Until today's health segment on the DW news about headaches, I had never heard that a common (at least in Germany, I suppose) cause of headaches is eating certain cheeses. They mention it up with stress and weather changes as among the top causes.
Does this ring a bell with you?
I did a quick search and sure enough there's a culprit called tyramine that is found in, quote
"aged and fermented foods, such as:
Some types of beer"
Golly, this sounds like the German menu, no?
Is this a German thing that DW is generalizing out to everyone, or are there other countries where people commonly think that a cheese is giving them a headache?
