Does Green Tea Give Me Migraines?

In the past I’ve had really bad headaches from what seems to be behind my right eye. For a while I thought it may have something to do with my glasses having the wrong prescription, but a recent visit to the opticians said there was nothing wrong with my right eye, and that the prescription hadn’t changed much. So even after the new glasses I’d keep getting these headaches – until, at some point, it stopped.

Fast forward a good number of weeks to now – and I’ve been feeling quite healthy. None of this headache business at all. That is, until today…

What did I have back then, and today – which I’d not had for a while?

Gunpowder green tea.

A quick Bing around shows us that there are other people saying similar things, but the thought had never crossed my mind before. I’ll have to lay off it again and see what happens.

Strangely, it didn’t seem to happen when I drank green tea from a bag, so maybe it’s the uber-detoxifying powers of Gunpowder that causes this to happen.

Also, on an interesting note, I’d never realised that my headaches are actually ‘textbook‘ migraines with aura. Cool.

This is just my experience though, and I’m sure I’ll follow up with more information, but I’d be interested to hear if anyone else has had these symptoms.
