Hi, I wonder if someone can help? I've been having headaches that feel like pressure behind the right eye, and side of head. The pain gets worse when I lean my head to the left, or bend forward. I also have pain radiating down my neck and shoulder. My eyes also feel heavy and tired constantly. I am in good Heath otherwise. To get an appointment at my doctors surgery is a bit of a nightmare whilst working shifts so don't want to go unnecessarily.

Hi I suffered from headaches and dizziness all my life. 5 years ago I discovered that I was Salicylate Intolerant, allergic to aspirin and all foods containing salicylates. Aspirin is a salicylate that comes form the bark of the willow tree. All plants produce salicylates as a natural insecticide. It is in things likes fruit,most vegetables, tomato sauce, olive oil and many more. Theres a good list of foods in the book,"Salicylate Intolerance and The Healthier I Ate the Sicker I Got."

Right before I hit bottom I had such a pain in my right eye that I went for a CAT scan to rule out a tumor. Once I went on a low sal diet I got rid of my headaches,sizziness, nausea, neck pain, arthritis, asthma, dry eyes, nosebleeds, swollen glands and a foggy headed feeling.

No one should just accept a diagnosis of Migraine Headaches or Fibromyalgia when they can prevent them by finding out whats causing them. Its usually a food intolerance. Unfortunately there is no test for Salicylate Intolerance because it isnt an allergy. You have to go off the foods that are high and very high in sals and see how you feel. Good luck, Joan
