It's day 4 of my 15 day elimination diet and am feeling a bit yukky, no alot yukky.

I have just gotten over a cracker of a 48 hour headache that was bordering on the edge of becoming a migraine. I know when it's a migraine when I start to vomit, and I came close a few times. What made it worse was I came into work both days as my assistant is off sick for a couple of weeks. Today the headache is managable but I have the codiene hangover from popping the pain meds.

I don't know if the headache has anything to do with the diet or not but hopefully I'm over the worst of it. The food is OK to eat, I do miss the eggs and dairy though, so hopefully when I reintroduce these foods I wont have any reaction, though I'm skeptical on the dairy.

Still stressed out with events of my life at the moment, so sorry if I have been absent from your blogs but I do think of you all.

I think I will be getting a bad headache soon too... I'm going "No carbs", that should do it!

Is that type of reaction normal on an elimination diet? Is it a possibility that one of the few foods you have NOT eliminated is a migraine trigger/allergy for you?

I'm so sorry that you feel icky. :(

Oh hon, sorry you are feeling ill and stressed. I am wondering the same thing as the Veggie P.

Dairy is a tricky one. I think it gives a lot of people problems. Hopefully it's not the problem here.

Hang in there my friend. Hope you feel better soon. {{{Hugs}}}

Headaches can be withrawels from something.
After drinking 4 litres of coke a day, i gave it up cold turkey about 11 years ago. And boy did i suffer! I had terrible headaches and i was really irritable for a few weeks!
Are you keeping the water up? dehydration can cause headaches too.
I hope you feel better soon [HUG]
And don't feel bad about not visiting blogs, we all have lulls. You just worry about you :o)

Sorry about the headache but you've done well to stick with the diet through it.
Look on the bright side, only 11 days to go.

How are you doing, chick? I'm a bit concerned about you.
