Continuing the conversation from last week’s support group, has anyone found any successes with changing dietary stuff?
One thing also to consider:
I’ve been reading a book about migraines, of which I suffer from occaisionally. One of the steps to help managing or eliminating migraines is to find your environmental and dietary triggers. This can be done by keeping a log. When you have a flare up, think of what you ate/did in the past 24 hours that might have contributed to it. Write it down and keep notes.
You can also test certain items. If you eliminate caffeine from your diet for a month, and then you have some caffeine, and a flare up follows, it’s very likely caffeine is a trigger for your vvs.
You can definitely take it to the extreme with figuring things out, but I think the headache book and method might be very applicable to start finding out potential causes. Obviously it’s going to be different for everyone. Imagine though if you could eliminate any food triggers for your vvs. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about it food at all in relation to your pain. One piece of the puzzle solved!
