So I used to get migraines every month which I attributed to a relation with PMS. Got migraine, within hours I would start my period without fail. Since having the contraceptive implant put in my arm and my periods are irregular I no longer get monthly migraines. I don’t get them the same time as my period at all now.
Now, I seem to get them as a reaction to alcohol. I could have only one or two glasses of wine and have a migraine and be violently sick the next day. Now it’s got worse, I can’t have one drink without being very ill. On my 30th birthday I had ONE cocktail, a small one. It was delicious but my god the headache started within an hour, I went home knowing full well what I was in for the next day. Sure enough, I woke up, migraine, sick…great way to spend your birthday!
So I’m really upset because even though I don’t drink much anyway (one a month if that), I would like to be able to have that rare drink without any consequences! I don’t drink excessively and haven’t done since I was a teenager.
Anyone get migraines like these? Are there any alcohols they find ok to drink? Maybe a certain cider, Spirit, wine? Organic help at all? I don’t like beer anyway so no point drinking alcohol free beer. I can’t find an alcohol free cider that isn’t fruit flavoured.And I don’t know how good they are either.
I’m too scared to drink anything at the moment! One drink puts me out for the entire next day.
