    Last night I was craving Egg Nog. (Without the alcohol). I drank a quart in less than 15 minutes. I woke up this morning with a terrible migraine. Do you think it could be caused by the Egg Nog?

    JPach,

    I don't know if it's the milk or sugar, but it could very well cause a Migraine. I have to be very careful myself when I get cravings for goodies! Some of my triggers are: sugary foods, chocolate, Fritos corn chips (yum), ice cream, red wine or champagne (actually I pretty much can't drink ANY alcohol anymore), ...I'm sure there are more, but my Fibro brain isn't remembering!

    It seems to me that if I get a PMS food craving; and I over do it (eating or drinking more than a small amount); I will get a Migraine. Doesn't seem fair that we crave what causes the headache!

    I'm sorry you got the Migraine. I LOVE Eggnog too! My problem is that I have little self control if I know it's in the refrig! Nobody else in my family likes eggnog, so I MUST finish it all by myself! Te He! Hope you feel better REALLY soon. :)

    Blessings & Hugs,
    Annie

    Lot's of additive in egg nog. Take a look at the ingredient list.

    Agree. It was probably an artificial sweetner or some type of preservative.

    Like ice cream, egg nog has way too much sugar and/or additives. Also, you make be allergic to dairy. It gives me a headache also.
