If You Have High Cholestrol Is It Common To Get A Headache After Eating Certin Foods?

I have high cholesterol and usually eat pretty healthy foods; however, sometimes after eating greasy or high cholesterol foods I get sudden, severe headaches. Does anyone know why this happens?


Hi jwagner! I hope you have found some relief for the headaches. I am not aware of any links between high cholesterol and a reaction to certain foods, but I am not a doctor. Have you seen or consulted your doctor about the headaches? If you haven't, I would suggest asking your physician. If you have, would you consider returning to the community and telling us what you learned? I am sure that others would benefit from your experience.
In any case, here are some links that might be useful to you:
