Why Do I Get Sinus Headache When Eating Salmon?
Whenever I buy salmon and then cook it at home I get a headache and a feeling of being unwell after - it isn't the salmon, as other in the house eat the same with no effect. So why would I feel this way.
Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!
Sinus headaches are very rare unless you have a sinus infection. The vast majority of what people think are sinuse headaches are actually Migraines. For more on this see Sinuses Giving You a Headache? It's Probably a Migraine.
Of course, I can't give medical advice or diagnose, but I can tell you that salmon is sometimes a Migraine trigger, so it would make sense for you to get a Migraine after eaing salmon.
Is there any history of Migraine in your family? This is definitely something to mention to your doctor the next time you see him or her.
