Hi has anyone had any long term luck with this diet and migraines? Im a chronic migraine sufferer post viral meningitis. I started the proper strict standard ketogenic diet two and a half weeks ago. Was having a decent dose of daily migraines about two to three weeks straight prior to the diet. A week into the diet, so thats 10 days ago...the migraines stopped. Thats TEN WHOLE DAYS with nothing!!!Oh my god. There is a doctor who has written a book about it and a number of scientific studies in the field yielding good results.
I don't get ten whole days in a row very often. If I get too overtired, if I dont sleep enough, if I work too hard, if I sleep in, if I eat too much sugary food and chocolate, if I have some unusual event.....I will get a migraine. Sometimes I will get one for no reason. And now this....... an excellent result so far. If this means I will never eat more than 20 mg of carbohydrate a day for the rest of my life.......then I am fine with that. There is nothing I wont do to try and live without the migraines. Anyone else know of any other results? This is a super strict diet with high protein and low carb but lots of greens. You can have coffee. Which is good. Or I might have had to kill someone. Anyway, anyone else know anything? I m hoping its not a fluke. But...usually by this time, ten days before the next botox shot, I am hanging for the shots. But not this time.
