Hi,

Gluten free for 4 months and dairy free. I had a lot of problems that disappeared with saying bye to gluten, but not the daily migraines. Does it take longer for some symptoms to leave than others?

THANK YOU!!!

I am new so I am not sure on that but I do know that migraines can be caused by many other things. Chocolate, alcohol, especially red wine, too much acid, tomato, juices and tea. Caffeine is a big migraine trigger for some and cheese and nuts and severe weather changes, lots of things. Many years ago I had migraines daily and just kept taking pills and after a while they didn't work so good so took more and more. What happens is what is called a rebound migraine. The pills can actually keep the migraine going. Switching two different types of pain killers will stop that rebound. I ended up in emergency.

Chemicals and preservatives cause migraines for some people and some strong odors. I can't even smell peppermint without getting a migraine.

Don't know if that helps but I sure do sympathize. :ph34r:

My son-in-law gets terrible migraines and we suspect it's MSG related.

When you remove gluten from your system, sometimes you can hear other intolerant voices.

I had the same thought as Sora. There are a lot of migraine trigger foods we still eat gluten-free.

I join the other posters, check for other food intolerances and allergies. I get incredible migraines from rice.

I had migraines too.

Gluten is the worst.

Then Salicylates.

Then MSG...ugh.

Then fish. Yeah, the day after eating it I get a big bad headache.

Now I'm free of migraines except sometimes the menstrual migraine.

Incidentally I've read that those can actually get worse after Celiac is diagnosed and healing starts to take place. It has to do with the hormones.

I agree with everyone else. Foods could be triggering your migraines.

But be careful because daily migraines can indicate other conditions too. Like aneurysm, kidney problems, brain tumor. Not to be scary here, but sometimes we think it's food and it's really a medical condition that needs to be addressed. Tell your Dr. because daily migraines can be dangerous.

And migraines can be triggered by non-food things as well. Barometric pressure and poor cervical alignment are two for me. I couldn't shake mine until I had spent some time with my chiropractor.

My migraines were triggered by nightshades. Mainly potatoes.

I forgot the cervical alignment, that's one of mine too. Actually got a migraine last night from shoveling snow.

Chiro's are great for those.

You've been given a good list of migraine triggers, but thought I'd add...you may need a folic acid supplement if you're not getting enough in your diet/or aren't absorbing it well? A deficiency has been linked to migraines, and since you are getting them daily it would suggest it's something you're lacking, rather than something you're ingesting every day.
