Headaches

Postby SarahC » Tue Dec 05, 2006 7:35 am

I have a great website for those of us who are headache/migraine sufferers... Headache Australia

They do heaps of research into the causes of headaches and migraines and provide advocacy and support for sufferers. They also accept donations and/or memberships.

Don't know about anyone else, but I find it very difficult to control what I eat when I have a headache. I think that the action of eating food is a distraction from the pain. Unfortunately the pain returns after I've finished eating :(

Anyway, hopefully there's some useful info on the site :wink:

Sarah I'm completely opposite. I suffer migraines on rare occasions but when I do they come with a vengeance. I have no energy to move, bright light hurts my eyes and any sudden movements causes unbelievable pain. So I can't eat, I guess that's a good thing :?

Thanks for the link will look into it and see what is recommended. Usually I just lie down and ride the pain until it's gone.

I used to suffer terribly from miagraines (needle in buttocks and 3 days in bed kind) at High School, many eons ago. Someone suggested getting my long thick straight hair cut off, so I did. Didn't help. Someone else suggested stop eating chocolate. It was hard but the day I did is the day they stopped. So for 7 yrs approx, no choc (not that it helped me with the weight). Now, I can eat white choc, hate dark and can eat samll amounts of milk choc. If I eat too much = bad headache, sometimes miagraine !
Hope this helps someone.

How interesting. I always heard about the chocolate/headache thing, but thought it was an old wives tale! That's great that you have found out your trigger :D

I always seem to crave chocolate when I have a headache LOL. And any other kind of comforting food as well. Of course I couldn't even think of eating or drinking if I had a migraine.... it would certainly come straight back up again!
