Can Cheese and Ice Cream Cause Migraines? 

Fifteen hours after ingesting a favorite dairy product, you might get one of those "Excederin headaches" that keeps pounding and pounding so that there is no relief for many excruciating hours.

Eighty percent of milk protein is casein, an allergenic substance that causes the production of histamines (you know all about anti-histamines) resulting in mucus. For some people, the result is clogged sinuses. Blood becomes thicker as ventricles swell with substances battling foreign invading dairy proteins. Pressure on brain membranes--dura, arachnoid, pia--temporarily make life intolerable for migraine sufferers.

Scientific Support

"Dairy products may play a major role in the development of allergies, asthma, sleep difficulties, and migraine headaches."
~Pediatrics 1989;84(4):595-603
