Do Some Multivitamins Cause Headaches
Can multivitamin cause headache? Had headache days in a row while taking multi. Stopped taking it and no headache; sinus/heat possible causes too?
Uncommon but yes: This is uncommon but possible. One can't be allergic to vitamins themselves but many supps have artificial colors/fillers, binders & allergens like soy that could trigger headaches. It could be a co-incidence. Try them again; if you get a headache every time then try a different brand without unnecessary additives. See http://www. Multivitaminguide. Org/ and yes, could be from sinuses/heat/dehydration.
Too much vitamins: Most people living in the USA and eating anything close to a regular diet do not need a multivitamin. Many patients have headache and stomach distress with multivitamins, which is probably due to the multiple additional minerals as well as overdose of regular vitamins. Ask your doctor to see if you have a specific deficiency to treat. Otherwise, stop using multivitamins and exercise more.
I take a multivitamin, and if I accidentally forget to take it I get a horrible headache. Like worst pain I've ever felt headache. Why?
Had about 60 multivitamin gummies in the past 6 days. I woke up with headache, nausea, vomiting which I never get. Is it from taking to many vitamins?
Is there a multivitamin to take to make you hungry? Or eat more. Haven't been eating due to stress and thinking blood in stool and bad headaches
No: Multivitamins don't do that in the U.S. But, if a person takes the kids' gummy vitamins, he can chew 4-6 of them each day to add up to an adult dose. Because they taste like candy, they are likely to make him want more candy, Gummy Bears, chocolate, or snack foods. This is not a nutritious way to do things, but is likely the only way any multivitamin can make a person want to eat something else
Constant fatigue, headache and muscle soreness. Is it iron deficiency? If so, can I take iron supplement on top of daily multi vitamin? For how long?
Diagnosis: Before taking anything get a diagnosis. Your symptoms are nonspecific, and may have nothing to do with excess iron.
Deep or Surface?: Headaches deep inside the head may be different than surface headaches. Usually deep headaches are throbbing or pressure. Surface headaches, especially if 'sharp' or 'stabbing' in my experience tend to be the result of nerve injury/impingement or neck muscle problems. A good history & physical, including an osteopathic hands-on examination might help find the cause & even fix it via manipulation.
Many causes: Mild tension type headaches may be the most common cause of simple headaches. Other common ones include those caused by sleep deprivation, hangover, jaw, tooth or sinus problems and the primary headache syndromes including migraine, cluster and other headaches. They are more severe but not as common as tension types.
See below:: Often, foods are triggers only when they are combined with other triggers. For example, they may act as triggers only when stress or hormonal changes are also at work. Whether you get a migraine from a food or beverage may depend on how much you consume. Chocolate, caffeine, red wine/alcohol, aminio acid-tyramine (cheese; meats, nuts, pork, chocolate, etc); & food additives-nitrites/nitrates/msg.
