Headaches In Celiac Patients

I went to a chiropractor before (after trying all sorts of things) and he could get rid of the headaches. He called them liver headaches and would push near my liver and it would start gurgling and the headache would go away - it was a little more complicated than that. I haven't tried this since being gluten-free since they only last for a day and I would have to be worked in right away. I guess it makes sense if our bodies are being poisoned and the liver clears toxins from the body.

While it only cut my headaches back a little bit, I realized that my stomach felt great!
Gluten-free since July 8, 2006
Casein-free since October 16, 2006
Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.
Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006
Stupid cheese addiction....2/07
Dx Hypothyroid in 1993
Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06
Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07
Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

before going gluten free, i would get headaches EVERYDAY. it was some kind of hell...but now, i am o.k. as far as headaches go except for terrible sinus problems. but, to help with it you may want to consider taking calcium and/or magnesium. i also had to detox my liver with silymarin. your liver can get toxic from so much time of bad digestion and detoxing it will help a lot. i am willing to bet that gluten free living will help you, but additional treatments can really help repair the damage giving you the problems. a good nutritional balancer or holistic doctor might be able to help you even more to figure out what areas you specifically may need to address.

My migraines started about 15 years ago. I used to get about 3 or 4 attacks a year of those plus the daily headaches.

I'm going on 6 weeks gluten free and am still having migraines. Last spring when I went off gluten the first time, my migraines were awful in the first two weeks but by about 8 weeks I started feeling better. I did go back on gluten over the summer for the blood work which came back positive. I'm hopeful that my migraines are caused by gluten, I'd give up just about anything to make them go away.

I suffer from Migraines as well and take Imitrex injections which work most of the time, if the migraine is really bad it might not work. About two weeks ago I went to the doctor because when I get migraines I vomit, and i always thought it was drainage from sinus problems. I had sinus surgery which cleared most of my sinus issues. And I still vomit with a headache, I had the thought that my vomitting was not drainage but bile. My doctor agreed. Now...if your liver cleanses toxins from your body, this makes even more sense.
My doctor said that it was normal for migraines to vomit bile, I thought it maybe normal for migraines but its not normal for humans. There has to be something causing it.

When I went gluten-free, those headaches went away. I've only had a couple since, and it's been almost a year and a half. I don't know exactly what they were, but I'm so glad they're gone!

I too hoped they would go away with the gluten-free diet, but it has been over a year, and I still get them, sorry to tell you. I suspect it may be a separate autoimmune problem - I also get reynauds - so my blood vessels seem to overreact to stimuli.
Dx with IBS 5 years ago
Dx with Celiac and gluten-free since 6/17/05
