    Muggy weather can definitely cause headaches. So can changing what you eat, particularly if you have change you pattern of sugar or caffeine intake or if you're not drinking enough water.

    I get bad headaches if I don't drink enough water. Plus this muggy weather doesn't help!

    Eat better, eat less!
    I started to have bad headaches and shakes a week or so after cutting down on sugar and carbohydrates. I found changing the balance of what I ate cured it, i.e. I added some sugar and carbs (not much) back to my diet. The headaches and shakiness were affecting my driving quite badly at the time so I started keeping a packet of toffees in the car. That wasn't very healthy but you could try eating something containing natural fruit sugars e.g. raisins or dates instead.

    i also get horrible headaches if I don't drink enough water! When first restarting WW I drunk a bit too much water (over eager) and this gave me a headache as well!

    Any sudden reduction in carbohydrate will give you a headache, you can almost guarantee it, but think of it as a carb detox. Took me 2 weeks to get over my headaches, but as the others say, drink plenty of water, it really does help

    any sort of change can bring on headaches - diet, exercise, work etc but they should go themselves if not see your doctor and explain any causes to them see what they say but yeah low carbs brings headaches:(

    I'm a biiiiggggg sufferer of migranes and I alllwaaayyysss find that if I dont have enough to eat and if i dont have enough water i always get a migrane.

    I also find that if i dont eat enough veg (especially potatoes) in a period of a about a week then I get a really bad headache untill i have a good nutrious, filling meal.

    Hope that helps!!

    I had those too! And they did work very very well, unfortunatley my body adapts crazily well to painkillers and now i have to take this medication called sumatriptin that i get on repeat from my doc. That works very very well at the moment! Although when I have a huge migrane I also have to take some paracetamol or cocodamol with it too.

    What's also bad is that im so addicted to tea that if i dont have at least 3-5 cups a day, i get caffiene withdrawal headaches... :( bad isnt it? :confused:

    A mini fridge for milk, my own kettle, and tea, sugar and coffee pots, and sweetners of course since we all know... 'im on a diet' haha xD
