    I’d add extra MAGNESIUM – this helps my daughter (GF 2 2/3 years now) if she takes one as soon as she notices a headache coming on! She’s also removed other allergens from her diet (we’re gluten intolerant, she is also allergic to peanuts, almonds, sesame, egg yolks, etc)

    And MASSAGE! As a Massage therapist, for almost 30 years I’ve helped people with tension related headaches feel better fast! These days I often mention symptoms that may be gluten linked, & love your self-test!
