AFter having over 30 years of migraines and much research of trigger foods, hormone issues, stress, and weather fronts I thought at least some times I could keep them under control. Not really, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis which brings a bunch of stuff to the gut area. Anyway, after much research on that part, the migraines seemed more erratic then ever. I am on the crohns colitis support group on daily strength and noticed people of all ages that never had migraines now are getting them after getting chrohns or colitis or both. Sometimes my gut and head were acting up. I seem more sensitive to some foods then ever after the colitis. It seems gluten keeps coming up. I love those nice fresh so called healthy whole grain breads for toast and sandwiches. But I repeatedly got gut trouble and migraines. I was using a brown rice gluten free bread. Whe I ran out last week pick up some regular wheat bread, Had some toast a few sandwiches. Felt that sick before real migraine hits feeling, the mood swings, irritability, anxiety,dizziness. light issues I think water retention etc/ There was nothing else unusual I ate last week. Found quite a few internet sites about gluten and migraines. Some people when they get off gluten really improve from migraines. I don't recall having a issue before the colitis, but I don't seem to digest the proteins in gluten. There's celiac and gluten sensitivity possible links to migraines. I am still learning.
