Hi everyone, I've posted about this in the "Symptoms" section already, but because this seems to be continuing, I've decided to post about it here, because now I'm getting a little scared, and frustrated, because I can't figure this out. I keep getting migraine aura upon waking, it lasts about 20 minutes, and then goes away. Little to no headache afterwards. I've gotten 5 of them in the last 2 weeks. This is unusual, because I normally get about 1 or 2 PER YEAR. Over the last 2 weeks, I've made some major changes to my diet. I've cut my carbs down to under 100. Who knows how many I was eating before, maybe 300-400. I've also given up Diet Cokes, which I was constantly drinking almost all day and night, especially from 7-11, Big Gulps. Before, I would just eat pretty much anything I wanted to. But now, I am going to list all of the new additions to my low-carb diet, that I eat every day (all new)....and I'm hoping maybe somebody here will be able to help me find the trigger. Because I know it has something to do with this drastic change in diet. I've never eaten this "healthy" before, but unfortunately, these migraine auras are proving to me that something new is not agreeing with me, and I have a very sensitive body, I am allergic to many things...but I also know what they are and know to stay away from them. I don't believe any of my known allergens are mixed in with my new diet, because I already know what to avoid. Here is the list of new foods I've been eating exclusively, please look for possible triggers so maybe I can try eliminating one at a time to find the trouble-maker. And remember, these are all foods that I wouldn't normally eat, I've just been eating them over the last 2 weeks: 1.) Apples with crunchy peanut butter on top 2.) Cottage cheese 3.) Turkey (Sara Lee) sandwiches with cheddar on wheat bread (in the past I've always eaten white bread.) 4.) Vegetable, cabbage, and chicken noodle soups that I pick up from restaurants 5.) Ice water with lemon, and lots of it (instead of constant Diet Coke all night.) PLEASE HELP, would love to know if any of the above ^ have caused migraines for you if you suffer from them. Or if you see that I have possibly given something up (?) that could be bringing on these migraine auras, only when I first wake up, right side only. Thanks so much, I will be checking this thread for possible answers/suggestions. And no, these aren't mini-strokes or anything like that....I've had these migraines off and on for years, and they run in my family. Just not so often, and that's how I know it's the new diet. Also, I've been hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) since high school, not sure if that info makes a difference. Thanks again.
