To make a long story short, on March 6 I had a headache and it has never stopped.
For the past three months I have been poked, prodded, tested, scanned, journaled, and MRIed. All normal. This should be good news, except I kept hoping they would find something wrong, something that could be fixed so my head would stop hurting. The last doc I saw, a neurologist, was the last straw. She diagnosed me with chronic migraines and prescribed pain meds that I need to take everyday, forever. Not my idea of the good life.
Given my recently developed food and medication intolerances, I think it is fair to suspect that one or more of the foods I eat everyday are making me sick. After much research about testing for such things I decided that a Ouiji Board would be just as helpful as any of the current testing methods. The answer is one I tried to avoid, thinking there must be an easier way. Turns out there is not. It is going to be difficult, but will provide the best results. An Elimination Diet.
I start Monday, so here we are on the eve of my turning my entire life upside down. I know it is going to be difficult, but if it offers relief it will be worth a few months of deprivation. The literature says that your intolerance is often something you love and eat almost everyday. That means that potatoes, corn, and eggs are the prime suspects. Of those three, I would miss eggs the most, and corn would be the most difficult to avoid, so potatoes would be the best option.
If you have advice to give, I would love to hear it.
