    Hey,

    I have a really bad headache which is preventing me from sleeping. Now I have a strong craving for chocolate and bagels :S Bizarre, I know...

    What can I do to stop this craving? I've had 14.5 syns already today :(

    I find sugar always helps with a headache ( im prone to migraines ) - pre SW i would eat jelly sweets and it usually helped.
    So now i guess sweetner is the ticket instead - maybe strawberries dipped in splenda?

    Hope your feeling better soon x

    It could certainly be dehydration.

    Lack of water can cause headaches, and can also cause cravings for sugary, fatty foods, which chocolate and white bread certainly are.

    Load up with lots and lots of lovely cool water ;)

    I'm doing a water challenge and I drank over 2 litres of fluid yesterday, so I don't think it was dehydration...it was a weird horrible headache on the hairline and it was sort of throbbing.

    I didn't sleep very well last night, but the headache has gone luckily.

    I didn't go over my syns luckily, just stayed in bed :)

    Thanks guys!

    Lol! It serves me right, I can't really treat myself earlier in the day otherwise I'll use most if not all of my syns, so I usually wait until evening, and then I only end up using 5 or so, but yesterday, my little brother opens up a pack of mikado and I could resist. It went downhill from there, and 14.5 syns were gone...

    Today, I'll learn from my mistakes, no syns for treats until 6pm!
