Headache after eating pizza?!

Is this a thing? Does anyone else get a headache from eating pizza?

Not sure if it's a coincidence but I've noticed the last few times I've eaten pizza I've gotten a terrible headache about an hour after confused

No idea if it's a thing but I went through a phase of throwing up whenever I ate pizza. It seems to have passed now but for about 2-3 months if I so much as had a slice of pizza I'd throw up an hour later confused

May well be the cheese

I am prone to headaches and sometimes get one after eating foods with very strong flavours like onion, garlic or chili.

Could it be that?

You too?! I wrote about this last week! Do a search and see the thread. We decided it's prob an allergy to processed cheese. I got it earlier this week with some cheesy cracker things, too. Ouch!

I eat a lot of strong spicy foods, curries etc and never seem to have an issue then so I don't think it's that. Maybe it's the cheese then...although I've never noticed it when I eat cheese in anything else. Really odd confused

Overthehill I missed the thread will have to have a look for it. So do you think it's just processed cheese rather than fresh cheese like mozzarella? I've never noticed it before, it's only happened the last few times which is why I though it might just be coincidence but maybe not!

Me too! I was very surprised - can eat cheddar, feta, mozzarella, halloumi, etc. but pizzas give me real blinders over my left eye, like sinusitis. Must be done thing to go with processed (rather than fresh) cheese.

I, too, am fine with curries, chillies, etc. But have recently developed a tingling against some fruits and walnuts. I don't think they are related, though.

Sorry, crossed posts! Yes pretty sure it's about processed or powdered cheese. Sad, as I really enjoy eating pizzas 'out'! I'm going to try a cheese-free one next time to see if it's better.

I get headaches with black olives. Could it be that maybe? Is it always the same type of pizza?

Hmmm how odd. I eat a lot of halloumi, fresh mozzarella etc so must just be processed cheese that's on pizza.

I don't eat olives so not that. Although, I do always tend to get the same type of pizza (spicy veggie) so thinking about it now it could possibly be the jalapeños as I don't tend to eat them otherwise.
