Gluten, Dairy and Migraines
Last updated: June 2023
I really don't know how long I've suffered migraine because I have been treated as having sinusitis since I was young. I'm 67 now. I was taking antibiotics, nasal sprays and more antibiotics over the years. After going to allergists, two ENTs, neurologist, having CT-Scan of the face, MRI, MRA, I was diagnosed with migraine. I don't have sinus problems, I have migraine due to allergies. My neurologist told me to play detective to find out my triggers. I found out that my triggers are MSG, soy sauce, skipping meals, spicy food, stress, red wine, lack of sleep. I was still getting the headaches, by this time I was on medication for migraine. I wanted to find my other triggers and stop the medication. I went to see a holistic doctor who told me to go on a gluten and dairy free diet. I haven't had a headache in the last two weeks. I know is a short period of time but I used to have either a headache or foggy head every day. I feel normal again.
How many medications do you take to manage your chronic migraines?
