Migraines And Tonsils

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!

Answer

Michele,

Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!

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.
