Diet soda contain aspertane which is causes headaches. I also read coffee has a rebound effect on headaches. Lack of sleep also causes headaches for me as well. The book Migraine Brain speaks about a consistent sleep schedule for headaches which is not always easy to do.


I am thinking of being coming to a Vegan, im practically on a diet now.


I did that it did not cure my headaches. I did get rid of dairy and gluten because they are inflammatory foods but most of my problem was triptan overuse.


Good old triptan overuse - can't live with them, can't live without them! I had 16 last month, 16 the month before and 22 the month before that. It's a constant battle not to take one. The trouble is they're so damn good- they're the only thing that actually works. And believe me I've tried everything!!


i use Eletriptan


Never heard of it. Tell me more!!
