According to the American Migraine Foundation, about 36 million Americans suffer from migraines. To put that into perspective, this accounts for about 112 million bedridden days per year in the U.S. — just for migraine sufferers.

Sometimes a migraine can be prevented by avoiding common migraine triggers, but first you have to know what those triggers are. How well do you know what triggers a migraine? Take this quiz, and find out.
