Examination best: It's best to be seen by your physician for a general set of blood work and then, to find out more about your family's history for similar conditions are concerned, the amount of caffeine you drink, and look at the side effect profiles of any medications you're taking for your headaches & allergies. I can't see where nutritional supplements without verifying need by labs first would stop this. GL
