Distilled Water Curing Headaches
Hello. This is my first post on here. I was at Mayo in Spring of 2019 and was diagnosed with Celiac Disease with a possible diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. I had suffered a stroke-like event a year beforehand and was in rough shape. VERY LONG story short, I have been on gabapentin and duloxetine for most of the time since then for nerve pain.
In January 2021, I started getting splitting migraines. It didn't feel like any headache I had ever experienced. My best description was someone literally trying to slice my head open in specific areas. I worked with a health coach for four months that year and essentially we found no additional food besides the gluten that I reacted to. On a suggestion, my health coach suggested I stop drinking tap water. I have experimented with spring and distilled water around that time. Spring water did not alleviate the headaches, which by that time turned out to be crushing. When I tried the distilled, however, it goes completely away. I have tried other water sources in the meantime, and the headaches slowly or quickly come back. On vacation and when traveling, I seek out distilled now and have drank it exclusively for a year. It is worth noting that I am fine drinking pop, flavored waters, lemonades, etc.
The doctors around here do not understand the phenomenon and tell me it makes no sense but to keep doing it if it is working. I have recently had a super dry throat most of the time as well.
Thank you for any insight!
