Hello and welcome to justanswer!

There are some foods that cause headache in some people .Like , blue cheeses, cheddar,mozzarella,processed cheese, are among some diets which increase blood flow to brain causing headache.Some people have brain freeze headaches like when they eat ice cream , the headache is triggered and is gone after sometime.Some people have allergies to some foods like shell fish and have severe headache after eating it.This is only few examples , and actually , the range of allergies is highly individualized and each person has some allergy to a particular food.I think you should seek the help of a internist and an immunologist.
Hope i have answered your question.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
