Headaches after bariatric sleeve

Posted by jamesk @jamesk, Jul 14, 2022

I have had a headace every day !! Started couple weeks after surgury!! Anyone else?? Dr’s r only givin me pills, which do not work!!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Bariatric Surgery & Weight Loss Support Group.

I have not had that problem, but I wonder if has to do with diet. Are you drinking enough water? Eating enough protein?

If you think that might be a problem, maybe an appointment with a dietitian to see if your change in diet / calorie intake might cause headaches.

There is always a chance that it is not related to sleeve and just consequence it started about same time. Have you had your eyes checked lately.

James, I agree with @roch that the pain may not be related to the surgery. I'm glad that you and your team have been able to rule out possible serious issues with MRIs, CTs and eye exams. Have you considered seeing a pain specialist? Massage or PT?

I'm curious if the headache is constant or right after you eat? Is it a burning pain? Do you also get pain or tingling in hands or arms? Thanks.
