I am 26 and have NEVER suffered from headaches. For the past two weeks I have been having a spliting headache in the back left side of my head. it travels right above my ear and to the top of my head. Sometimes  it travels to the back middle of my head. I tried to monitor when it comes and at first it seemed at its worst when I would eat. I stopped eating whole meals for about 2 days. When I started eating again regularly they came back. Its really weird, I am at a lost. Does anyone have any suggestions? ps. I have never had surgery or any medical problems, I don't take drugs (prescribed or otherwise)

Hello Dear,
Your headache seems to be due to migraine and is triggered by some dietary factors.You need to eliminate foods in the diet which cause this headache. Avoid chocolates, cheese, wine, some fruits ,tomatoes, mushrooms ,preservatives in meats ,chineese food,alcohol,caffeine .You should consult a neurologist discuss  regarding the treatment options.
