I’m kicking myself...
I’ve always been a chocoholic, so in my 30’s (pre RA), I munched away merrily on chocolate, I suffered awful headaches really, really bad ones and they’d last for days, weeks even. I also had hay fever, so put these headaches down to allergic rhinitis. Took antihistamine and paracetamol.
For the past 8-10 years I’ve been trying to keep off sugar. The headaches continued, but I was taking hydroxychloroquine and then Mtx, both of these give me headaches and still I thought that hay fever was contributing.
In the past year I’ve been allowing myself occasional chocolate treats, only small ones and only on shopping days. A pattern emerged... the day after chocolate, I feel so ill, full on migraine hits and the day is wiped out.
It’s really dumb that at 63 - I’ve finally found the source of my migraines!
If I don’t eat chocolate, I rarely get a headache and never a migraine.
Guess I’m a recovering chocoholic 😂😂😂
Go gently through what is a wonderful day, blue skies and birdsong (hope it’s as lovely where you are)
