Ya gotta understand that many folks that come here are not for real.
I was treated basically the same way when I arrived in the Fall of '99.
Now, only a couple ignore me...lol!

As for the food stuff...
I too had a book back in the early 80s that listed foods to avoid. Among them were aged cheeses and smoked/processed meats as well as those you mentioned. During a cycle(2-3mths) I lived on American cheese, egg noodles and saltines. The biggest killer for me was my favorite SauerKraut! Alcohol is the worst. I got used to drinking coffee to break an attack at the start.
Now I take Verapamil everyday and have O2 just in case. The oxygen really works if ya get to it at the onset.
For years I took no pain killers because I had taken enough in the first 13 yrs of my attacks.
Now I use Imitrex injections when I am not able to control the demon.
Find what works for you and learn that not everything works for everybody.
