Default Sugar withdrawal headache

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

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.
