Is Chocolate Evil?
When I first got my migraines, my doctor told me to cut out all chocolate, so I did, which was a horrible task because I truly loved chocolate. For me any chocolate would do from the expensive stuff to the cheapest foiled wrapped Easter eggs from the drugstore.
Then a friend who has migraines said she had been trying chocolate during a migraine attack and it didn’t make it much worse. She said the expensive stuff seems to bother her least.
Recently, I’ve been trying pieces of Godiva during bad spells. The pain and duration of the migraine seems the same, so it makes me wonder how much chocolate is really affecting me.
Yesterday, I went to Krispy Kreme Donuts with a friend, and I spied a chocolate sour cream glazed donut. My head wasn’t hurting horribly, so I decided to try it. How much chocolate could really be in there anyway? After I ate, it didn’t make my head hurt worse, so I figured it was a positive experiment.
Then I had got carried away. Last night, I was at a campfire and smore’s were being made. I decided to try one. It was beyond yummy, but an hour later, kapow! Big head pain city!
So the Migraine Chick jury is still out on chocolate. Is it evil for migraine girls or not?
