Sorry if this has been posted before everyone, but this is driving me insane!

I have been off all added sugar for a week now and for the past 5 days I have had a continuous headache. It is like a low backgroud throb that is driving me absolutely crazy :eek:

Has anyone had any similar experiences? How long did it last?

Thanks all :)

In doing south beach, we make sure to have beans and dairy to help out with the headache. Good luck!

I haven't experienced this since I gave up soda a few years ago, but I remember it lasted about two days. It was scary, to think I was experiencing withdrawls from something seemingly harmless! Good luck on your quest.
