Headaches After Being Gluen Free
0

4 posts in this topic

So there's lots on here about people associating headaches with eating gluten, but I have the opposite problem.

I've been gluten-free almost 2 months now, and I haven't had headaches this frequent since I was a kid. (I'd get them all the time as a kid, especially in summer.) I thought that maybe it was bananas, because I swear I've had headaches caused by bananas before, and I started eating more of them in smoothies recently. (Gotta fill the toast and cereal breakfast void with something!) But I haven't had banana in quite a few days now.

I've had decaf a couple days in a row from Second Cup, I suppose there's likely residual caffeine in the decaf if they don't clean their canisters well or interchange them, but definitely not withdrawal from regular caffinated drinks, I only had a cup of tea a week ago.

Just asking if anyone else has had a lot of headaches when they started going gluten-free.

Yes, but usually it is because I ate something with "hidden" gluten. Since you are so new to the diet, there is a good chance that you are getting hit with tiny bits of gluten from your food, pans, or other form of cross contamination.

I found I was getting headaches more frequently too. I keep a log of everything I eat, along with any symptoms, which helped me learn that dairy, soy, and MSG(autolized yeast extract) was getting me.

I highly recommend a food log. Many of us react badly to things until we heal.
