    Hi all,
    Why do I get headaches on CD?
    I still have black coffee so not from lack of coffee.
    It's the worst thing waking up with a banging headache everyday all day!
    Any ideas?
    Thanks x

    If you have only just started and are on SS, it will be you body getting in to ketosis. It should pass after day 3 or 4.

    Hi

    If you wake up with a headache it's probably a neck posture/muscle tension issue. This is a frequent cause of headaches. Do you by any chance clench your jaw when you sleep or grind your teeth? If you use computers in work talk to your safety rep about getting a work station assessment to make sure your equipment is laid out to encourage you to adopt correct posture while at work.

    Here's a few links that should help:
    Tension-type Headache | Health | Patient UK
    Chronic Tension-type Headache | Health | Patient UK
    Posturite - Please enable your cookies

    If any of the above reasonates with you and you have access to a physio at all I'd recommend them as the first port of call as they will release a lot of muscle tension and give you some exercises.

    Hope this helps

    drink more water, coffee is ok but water will hydrate you better and reduce headaches
