My question is for the doctors here - I'm a 49 year-old woman with Celiac having been diagnosed on September 1st and have been absolutely gluten-free since then. I still was sick and the people here were kind enough to advise me to also avoid dairy (which helps a lot). I've been on Synthroid for 16 years and have been treated for migraines and chronic (daily) tension headaches for about ten years. Why don't over-the-counter meds work on my headaches? My doctors have begun to look at me like I'm a junkie or something; when they refuse to refill the Butalbital (generic Fiorecet) for awhile, I just do without it and live with a half-headache constantly. Am I alone? Am I nuts? Many Celiac patients here have mentioned headaches and migraines; what's the connection? What's the answer to the pain relief problem? Or am I asking for too much?
Any advice you could give me would be most appreciated.
