In brief: Depends on how bad i
The answer depends on how bad they are.
If you can tolerate them without any issue then the answer is no. If they bother you then avoid triggers, exercise regularly, limit stress and get enough sleep (eg 7-8hrs min). Eat a well balanced diet, avoid medications and alcohol and smoking. Avoid dairy, caffeine wheat, chocolate, eggs, rye, tomatoes, oranges.There are some medications - talk to your md.
