Vitamin D and Headaches
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Margaret,

Well, you don't say how long ago you gave up caffeine and how long ago you started getting headaches, but if you only started getting headaches after recently giving up caffeine then that is certainly the most likely candidate.

But caffeine headaches shouldn't last for more than a week- two at the LONGEST.

While headaches are MOST often Signs of Magnesium Deficiency and you may be able to eradicate your headache on the spot by taking some magnesium or hopping into a warm epsom salt bath as is outlined on the Epsom Salt Uses page.

But there IS a correlation between headaches and vitamin d, which I've actually answered in another question on this Migraines and Vitamin D Deficiency page.

But even if the magnesium clears up your headaches, if you are suspecting that you even MIGHT be vitamin d deficient, then I can almost guarantee that you are SEVERELY deficient!!!

So, I HIGHLY suggest that you get your vitamin d level checked, and no- unfortunately it is not yet part of routine lab testing and you DO have to specifically ask for it.

You'll want to take a look at the Normal Vitamin D Levels page to see what test you should ask for and what the 'Optimal' values are.

And you'll also want to download the Vitamin D Fact Sheet so that you have a good overview on everything that you need to know about vitamin D all in one place!
