Foods that cause headaches

My doctor suggested that I see if any food types trigger my headaches. I've discovered over the last few weeks that dairy products make my headaches worse. Straight away I noticed cheese and cut this out about 3 weeks. It was only last weekend when I had cereal that a got a really bad headache I thought of milk and had it the next day and the same thing. I changed to Soya milk since Tuesday and no headaches. Soya milk will take a bit of getting used to!!!. I also cut out sugar awhile back.

So that's sugar & dairy for me so far

Does anyone else find that food types trigger headaches??

Like you it's Dairy which I found out a few years ago, and I had a test which showed that I was intolerant to dairy and maize. Once I cut them down I noticed the difference straight away.

They're also linking Vitamin A to IIH..toxicity brings on headaches and they're finding a lot of IIH sufferers have high levels of Vitamin A. Still don't know why, but it would be interesting to try.

I haven't noticed any specific foods that do it ... but for me I do know if I'm eating a lot of high gycemic carb type stuff without enough proteins to balance it out, I will get crashes from that which can trigger headaches. Not sure if that just made any sense or not! :P

My doctor has told me to cut back on caffeine intake as it will increase headaches. The soft drinks where easy as the Diamox makes them taste awful but cutting back on coffee is really hard.lol2

I have done my best to completely cut caffeine out. I've never done so well with dairy, unless it is cooked. I know this may sound strange but I've always gotten killer indigestion from any dairy unless it is cooked in a food. Cheese and yogurt in small doses doesn't ever seem to bother me but I don't eat much of them just because they are a dairy. I LOVE almond milk and have drank it for years. I try to stay away from using sugar in anything except baking or cooking. I don't bake a lot but I do try to always substitute with Stevia as often as possible. I drink a ton of water and am always thirsty. I feel the same as BananasMom, there has to be a balance. I do go through phases that I crave carbs like a madman (madwoman??;)) but I've always been like that. Who doesn't love a big ole bowl of mac n cheese sometimes hahaha!
Take care y'all!
