Been suffering from migraines since age 7 (now 22), but they are normally decently controlled (around 1 attack every month).
I started dieting at the end of August, and since I have had 5 migraines in 5 weeks. I manage them well acutely, but they just keep coming.
Does anyone have any experience of dieting/calorie restricting and it causing migraine attacks? I am booked in to see my neurologist in a month’s time and have been using migraine buddy to track triggers/attacks, but wanted to know if anyone else noticed a link between dieting and migraines before I see him.
For insight I eat between 1200 and 1300 calories daily currently as part of my diet (all whole foods). I have lost 1 stone over 6 weeks. I am not taking any preventives currently as I am waiting to see the neurologist.
Any help would be massively appreciated.
