Hi Alice. I have persistent daily headaches too. My neurologist said the diet thing is a waste of time. If you truly have tension headaches, you might want to try a physical therapist, sometimes associated with a TMJ clinic, even though you might not have TMJ.
I'm trying biofeedback in a couple weeks, but my expectations are low. Good luck.
Hi Alice_T, How are you doing? Relax! You seem to be too stressed due to your chronic headache might be a tension one or sinus for that matter. Can you say how long you have been suffering this headaches and how did it start? Are there any aggravating or relieving factors, more so with food in particular? Are you studying presently or working? Stress can worsen your symptoms further. How about your blood pressure readings? Try to avoid cold weather, cold foods, which can aggravate sinus. Few sessions of physical or massage therapy is always helpful. You need to focus on primary cause and its treatment. Finding food allergen might be time consuming and helps little, also is expensive. So it would be better you consult an ENT specialist once before trying out other ways out. Share your thoughts. Take care.
