I've suffered from this for 30 years now. I'm ok and then all of a sudden I begin with a dull headache and a feeling of hunger. The next day I wake with diarrhoea and begin to vomit soon after. This lasts for 24 hours and I am left with a very bad headache. Over the years it has meant days off work and missing important family and social occasions. I have been treated by doctors and naturopaths, most recently by a homeopath - counsellor. I feel that coffee, chocolate and alcohol sets attacks off but don't know what the cut-off point is. Alcohol is virtually gone from my life but I love coffee and chocolate. I try to be measured as I would feel that I have no treats at all but is the answer to cut these out? No medical or other practitioners have felt this is an issue. My doctor thinks they are a type of migraine but the medication sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. My homeopath - counsellor believed the attacks were emotional but I have stopped going to her as I find it depressing talking about all the negative things in my life. Ring any bells with anyone? Thanks for any advice.
