I haven't had an occular migraine in months (knock on wood.) For a while, I was getting a couple a week and saw a couple doctors. For me, I believe I traced it back to a folate / b12 issue.

My diet has evolved to Paleo, thank goodness! I get migraines within 30-40 mins after my kettlebell workout but not after every workout. Has anyone had that problem and has paleo helped?

I used to get migraines from ANY kind of stress. Sleep deprivation seems to be the worse stressor. But you add on to that other things, that doesn't help. NO ONE ever gets stronger by exercising. Sorry to shock you. People get stronger by... (more)

Yesterday I developed a killer headache. I haven't had one in months. The only thing that was unusual was that I made a pie (nectarine-blueberry if you must know) for my family. Did not eat any of it, but did have a little of the gelato that I... (more)

It is not always easy to determine the cause. Reaction to food additives/preservatives may take up to 1 or 2 days. Also a combination of stressors can trigger a migraine or cluster headache. Nitrites and other food preservatives and flavour... (more)

Just started visiting and saw an old thread about the diet and migraines. Wondering how some people have done with low carb diets and their migraines. I'm currently on Topamax and not doing well even at 100mg. Leg cramps and paresthesia have seem... (more)

I have very chronic severe migraines that were misdiagnosed as anything from schizophrenia to epilepsy. The neurologist put me on blood pressure medications which greatly relieved my issues. But I have found on paleo that some days I only end up... (more)

I started Paleo seven months ago in part to reduce or eliminate my frequent headaches. Unfortunately, what I'm doing so far has not had the results I was looking for. So eliminating grains and presumably reducing inflammation has not been... (more)
