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'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.
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??
