Windows 7: Headaches

Headaches

I know this is not a medical/nutritional forum.

However i was wondering if maybe some members in here experience what i go trough or know information.

So during my work days, Friday/Saturday/Sunday. I eat in morning 9AM,11PM and 4PM. Breakfast, mid day breakfast, lunch. Instead of eating 5 times like i usually do I eat about 3.

Usually when I get home like today I get headaches! I know its because I missed a meal.

My question,
Is it normal to get headaches if you miss a meal? Sometimes I miss a meal by only one hour late and I get a headache. They can get really bad that i need to take a pill because i cant stand it.

Another symptom is constantly yawning if I am hungry.

I mean sometimes i have a headache and i Know i miss a meal but I am not starving or hungry. A short amount of time of missing a meal shouldn't cause a headache should it?

I find i get headaches if i dont drink enough water, i can go a few days not drinking water but fill up on coffee but then i get a really bad one pulsing at the base of my skull /neck .
drinking water solves this.
i bet if you drank water in the evening you wouldnt get headaches.

I only really eat dinner on work days, so I can't speak to missing some of 5 meals! But I agree with what boohbah said about drinking water. It may not work in your specific case, but dehydration is a cause of headaches. A Guy

I get migraines if i'm not careful.
I know, in my case, there's plenty of factors that I've learned go into causing a headache.
Not eating for a long period, yes, but just being a little late on a meal "shouldn't" cause a headache so easily.
If you drink coffee or something with caffeine in it, and are for some reason missing that( caffeine addiction is a b**ch, trust me).

Not enough sleep, and stress are really common known causes of headaches.

I wouldn't think that being late on a meal would be a reason to get a headache. Maybe completely missing a meal, yes, but not being late on one.
Although, everyone is different, which makes it hard to distinguish a real cause from just the possibilities.

I don't think we are in a position to offer medical advice except to say the you should see your doctor as there may be an underlying issue.

I agree with Keith there you should see your doctor about it as it could be something that needs their knowledge to solve. Missing a meal wouldn't make a difference or I'd get them all the time, I only eat one meal a day and that's in the evenings.

+ another.

We could offer this that or the other, but it does sound like something a doctor needs to be seen for.

It could be something simple, or as mentioned a manifestation of something underlying that requires further attention or medication.

Of course the above members are correct. But I'm sure it's just a headache...

lol, thank you Guy, made me laugh. I will consider looking into a doctor, but i dont think it's needed. I mean there is a way to make sure it doesnt happen that is not missing my meals. Also these only happen on work days....

I just wish i wouldn't get them those days
