Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum, I have no diagnosis of coeliac. My background is that I have been suffering with bad migraines and headaches for 40 years. I have been trying everything I can think of stop them. I went on gluten free diet in June this year and felt healthier but the headaches did not go away. I have now decided to cut out dairy - a week ago - and I am hoping this may be the key I have been searching for.
I have been feeling pretty lonely in this undertaking as many people seem to view me as strange for cutting out these foods. I got to the point where I simply want an end to the pain and I didn't care how restrictive the diet as long as I feel better in myself. I was stubborn in keeping to the diet even though I saw no great improvement in headaches. The reaction I have from family etc, to cutting out more foods, rather than giving up and "eating normally" has not been very supportive. Had I been advised to do so by my GP, I think I may have got more support.
I am hoping for some understanding and encouragement, and have been pleased to find this forum.
