Hi there. I have suffered cluster migraines since my teens. Sadly they have been getting worse and although sumatriptan can help alleviate the pain if I catch it early enough I often find myself crippled with intense pain, light, sound and smell sensitivity and persistent vomiting for up to 36 hours. I can have a migraine once every 3 days or go a month without.
I am currently investigating a link between fructan intolerance, thyroid autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's) and bipolar disorder - all of which I suffer from. When I eliminated fructan from my diet accidentally as part of the Atkins diet my health improved dramatically and I didn't have a migraine for a year. It is only now that I am seeing a link and members of ThyroidUK on health unlocked are saying this link is highly likely to be correct.
Can anyone shed any light on the link between food intolerance and migraine. I will have a good look around the forum here to see what others have posted but if anyone can advise me of even a causal link, especially if autoimmune disorders and mental health are involved I would be most interested.
