What deficiancy may cause a headache

on 10/18/11 3:59 am
I've been getting slight headaches everyday, could that mean I'm deficiant in a certain vitamin or mineral?  Just wondering because I thought I would try the holistic method before using tylenol on a daily basis.

crappy, there's days where I can barely choke down 16 oz.  Thanks I will increase the agua and hope that works.  I thought maybe it was iron or something.

I was going to say a lack of sex can cause headaches then I remembered that a lack of sex is the result of headaches.

Dehydration would be the obvious cause f you are barely doing 16oz some days.  You really need to push the fluids.  Dehydration is the number 1 cause of WLS patients going to the emergency room.  Talk to anyone who has been there it is not a fun or cheap experience.  if you have to set a timer to remind yourself to drink then do that.  For me in the early days I had a timer go off every 10 minutes to remind me to drink.  When I have bad weeks yes I do get them I will go back to my timer.

Seriously if nothing else get you fluids.

Dehydration, and followed by constipation, low minerals... etc...
Add stuff to the water... a lot of us have problem drinking jus****er... adding flavoring helps.

I spent 5 1/2 hours in Urgent Care last week because of dehydration, one of my symptoms was a mean headache!

Iron deficiency can cause headaches but it sounds like it's more likely dehydration in your case.

Could be dehydration or how about the lack of caffeine?  I had to wean myself off caffeine before the surgery.  It usually causes headaches as well.  Hope you feel better soon.

I drown myself in water today, and guess what?  That was the culprit, or maybe I was the culprit for not drinking enough.  Thanks again, I was thinking it was iron or something else.  Appreciate all the advice.
