I asked this question on our Facebook page: “Who gets gluten-related headaches?”
I told these two case histories:
1) ” I have just seen a dad of one of my patients. He has had severe headaches for years and years and no one has been able to get to the bottom of it. Because of family circumstances, he decided to go gluten free. He has been gluten zero for the last 4 months, and after a week his headaches went and he has not had any since.”
2) “I saw a 20-year-old boy who had been troubled with headaches for 4 years. He had a huge number investigations from the neurologists including x-ray imaging, and been on lots of different medications, but to no avail. He came to see me as a person of last resort. Of course I’ve done all of his gluten celiac markers. I have told him to go gluten zero and see. Hopefully today he is feeling a lot better.
Here are the more than 40 Facebook replies that were posted (I have removed all names). As you will read, headaches and gluten are closely gluten-related for a lot of people. Of course, not all headaches are gluten-related .
