It's just really discouraging because I hate water but force myself to drink it because I know it's so good for me, but these headaches make me want to never pick up a bottle ever again.
Does anyone know what this is or why it's happening? Any similar experiences?
If I drink a big bottle of cold water too fast I get a headache.
Maybe you need to drink it slower, or let it warm up a bit, maybe just under room temperature?
Women who had experienced one or more migraine attacks in the last year (active migraine) were twice as likely to experience a headache from ingesting the cold water as women who had never suffered from migraine.
Not sure how legit it is but hop it helps!!
I ditch the cold water and maybe drink some warm tea. Mint tea doesn't generally have caffeine and is just as good as water.
Yeah, I guess I do drink it sort of fast? It's like a "let's get this over with!" mentality I think haha.
& sadly, the only way I can tolerate water is if it's ice cold. Warmer water makes me gag.
But I guess I'll try to slow down! =]
If the water makes you gag or it is hard to drink it, try drinking it out of a straw. I tried that and it works great for me.
