I been getting a lot of headaches about 2 hours after I toss and wash (regardless of strains). I have been drinking a lot of water so I don't think its dehydration. I've gotten to the point that as soon as I toss and wash I also toss and wash headache medicine which, I know, I know, is not good for your stomach. Any suggestions?

I know you said you’ve tried different strains, but were they from the same vendor? If not, you may try from a new vendor for a week or so and then see how your old stuff treats you.

The only time I have had headaches from kratom was when I purchased it from a headshop.

Electrolytes. Betcha your potassium or sodium, etc is low. Drinking water does not assure you of proper electrolytes.

I would at least TRY adding electrolytes to your h20 because dehydration is more complicated than just drinking water.

I often supplement my electrolytes because kratom definitely affects my electrolyte balance.

Yes, the head shop near me sells “Magic Kratom” and it might as well be headache powder.
Also, when I’ve tried to chase the euphoria and took a lot throughout the day, I’ve gotten a headache.

I STILL do that! If I’m feeling well and don’t want it to end, I take more and feel sick the remainder of the day! Self control is difficult-my brain needs to constantly adjust to “less is more”.

Please do get blood work done to adjust your electrolytes. Super important!

As a former migraine sufferer, I discovered that oxygen can have an impact on headaches. I get canned oxygen from the Pilot store. When I feel a headache coming on, I inhale oxygen for a few minutes and it seems to work. Headache meds work too, but it might be worth giving it a try.

I was going to say electrolytes as well Laurie. I am on a keto diet so I only drink water with coffee in between. But if your electrolytes are a mess try this reciepe for ketoaide. I take a 20oz bottle of h20 and put a bit of iodized salt in it (sorry dont know exact measurement just to taste, not too salty). Then the liquid magnesium (you can get at dollar general with the laxatives] about 1tsp and mix with one of those powders that you flavor water with. Like crystal light etc. This is all you need 5o regulate your electrolytes and works like a charm with no added sugars. Added bonus can help with any constipation issues lol.

I noticed that I get headaches from a lot of the Reds, especially if the dose is over a gram.

But Green Riau takes my headaches away even if the dose is over a gram. I have noticed that if I go to much over 1.5g that I get the wobbles.

Littlebear,
I'll have to try the oxygen thing to see if that helps. Especially for my wife since she will not take kratom.
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)
