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.

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.

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.

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 man felt foolish sitting in the waiting room of the Travel Medicine clinic. He didn't understand why his wife had insisted that he go see the doctor. After all, he was starting to feel better, and didn't she realize that he was already overworked at the office, trying to sift through the jumble of unattended cases that had piled up during their two-week jaunt to the Caribbean? He already felt as if it had been months since he had swum in the Atlantic Ocean, tried parasailing, and hiked around beautiful hills and waterfalls.

There's a pristine spot on the Delaware River in West Deptford where residents flock to golf, exercise, and have dinner. Some go simply to watch the sun set as airplanes soar into the sky across the water. Few towns can boast tracts such as RiverWinds in Gloucester County. Town officials at the turn of the century embarked on the redevelopment of more than 1,100 acres that would make it all possible - a community center, restaurant, senior housing, and a golf course with a sweeping view of Philadelphia.

THE NUMBER, if accurate, is staggering. So far, there have been 66 concussions in 49 NFL preseason games. That, according to @NFLconcussions, the Twitter feed that tracks such things. Former NFL player Dave Pear isn't surprised. "It's probably way more than that," he told the Daily News yesterday. "In the preseason, guys want to make teams, so they aren't going to say they're hurt. " It's not the concussions that worry Pear. It's what happens afterward. Pear, who played a combined six seasons (1975-80)

When Maurice Kanbar got headaches from drinking alcohol, he came up with a solution: Skyy Vodka, regular vodka minus the impurities that he said gave him headaches. He also invented the "D-Fuzz-It" sweater comb and a hypodermic needle protector to prevent health-care workers from getting pricked. But the wealthy San Francisco entrepreneur has another claim to fame: He's the godfather of Philadelphia University. He is the biggest donor in the university's history. He gave his alma mater a whopping $21 million during its current capital campaign - more than half the amount the university was aiming to raise.

When new construction work started Wednesday night on I-95, it added one more obstacle to smooth travel in the Philadelphia region. The $212 million project between Girard and Allegheny Avenues will last until 2018, adding to the woes of I-95 travelers already slowed by major reconstruction at Cottman Avenue. Add a possible strike that could shut down all 13 SEPTA Regional Rail lines at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, the emergency closure until at least Labor Day of an I-495 bridge in Wilmington, summerlong lane restrictions, and a closed PATCO train track on the Ben Franklin Bridge, and you have the makings of regional gridlock.

Motorists in the Philadelphia region face weeks of traffic headaches following the emergency closure of a bridge on I-495 in Delaware. Delaware transportation officials said the bridge over the Christina River in Wilmington will likely be closed for weeks while crews attempt to find and repair a defect that has caused four of its support columns to tilt. Engineers said Tuesday that subsurface ground movement under the columns appears to be at fault. The bridge carries an average of 90,000 vehicles a day, and the closure of the bridge Monday evening caused traffic snarls up and down the I-95 corridor as traffic was diverted to I-95 and local streets.

Hannah Thomas, 17, can't pinpoint the day she realized that she would never play soccer again, or when the teenage highs of proms and college acceptances became weighed down by meds, therapy, and running battles with depression, memory loss, and headaches. "I didn't think it was going to be this long, and I sure didn't think it would be this serious," said Thomas, tall and athletic, who got hit in the head with a ball in middle school but finished the season - even though she had daily headaches and nausea.

LeSean McCoy said his play in Sunday's loss to Dallas was his worst since his rookie year, but his low point statistically came this season in Week 5 against the New York Giants. Even though the Eagles won, McCoy was limited to 46 yards on 20 carries. He did not gain a yard in the second half. Part of the reason was the absence of Michael Vick, which contributed to the ineffectiveness of the Eagles' zone-running plays. The Giants also used a big, aggressive defensive line on stunts to clog any holes for McCoy.

It was wintertime, and this new grandmother had packed up and left her home in western Pennsylvania coal country to be with her daughter in Philadelphia. Her daughter had recently had her first child and sorely needed an extra pair of hands. The Philadelphia apartment was a typical 19th-century, Center City townhouse in need of repair. It was also small, and the new grandmother found herself sleeping on an old mattress recently brought up from the the apartment's basement. After a couple of weeks in the city, Ms. S., who had always been in great health, started to feel lousy.
