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.

Why do multi-vitamin supplements cause headaches?

Why do multi-vitamin supplements cause headaches?

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?

Unusual: I can't imagine what is in your vitamin that would be causing a withdrawal headache... Is there caffeine or something in it? Severe headache particularly "worst ever" headaches need to be evaluated..

Vitamin overdose: Vitamin A overdose in particular can cause headache, nausea, and vomiting. It is not a good idea to take more than the recommended dose of multivitamins. More is not better.

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

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

What could cause sharp headaches?

What could cause sharp headaches?

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.
