    Before LL I very very rarely got headaches, now I seem to get one a week and today's is just not going away, even though I've taken something for it.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Just wondering if it is LL related or something els

    Hi. I'm surprised no-one has replied to this - it must have slipped off the page before being noticed. I'm not doing LL, but on CD I tend to get headaches if I don't drink enough water....and enough for me is at least a litre more than the recommended amount! Could it be that with you? Maybe you need more than they recommend on LL?

    Hi Dancing - Is it first thing in the morning cos this could well be a dehydration thing but equally there could be other reasons - drinking too much in a short timeframe would increase your BP and cause a shortterm headache also.

    Hmmm, nope don't think it is the water - it actually happens more in the evening. I drink about 6 litres a day and tend to space it out over the day. Actually, maybe it is something to do with dehydration as my office is very warm and dry (oh the struggle we all have in the office to try to get a steady comfortable temp) and that is when I am most affected. Maybe I'll drink a little more frequently when in the office

    Fortuanately for me, I'm exactly the opposite. I used to get headaches all the time, probably because I never drank enough water. On LL I've only had two and although the first one was one of the worst I can remember I put it down to carbo withdrawal. Since then I've actually been feeling fine. Also, my sleeping pattern has improved, I'm more alert in the morning, I don't feel tired during the day and generally have more energy. Does anyone else experience these things? I find it really encouraging and it makes me realise exactly what the carbs were doing to me.
