I've read that you can eat/drink according to blood type, like o+ may experience upset stomach with black tea. Are there qualities per type?

No (just tales): Different groups of peoples can have different responses to certain foods or medicines, due to genetic or environmental variations among groups, but those responses to foods or medications are not caused by their blood types. They may have certain blood types, by coincidence, along with certain responses to particular foods. Example: native south americans are usually o's, but asia has many b's. ...Read more

Can you take an extra dose of your blood pressure medication for a usual pounding migraine? Thank you.

Can you take an extra dose of your blood pressure medication for a usual pounding migraine? Thank you.

BAD IDEA: Your blood pressure medication is designed to handle your hypertension, and would not help headaches unless your blood pressure has gone sky high due to stopping the meds. You may have migraine, and this is NOT caused by your blood pressure only triggered. Too much meds can dangerously lower your BP. See your doctor and get all of this appropriately addressed. ...Read more

Cleaned with bleach about 2 hrs ago made me super nauseous and migraine, threw up tiny streak of blood at end. Related? Should I be concerned?

Vomiting, migraine: If you were cleaning in an enclosed space, you may have inhaled fumes that triggered symptoms. Always wearing gloves when cleaning with household products. Wear a mask if working in an area that is not well ventilated. You can buy an inexpensive paper one at the local hardware or medical supply store. Take acetaminophen or migraine meds. Blood likely from forceful vomiting. ...Read more

Two questions: (1)does a slightly high blood pressure be a trigger for migraine? (2) looking into mobile phone for 6 hours a day trigger a migraine?

Two questions: (1)does a slightly high blood pressure be a trigger for migraine? (2) looking into mobile phone for 6 hours a day trigger a migraine?

I think: That the two factors are tied together. The blood pressure is due to lack of balance in the autonomic (automatic) nervous system and the mobile phone just adds more "stress". If your metabolism in brain is marginal, a stress factor may "kick it over the edge". See my post on "diet". It might be the "glue" that makes them come together. Is the phone essential for your work? . ...Read more

I'm in a hospital with a severe migraine for 3 days that cause a seizure and they say I have a severe bladder infection blood Do I need a 2nd opinion?

Sounds complex: Not clear to me as to whether your continuing inpatient status is due to an infection (sepsis), or from seizures, or a complicated course involving many issues. The headaches could be secondary to infection, and may not be a main item, unless, infection has spread to brain and/or spinal fluid. Would not hurt to get opinions from infectious disease and neurology docs. ...Read more
