Low-FODMAP Diet for Migraine

Hello - Has anyone tried a low FODMAP Diet for your migraines? I am 48, in Menopause, and my migraines have gotten much worse over the past 18 months with my hormonal shifts. Any suggestions are welcome in terms of diet, medications, etc. Thank you

  1. Hello Marje, thank you for reaching out! I hear how much you have been struggling with your migraine symptoms during the perimenopausal state. You are not alone experiencing an uptick in your symptoms during this time! I thought these articles might resonate with you:

    As far as the FODMAP Diet is concerned, there is a discussion on the forum about this topic you might be interested in perusing, though I do not know if any of the commenters have also been going through perimenopause:
