Are headaches a common symptom of eosinophilic esophagitis?

Are headaches a common symptom of eosinophilic esophagitis? I was diagnosed monday and put on a restricted food diet to determine the food(s) that trigger the condition. I broke it this morning and have an amazingly strong headache as well as some difficulty swallowing (not bad, but still there).

Hello,

There is no relation between eosinophilic esophagitis and headache. However, migraine headaches may get triggered by fasting, as well as certain foodstuffs such as Chinese food, too much coffee, cheese, cakes, chocolate, etc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
