I get migraines and chronic daily headaches 24/7. I am on topamax and effexor xr for the migraines and don't get them often. I am trying to come up with something to help with the CDH (between 5 and 8) since I've had a headache for over 8 years now every day and it's getting harder to deal with. We've tried everything. I was thinking that one thing that the neurologists at Jefferson Headache don't do is look at Nutrition and was thinking maybe I should try an elimination diet. Looking at the elimination diet at this site, I can't figure out how to do it for CDH since it would take a few months to know if it helps and it would cut out almost everthing you can eat. I was going to do a gluten free diet but don't have signs of having celiac disease, though my Mom had it. I could get the blood test to find out I would think but there are so many more things listed in the elimination diet like avocados, and other healthy foods I would think would be what you would eat to try to find out if grains are a problem. I'm not sure how to do it. Do you know what to do to try to help CDH? I've gone to 4 different doctors, 3 Headache Specialists and still have gotten nowhere with my CDH, I'll try anything. Mri, Mra, botox, nerve blocks, lumbar puncture, sleep study, chiropractic, 3 day out-patient IV infusions, tons of OTC meds, I don't respond to meds once I have a headache or migraine, the only thing I can take is a barbitol med to numb me to the pain. Any ideas? Thanks.
