I don't get headaches very often, but since I was diagnosed with diabetes, the headaches I do get are pretty bad. I have a doctors appointment coming up next week, but til then, does anyboy else have bad headaches since being diagnosed with diabetes?

Where I live, whenever we get a sudden severe headache, we think dehydration first. I don't know where you are, but it couldn't hurt to make sure you are drinking enough water.

I sometimes get headaches which seem to originate and stay in the front, center of my head, my doctor says that they are caused whenever there is an elevation in my blood glucose level.

The next couple of times that you have a headache test your blood glucose and document the results, see if there is a connection between the two.
Let your doctor know of this, together you should find a solution.

I was going to suggest exactly that. When I start crashing, my head starts pounding. I don't get headaches normally so its a good indicator for me.
