I have chronic migraines and chronic daily headaches ( and have basically my whole life. Long story short... My neurologist says I should avoid artificial sweeteners (among other things), but I am unsure how I can do this when I cannot have sugar. Anyone have any ideas?
I have heard Plant based sugar alternatives like Stevia don't have the same headache causing issues, but I find them bitter.
Btw...too get to the root of your headaches, I recommend a headache diary. Keep track of things like BBT, when you wake up, when you go to sleep, foods you eat and drink, medications, activities, and level of headache pain. Over time you can notice a correlation between foods, activities, environmental, or hormonal factors and headaches.
