Craving junk food during migraines?

Hey all,

I generally eat healthy and don't crave junk food, but when I have a migraine all I care about is greasy pizza, Chinese, french fries et cetera... I don't know why, but I seem to really want processed carbs. If I as much as think about a healthy meal, I feel like I'm going to be sick. Don't know why, probably just my will-power is really weak when in great deal of pain? Or is anyone else like that?

I have been expanding my list of migraine triggers, as the ingredients of the foods that I eat are changing, or my awareness of them is expanding. Two cases in point, one is ground turkey which I have been eating for a long time as I am allergic to beef.
