I've dealt with headaches most of my life. I've been through every test in the book. No medical issues. I suffer from migraines as well, but only get one about every 6 months (thank God). I'm chronically tired, suffer from anxiety and depression, and generally feel...like complete crap.
 
I just started a strict no gluten, dairy or soy diet. Yes, I need to lose some weight, but that isn't my goal. Feeling better is my priority. I've tested negative for Celiac Disease. Many years ago, I had an allergy test (scratch kind) and showed reactions to wheat and corn. I ignored it and continued to eat whatever I wanted.
 
I don't really know what my question is...I guess if there are others out there that have spent the majority of their lives feeling awful; what did you do to change it? Did diet help? Maybe I'm just looking for support.
 
Thanks for reading.

I know what it's like to have chronic illness - exhaustion, pain, brain fog, headaches, anxiety, borderline depression, migraines, food intolerances (including gluten, lactose, fructose, fructans, galactans, soy) and much more. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. It sounds to me like you could have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Check out the forum for that on this website and see if that holds any answers for you.
