what would cause me to get headaches from not eating every 3 to 4 hrs other than needing food and is there a way to correct it. I get pretty bad headaches if I do not eat every 3 to 4 hrs. This has started happening about 4 months ago. I do try to exercise regularily. I wake up every mornin gwith a headache from wha tI assume is from not eating all night long. Is there a way to correct this wthout having to get up in the middle of the night for a snack?

Are you seeing a dr for your headaches? Low blood sugar can cause them. I eat just before I go to bed and right when I wake up.

I have seen many Dr's over the years for this and noone has been able to pin in down to anything other than stress headaches but I get those in the back of my head. The new headaches are between my eyes. I've done shots, pills, massage, chiroprator but I still get them. Everytime I go to the Dr, even after fasting for a cholesterol test, my blood sugar is fine. Any suggestions

What kind of doctor have you seen? Your regular internist, a neurologist, or a headache specialist? You may try having your regular doctor have a full blood panel done before you turn to a specialist to see if you are deficient in anything that might be causing the problem. Low blood sugar is not the only thing that can cause a headache. Also look at your thyroid to see how that is functioning.
