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.

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.

DEAR ABBY: My problem is my mother-in-law and her abundant use of perfume. The last time she visited, it was so bad we had to open our windows to air out the rooms. (This was in January in Minnesota.) My husband addressed the problem with her when I was pregnant, but now that the baby is here, she's back to her old habits. We are all sensitive to perfumes and get headaches when exposed to it. When she visits, we can't get away from the smell. What's the proper etiquette here? - The Nose Knows DEAR NOSE: I receive complaints about perfumes almost daily.

Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger should have had a stirring retirement celebration before Thursday night's game against Pittsburgh, saluting a career that will undoubtedly put him into the Hall of Fame. Instead, the charade continued. Pronger attended the game at the Wells Fargo Center, sat in general manager Paul Holmgren's suite and, perhaps because he is in the process of making a comeback (wink, wink), wasn't even acknowledged on the scoreboard. Earlier Thursday, during a news conference at the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees, Pronger talked about trying to make a return from post-concussion syndrome.

IF BRAYDON Coburn had just a little more time to settle in when he was traded to the Flyers in February 2007, he might still be able to feel the area above his left eye and across the length of his skull to the back of his head. If Scott Hartnell had not spent 2 weeks in bed when he was 19 so his retina could cease bleeding and begin to repair, he might still be scrapping in front of opponents' nets without a visor covering his eyes. Both men play with visors these days, the result of eye injuries that threatened to end their respective careers before their 25th birthdays.

WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration is conducting a comprehensive review of the design, manufacture, and assembly of the Boeing 787, but government officials declared the plane safe despite recent incidents including a fire and fuel leak earlier this week. Michael Huerta, the FAA administrator, said at a news conference Friday that there was nothing in the data the agency had seen to suggest the plane wasn't safe, but that the agency wanted to figure out what was behind the safety-related incidents.

MAALIK WAYNS was back at his former basketball home on Villanova's campus on Wednesday, watching the team he still could be playing for losing to the Temple Owls. Wayns was sitting with his new 76ers teammate, Evan Turner, while teammate and former Owl Lavoy Allen took in the game from near the Temple bench. While he watched, you had to wonder if it crossed Wayns' mind whether he had made the right decision to forgo his senior season at 'Nova to try his luck in the NBA. When you're a rookie in the league, unless you are finding a tremendous amount of success from the get-go, questions are as plentiful as minutes riding the bench and observing.
