  • Is it a migraine? I know I have migraines, they tell me to keep track of what I eat. Some ingredients can bring one on.

  • Yes, I think it was a migraine, I have never had a headache this bad before and I usually get them a lot. A headache so bad I felt nauseous. I took 2 tylenol and lied down for a bit but I actually felt better just walking around for some reason. It is slowly going away but I'm hanging in there, I won't be eating pancakes for a while...

  • Are you using a syrup loaded down with High Fructose Corn Syrup? A lot of your regular grocery store syrups are nothing but flavored HFCS!   That has been know to cause/contribute to migraines in some people. LINK

  • Try using honey or Jam next time... Of course it could have been a fluke. Just this one time?

  • I'll put my money on the syrup too. My mom is allergic to cheapola syrup and i know allergies cancause migraines.

  • I notice I get a headache every time I eat pancakes, mind you, I don't eat them very often.. I"m going to stay away from pancakes and syrup for a good while

  • Could it be the syrup you put on them? Maybe its too sugary sweet.
