Gastritis: If you have gastritis then eating can be uncomfortable. Are you on treatment like PPI- prevecid or H2 blockers like ranitidine? Would also check for h pylori. You may also have a sensitivity to milk so would avoid milk products for 1-2 weeks and see if improves. Avoid caffeine drinks, soda, energy drinks f/u w/ doc

Addiction: No human body needs caffeine, sugar or milk (another form of high sugar food) once they are an adult. Your headaches are your body's proof to you that you have an addiction. If you go a few days without coffee these headaches will disappear.

Why did I get acute headaches in d midnight when I used to take b-protein with milk in the morning? Protein digestion problems linked to it? Am a veggie

Hard to say: Your question is difficult to answer - many causes of headaches in the evenings, and I would not expect morning protein meal to have an effect. If you suffer reactive or rebound hypoglycemia, that could lead to headaches at midnight based on a high carbohydrate meal at dinner time.

Been experiencing headaches, nausea along with milk depletion, nuva ring might be the culprit... Should I take it out mid-cycle or wait for 3rd sunday?

Been experiencing headaches, nausea along with milk depletion, nuva ring might be the culprit... Should I take it out mid-cycle or wait for 3rd sunday?

Maybe: It is theoretically possible that NuvaRing could be the cause. Not very likely though as the hormone dose with NuvaRing is very low. You could remove it anytime and switch to condoms for awhile to see if the symptoms resolve. If they don't look for other causes.

Why not avoid foods: ...that you have a demonstrated intolerance to. May also want to curtail use of artificial sweeteners, and consider the low FOD-MAP diet to find "intestinally-friendly" ingestants.

Aspirin: The safest drug for pain in your conditin is aspirin. Most drugs go directly to the liver to be metabolized. I would hestate to take narcotics of any type since that is so.

Medications: Medications can cause milk from breasts as can over stimulation during intercourse, and a pituitary tumor with the headache but most common cause is usually pregnancy. "period" last month could have been implantation bleeding. Get a pregnancy test and check it. Then go see a doc to help you figure it out if negative.

? pregnancy: Check a pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. Tubal ligation procedures are very good but occasionally they fail. If you are not pregnant then see your doctor to help you determine another possible cause for your symptoms.

Yes: Especially if you were late on your last shot, but even if not late Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is 97% effective (3% pregnancy rate). Although your symtpoms could be hyperprolactinemia or thyroid issues as well. Time for some blood work.

See your PCP.: There are a number of conditions that can present with your symptoms. You could have a urinary tract infection, kidney infection hormonal problems especially since you have missed periods, sugar problems, among other things. You need to see your pcp who can get a series of tests to sort out what is wrong.
