    Default I dont believe it, CHOCOLATE and HEADACHES ??

    ok ok it has been Easter, and i love chocolate. But i don't go really overboard.

    Anyways tonight I eat some more and got a headache and had to drink heaps of water.
    It has been happening for awhile on and off, I eat chocolate everyday (smallish amounts) but I think and put it together.

    It might be chocolate giving me headaches. Can this be true ????

    So I do alittle research and found that indeed it can. Can I live with out it, not sure.

    Oh that stinks… LOL
    I LOVE dark chocolate, but I never really eat a bunch at one setting. Was it milk or dark chocolate?!!

    @ddnene - it was milk easter eggs I don't ate heaps in one sitting either, but maybe sometimes alittle too much.
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source

    yep.... something in it can be a trigger. When i was getting regular migraines, it was at the top of the list that the doctor told me to avoid, along with caffine

    Chocolate is a big migraine trigger. I suffer from them and I have to limit what I have.

    Sadly, yes, chocolate can trigger headaches, especially migraines. Limit yourself to maybe 1 square of chocolate every other day as opposed to daily? Sucks, doesn't it?!

    Aww that's so not nice. Chocolate is sometimes a woman's best friend, but I've heard the same thing, that it is a trigger for headaches, especially migraines. Try a little dark chocolate and see if you get the same reaction.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    @ddnene, @Pati Robins @Vikinggirl @cali baker @dieMuttivonBifi @2BullyMama @brutus77 OMG EVERYONE I cannot believe I never knew this ! Yes I will be cutting down. I am lucky I don't get migraines, just headaches, I know there is a hugh difference.
    Never happened when I was younger they must have changed what goes in the chocolate or I am getting old.

    Now I feel alittle silly for not knowing, thanks for educating me LOL
