  • Food causing migraines?

    Well not food...
    I have drunk nothing but water today and the migraine iv had for 3 days started going away. So I thought ild have a cordial this Arvo, I drank it and prob half an hr later my migraine came back... Could the cordial cause it?

    Hard to say. I know too much sugar usually gives me a headache.

        Perhaps the preservatives? Depends on how used to sugar/preservatives etc it is. If its the first time it's given you a migraine then I'd think probably not.

          Did it have artificial sweetener in it? Some people get headaches from that.

          I get migraines from compound chocolate (cooking chocolate).

          Hope you feel better soon

                  Have you still got the bottle, does any it have any of those ingredients from that list ? Some flavours are trade secrets though so they don't put the codes on the products.

                      Food causing migraines?

                      Hi

                      I'm a migraine sufferer and have narrowed down my trigger!

                      It is really weird and took me a long time to eliminate all possibilities!

                      My migraine is caused by red food coloring number 123! I can have red colour 122 and 124 and 120 but as soon as I have 123 massive migraine!

                      I have also recently discovered that chocolate gives me a migraine! Boohoo!!!!

                      As long as I avoid those things I don't get any migraines!

                      Good luck with finding the trigger and I hope the nasty things go away for you!

                      S

                        I can't drink orange juice or orange cordial.

                        Even just 1 glass will give me a slight headache so more than 1 glass would most certainly give me a pretty bad headache at the least.
