Hello All...in case you havent seen other threads of mine, I am new here. My name is Kristen but you may call me Kris if you like. I have quite a few medical issues going on. I am to the point where they are all linked together and proper treatment will resolve my symptoms, but finding that is the key. And I am aware what may work for you may not for me.

I have had daily headaches since 2009. They sorta resolved with a gluten free diet. In 2010 I still had headaches and I got a migraine that lasted 3 months. I was in the community hospital for 3 weeks at one point, and then another point in Mass General for a week. I had 7 MRI's in that time period, some CT scans and other testing...nothing medical was found.

Still today I have daily headaches...and I get Migraines at least once a week if not more frequently. I feel like I'm living on imitrex. I try not to take any pain relievers because I do not want the rebound effect. Also because of my Asthma I cannot take Motrin or Aspirin as it causes wheezing. The headaches are interfering with my daily activities. I dont know if you guys have some suggestions. All would be greatly appreciated and considered.

I also am Tyoe 1.5 diabetic (insulin dependent) and have IBS, gastroparesis, gluten sensitivity, and other food issues that may interfere with a "headache" diet.

Thank you so much for your time and effort.
Kris

I should have added I am on trileptal 600 mg twice a day for the migraines and also a mood stabilizer.
