Just wondering if anyone else experiences this phenomenon. When my blood sugar rises and reaches about 150, it triggers a massive migraine headache. I've mentioned this to my various endocrinologists and neurologists and nobody seems to come up with a good explanation. The headache eventually goes away when my blood sugar drops to a normal level.

I get them a lot more now that I'm back on a pump and in better control than when I was just doing injections. If I get over 200 (high I know, but I used to run in the 400-500s), I feel like my head is going to explode. My husband can always tell when something isn't quite right; when I get bad headaches I get mean.
The only time that I seem to experience headaches related to bloodsugar is when it rises to normal level after being low. I have no idea why...I have just come to accept that when my bs is low that I am going to have a headache later.
