I am on day 19 of my current migraine. It varies in pain from a 4-10 in intensity at any given time. I've been to see my doctor and also had one trip to the emergency room. I am at my wit's end and trying anything and everything to ease my pain.
Approximately three weeks ago I decided to try and eat healthier and gave up dairy and Diet Coke. Cold turkey, both of them. It occurred to me that I was having DC withdrawals last week so I reintroduced it in small doses. Yet, my head is still killing me.
After another agonizing day, I asked my husband if he thought I was having withdrawal from the dairy. So we started researching. I've found some compelling information supporting that I could be going through dairy withdrawal. I am posting this here to see if anyone else has experienced this or heard of it? I actually feel like I may have found the answer.
I'm sending my husband out to buy me some milk and I will report back. I pray that this is my answer because I'm almost out of the hydrocodone the hospital gave me and two more weeks before I can get in to see a neurologist.
