Migrane Headaches And Celiacs

8 posts in this topic

I have had migranes for a while now and have gotton to the point that i am having 20 plus a month. I have been getting IV magnesium and ending up in the ER for IV meds. I was diagnosed on Friday with Celiacs disease. I was wondering if anyone has had migranes before they were diagnosed and did it get better after taking Gluten out of your diet. Thanks for the input.

I didn't have as many as you, but my are almost completely gone. They can be a hormonal thing, too.

Yes, I used to suffer terribly from migraines on almost a daily basis; however, after going gluten free, I never had another one. Yay!

Yes! I had migraines about half of the time and now they happen only a day or two a month! Yay!

My migraines did get worse before they got better though; I went through a withdrawl for a week or two and that migraine was a doozey... but it was also my last multi day one that I've had in 6+months. :)

I hope you find relief.

Many migraines here. Much better after gluten free. Now when I do get a migraine, I can trace it to some hidden gluten.

Have you checked all your meds for gluten? Maybe other sources?

Migraines here too. I ate something gluteny at a party last week and along with the digestive issues came the migraines. I am on day 3 of them. It's pretty common. Hopefully yours get better on the gluten free diet too.

I also had chronic migraines and was on preventative meds for them. Gluten free didn't make much difference (they came on after I had been gluten and dairy free for a long time). For me, I needed to work with a chiropractor to resolve posture/alignment issues.

Migraines too! Gone from losing several days a month in bed to maybe an afternoon around my period. Unless I get glutened, then hey presto, kicks in second day.

All sounds like good news on this front.

Remember you need to be eating gluten until all blood tests and biopsies are done.

Good luck, ask lots of questions as you get to grips with the diagnosis and diet.

    • Sounds like she's not into the whole thyroid idea, but is willing to check the t4. She also wants to check for other autoimmune diseases as she said some of my symptoms could match up with other issues. So I'm eagerly awaiting the blood draw.
    • Thank you so much for the reassurance! That makes me feel a lot better and ease some of the anxiety going through this lifestyle change.  It is so amazing to me how much our bodies are impacted by things they don't respond well too.  Luckily I haven't discovered much of the gluten free replacements yet. I'll definitely avoid those through this beginning phase until I start feeling better especially when I feel like I can eat all day long!  The list of foods with the low GI rating was super helpful also! Thank you for taking the time to offer some advice. I need all the pointers I can get at this point! 
    • In the doctors office right now, just had the vitals taken.... and hoping my doc of the day is sympathetic to symptoms.
    • Wow, I can just see you in that doctors office and the look on their face.  I have never had a monte cristo sandwich sadly, but I sure want one now. thank you for sharing your great story!
    • Yes! I'm one of the first people to import bag balm to the uk and can attest to its wonderful moisturising power. I use it often and haven't detected any side effects at all. In fact, moost of the time I forget it's on. Moore and Moore people are using it over here and moo moo mooo the moo of moo. When moo the mooo moo. Moo moo juicy grass, moo moo moo moo, can't stop chewing, moo moo, keeps my new tail moist,  moo moo, moo...
