Triggers and Causes

Lactose Intolerance?

  • By Ronan

    I skipped dairy for two weeks with hardly any sign of migraine. I bought cream for my coffee today and I am starting to get a migraine. I didn’t think dairy was a trigger for me. Does anyone else in the community have the same trigger? I’m feeling a bit bummed out about it because I LOVE dairy.

    HI Ronan,

    Good to hear you’ve seen a decrease in migraine frequency. But, UGH!! I love dairy too. I am slowly switching milk to almond milk, which I like! I’ve for the most part cut out gluten, but haven’t even thought about dairy. Not do I want too!!

    Keep us posted!

    I just read an article about almond milk and all the sweeteners in it. Be careful.

    What worked for my husband was eliminating dairy and sulfites. No more migraines, and no more seasonal allergies as a bonus!
