I know that when my sugar levels get messed up, especially, before I got put on metformin, I would get headaches quite a bit.

I used to get headaches almost every day. Getting rid of them for me took a few years. First I had my eyes checked and found I needed glasses, which helped eleviate some of the pain. Next, I had a breast reduction, which made it so I only had headaches about 3 or 4 times/week rather than the norm 5-7 times. After that I found out that I have food and environmental allergies. Once I cut out the food (wheat, eggs, bananas, & asparagus) allergies and started taking antihistamines and doing a nasal rinse every day I now rarely get headaches. So my advice would be to have your eyes checked and talk to your doctor about possible environmental & food allergies. Good luck!
Also, make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day.

I use to get them really bad up till a few years ago when they all but stopped (I still get them from time to time, but nothing like it use to be), we associated them with the rise and fall of estrogen in my system.

Now a days I tend to only get them and its weather pressure related, so I deal with them as I need to do so, mostly darkness and as much advil as will give me an hour or so of not hurting so bad.

In general I've never had any treatment for them because well pain meds don't work with me and the number of drugs I'm allergic or sensitive towards I don't seek to treat them, if they are bad enough I'll see the chiropractor who works wonders to treating them and stopping them in their tracks.

I'm wondering if anybody else gets headaches? I have seen several docs about it and haven't gotten any real answers. The first told me migranes, I've heard pituatary tumor, tension headaches, poor stress managment, it goes on and on. I've been on several different meds and nothing is helping.
Any suggestions?
