in the near future. The city had to raise $66 million in 2000 for the GOP convention, largely with the help of potent former Gov. Tom Ridge. His successor, lame duck Gov. Schweiker, is preoccupied with a state debt and a promise of $75 million for Philadelphia schools.

About 100 people were evacuated Monday from the Acme grocery store at the Lawrence Park Shopping Center after noxious fumes caused headaches, dizziness and vomiting among customers and employees. Fourteen people reported lung and eye irritation, which was caused by an unidentified substance. Nine were taken to Mercy Haverford Hospital, of whom three were admitted for observation even though they were listed in good condition. The hospitalized adults were released yesterday morning, said hospital spokeswoman Rebecca Rabalsky.

There's a vein in Dave Hisler's right temple. Around Malvern Prep, and especially to members of the track team, it's known as "the vein. " Hisler, the Inter-Ac League's top sprinter, has asthma. When he runs, he gets pounding, vein-popping, asthma-induced migraine headaches. The harder he runs, the more his head hurts. "I'll be fine during a race and for a minute or two afterwards," Hisler said. "Then, all of a sudden, my head starts pounding. It kills me. The vein (in his temple)

Sports and concussions are a common combination. A 1991 survey by the National Center for Health Statistics found that 300,000 Americans had suffered a concussion involving loss of consciousness while engaged in sports or recreational activities during the previous year. The technical definition of a concussion, said Thomas Gennarelli, the Flyers' team neurosurgeon, is a "temporary disturbance of neurological function due to trauma. " Concussions occur when the head moves violently.

As she stood to speak in the Great Hall of Bryn Mawr College's M. Carey Thomas Library yesterday afternoon, graduate student Amanda Adams complained of burning in her sinuses and a headache. They are symptoms she is familiar with, she said. And she also thinks she knows the cause: studying and working in the building. She is not the only one. Shortly after renovation work was begun on cavernous Great Hall in December, students and faculty and staff members say they have been bothered by various ills, from memory loss to respiratory problems.

Elephants were trampling through Steve Skowronski's head again. His friends didn't understand and his teachers didn't believe it could be that bad. But it was. Four years of pounding. He wished he were dead. He was 12. Allison Jernigan's head was being squeezed, not trampled. It felt like a cord wrapped tighter and tighter. Her eyelids ached, her forehead throbbed. She could not get out of bed. She was 12 and she thought she would never get better. It had to be a brain tumor.

The city has allowed ESPN to close a block of Market Street near Independence Mall for more than 48 hours to set up its roving weekly football College GameDay live telecast. ESPN chose Philadelphia because of the interest in undefeated Temple University's game Saturday night against Notre Dame. The sold-out event at Lincoln Financial Field is this weekend's prime-time college football game. Hosting the show offers great exposure for Philadelphia, Mayor Nutter's spokesman Mark McDonald said Thursday night, calling it "an excellent opportunity to market the city to a national audience.

I'm ready to toss my E-ZPass transponder in the trash - and that may be possible in the future. With one transponder shared among the Sturgis Family of Fine Automobiles, I've stumbled into a labyrinth of missed transponder readings, missed letters, and added fees. So I took my indignation to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, from whom I purchased the transponder a few years back, and stumbled upon a plan to make everyone's ride on the turnpike a little quicker, and some tips to avoid E-ZPass problems.

The Democratic National Committee ran smack into lingering labor strife this week during a visit to Philadelphia to plan July's presidential convention. DNC officials pulled up to the Convention Center late Wednesday afternoon in two purple Philadelphia Phlash buses to find a picket line of protesters from the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters. They came. They saw. They drove away. The DNC delegation decided against crossing the picket line. April Mellody, a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Convention, called the center "a unique resource that supports jobs for union workers including the electricians, laborers, riggers and stagehands and we look forward to future opportunities for visitors to see it. " Rep. Bob Brady, a lifetime member of the Carpenters Union and chairman of the city's Democratic Party, on Thursday said he asked the union to stand down the picket line.

When the federal government shut down the notorious gun shop owned by James G. Colosimo in 2009, neighbors and anti-gun-violence advocates celebrated the closing of a public nuisance that for years was frequented by "straw buyers" who purchased weapons for felons who couldn't legally own a firearm. However, a new version of the gun shop on Spring Garden Street may reopen unless residents in the West Poplar neighborhood can persuade the city Zoning Board of Adjustment to deny that use of the property.

When New Jersey's high court ruled last week that Gov. Christie had the authority to cut billions from payments he had promised the state pension system, it spared the governor a massive budget shortfall as he prepares to announce a presidential decision. Though the legal victory over public-worker unions averted immediate crisis, it did not relieve Christie - or state lawmakers - of a reality less worthy of campaign-trail celebration: an unfunded pension liability that continues to strain the state budget and funds for many workers at risk of running out of money within the next decade.

Q: We're newly married. My husband and I have a great sex life, but the last couple of times he complained afterward of having awful headaches. What's that about? Mia: Sex headaches aren't all that unusual. Typically, they happen after an orgasm, but they can also start in the pre-orgasmic phase. Sometimes they go away on their own. But instead of waiting for that, see a doctor to rule out a possibility of an aneurysm or hemorrhage. Meanwhile, your guy should relax a little more while you're getting busy - at least until you figure out what's what.

My patient was 20 - legally an adult - when I saw him for a lump in his right armpit he had noticed the day before. It didn't really hurt, but it was sometimes sore when he moved his arm. Other than that, he was fine. No fevers, weight loss, or night sweats. No lumps in his breast. No sores in his armpit, so it probably wasn't an inflamed lymph node. When I touched the lump, my heart sank. It had a worrisome rubbery texture, and even though it moved freely, it wasn't tender to touch.
