menstual headache


Recommended Posts

So I am on day 26 of my Whole30 and at the very tail end of my menstuation cycle. I have a migraine that began yesterday afternoon. It is knocking me on my butt. I would normally find relief by taking an ibuprofen...but not allowed during the Whole30. I tried ice on my neck and forehead...I would like to get some relief...

Any ideas of what I can do to take away the pain, dizziness, and nausea? Thanks!

Ibuprofen is not necessarily the recommended medicine to take on W30 (they recommend Tylenol/acetaminophen), but I've seen other threads in the forum in which people are told it's ok to take it if it's needed. Examples here and here, or google W30 ibuprofen.


I don't know if it works or not, but I've seen this on PInterest that says put your feet and hands in a sink of warm water, and put an ice pack on the back of your neck to help with headaches. If you want to avoid the ibuprofen, maybe worth trying?


Hope you find something that works.
