    Is there a link between tonsil removal and less migraine headaches? Since I had my tonsils removed, I have had fewer migraines, just an observation I made, maybe because I am still recovering and have been relaxing and still on the Popsicle diet for the past 10 days! And no stress!

    There is a link whenever we're ill. When we're ill, our body is weaker and more susceptible to our Migraine triggers. Your tonsils were probably making you ill, maybe even with infection, or you wouldn't have had them removed.


    Also, during this recovery period, you've been taking better care of yourself. You've been resting, staying well hydrated, etc.

    I had my tonsils out when I was seven. My tonsils were large and I use to snore bad. I use to get them atleast once a week and I would be unable to walk, nauseous, and had blurred vision. Even the sound of someone breathing would hurt so bad. Since then I have only had one once one really hot/humid summer. I believe it has something to do with breathing. I am 23 now and have had only the one migrane since, and no longer snore.
