    I am a victim of frequent and excessive headache from childhood, and it totally depends on my eating habits, its like if I have have something oily/ fatty/ spicy at night before going to bed i will getup with severe headache next day which is nearly impossible to cure, no medication helps.

    I have seen docs and as prescribed taken Omez / Pantocid also but they were also temporary help.

    My headache makes me feel dizzy as its so excessive sometimes that i cannot concentrate on any work, previously running use to help sedate it but now am doing exersise and running regularly but still no help.

    can somebody suggest me: Tests related to Liver/ intestine which can get me to the roots of the problem/deficiency?

    Hi gauravagarwals,

    I found this article that lists a number of foods that have been associated with triggering migraines. You might try avoiding them and then slowly adding them back in to your diet to see if they are the culprit. Keeping a food diary of what you eat and whether or not it triggers a headache might be helpful. One of the symptoms of a headache triggered by food additives listed in this article is dizziness, which you list as one of your symptoms.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello Gaurav,

    I have exactly the same problem as you described. I am also suffering from headaches since childhood.
    I was wondering if you could find a solution for it. If something did work for you, please share.

    Thanks.

    I have had the same problem since childhood. My problems come from eating cooked foods or vegetables that have either a tomato based sauce or which have cooked onions added. Fat may also be a contributing factor.

    Over the counter medications do not work for this type of headache. I get sinus headaches also and this headache feels more like a migraine. My father used to make me take a cup of warm water with a tablespoon of baking soda added. Stir it well and drink it very fast. It usually works rather quickly if not instantly. Hopefully this can help you as well as it has helped me over the years.
