Migraines and juice fasts

Has anyone had chronic migraines and used a juice fast to help out? How long did you fast? What were the results?

Nothing really helped my migraines, I'd end up in hospital every time needing I.V. saline solution and double doses of heavy drugs. Pretty horrible.
A bit better after having a baby, also I discovered that Tylenol-3 worked for me and since I was getting only 1-2/year it was a reasonable option.
I don't know what's changed, maybe hormones? Raw food did not seem to have any effect on them for me though.

If it is headaches during a juice fast then it is likely hypoglycemia and i would tread with caution if so as low blood sugar and hypoglycemia is dangerous.

No, so far I have not had a migraine as a result of the fast. Thanks for the tip, however.

A major trigger for me is air pressure. Not much I can personally do about that unfortunately. I just have to take care to nip a bad headache in the bud, there is a certain point of no turning back but I've gotten good at catching it in time mostly. It rarely happens now anyhow (thanks the Universe!).
