Days Since Last Headache: 0
Normally a status update wouldn't be done just 3 days following my last update. But things got interesting right after my last post.
In the previous report I'd gone 12 days without a headache. The next day I woke up with a pretty significant headache - probably 5/10. I took Excedrin as well as had a full cup of caffeinated coffee. The good news is that with the greatly reduced caffeine consumption I'd been doing there was "room" for the caffeine to work. I felt virtually 100% of normal in a few hours.
The other significant outcome was that, with the strict diet restrictions as well as detailed logging being done, I could pinpoint a small handful of things I'd done differently that day as compared to other days:
So I "pulled back" and spent that day eating things I knew I'd had before and were safe. The day after that (yesterday) I ate the rotisserie chicken again. (I still had some and didn't want to throw it out - in addition to wanting to see what would happen.)
This morning: BAM! 5-6/10 headache.
