You know, I'm so used to them that it didn't occur to me. Without the year-and-change break, I probably wouldn't even have asked on this forum.

Lately, every day or every other day. They only happen when I'm tired. Thanks for the tip.

Not sure what to make of this--just interesting parallels!
Glad I'm not alone! The blood taste is actually making me suspect migraines rather than headaches, because tasting(/smelling/seeing/hearing..) things that aren't there is usually a migraine thing.
I say that I don't think mine are triggered by diet because I can't see a reason they would have just stopped for so long.

If not, try remembering where were the places where you get the headaches and find if there is something in common with all of them, maybe something from the outside is causing them.
I'm certain I don't have high bp, but thank you!

Yeah, maybe next time I go. Thanks!
