Can you get headaches from not eating

Can not eating anything all day cause a headache?

Re: Can you get headaches from not eating

Not eating all day causes your blood sugar to drop. Common symptoms of low blood sugar include headache, weakness and even the shakes.

If you are in a situation where you cannot eat anything all day, you should at least drink sports drinks, Ensure/Boost or fruit juice. Avoid caffeine and so called energy drinks with caffeine, and sodas.

I noticed that when I skipped breakfast I would get a headache before lunch time. I now make sure to eat breakfast just to avoid getting a headache.

Yes, and those with eating disorders suffer from headaches and migraines.
