People who know stuff about health:
Is it ok/normal to get a headache after I eat anything sugary?
Like I literally cannot eat pie/hard candy/frosting/gummy worms/soda pop/anything with jam or jelly/fruit juice/ice cream/cheerios that aren't plain/cookies, etc, without getting a headache that makes me barely functional.
We don't have the money for arbitrary doctor visits so that's why I'm asking.
I've read up on it on the internet and what I found made it sound like it was no big deal, that my body just needs something not sugary to level out the sugar levels or something. But isn't that something that the body is supposed to do on it's own? And even if I do eat other non sugary things with the sugary foods, I'll still get a headache. Sometimes I get lucky and can just eat a small bag of pretzels or something and get rid of the headache but most of the time it's not that easy at all. Headache medicine does nothing for the headaches, btw.
I'm just wondering if this is something i should be concerned about and actually go to the doctor for. It's gotten progressively worse over the last few months too.
Basically, I'm lucky if I go a day without a headache. I've been trying very hard to not eat things that I know will give me a headache but sometimes I forget or I just "have" to taste something and that little taste goes BAM into my head.
