  • No, but it might be something in the pasta. Like you are allergic to gluten or wheat.

  • celiac disease? not likely.. I remember getting these headaches since I was about 9.. I'm now 21. My dr. told me to avoid wheat/pasta.. but it's sooo hard.

  • You might be allergic to wheat. A lot of kids are. Celiac disease is a disorder, you might just have an allergy to wheat.... Try the gluten free pasta. It's a little stickier than your regular pasta, but has the same flavor. We had to use it for a while because ds was allergic to gluten.

  • The same thing happened to me, I went on a gluten free diet, I feel great now. And, I lost weight.
