      One of my friends gave up gluten as she gets extremely achy and stiff from eating it, so you're not alone.
      Side vent - always think with your own head about anything you ingest!

      I had 10 years of migraines before I went gluten-free. Only Zomig (zolmitriptan) worked - it is specific for that nerve. Ask your doctor for a prescription and take it next time you have a gluten accident and feel a migraine starting.

      I had 10 years of skull splitting migraines before I went gluten-free. It took a few months, but is well worth it. Before that I took Zomig (zolmitriptan), which was a life-saver. Nothing else helped - not even narcotics touched the pain. I still keep some available for gluten accidents.

      I think going gluten-free may be (unfortunately) reversing my menopause just as I thought I was finishing that little project. Where do I get more medical information on this??

      I've had nausea, vomiting, sweats, chill, and dizziness as migraine aura before. I usually have no warning at all. It's only happened a couple of times, but it was so intense, I called into work and presumed it was stomach flu until the headache started.

    6. katie-sbb added a post in a topic Menopause And Celiac   

      I am 52 and am probably well into menopause. Perimanopause began in my very late 30's. I've been gluten-free for around 2 years now, and it has taken away the terrible migraines. At first they just accompanied my periods, then they became more frequent, Then I went gluten-free and they stopped. Now, all of a sudden I'm starting to get periods and migraines again!! Has anyone else had this experience??

      IgG antibodies do cross the placenta.
      You are producing IgG at least for gliadin
      The fetus will carry at least one of your HLA allelles
      HLA seems involved in this cross reaction
      Science has only poorly defined the antibodies being produced
      There is a strong association with miscarriages

      Why not play it safe and go gluten free through pregnancy and breast feeding?
