Q: The night before last I took my first Ginkgo (30mg), and yesterday I had a headache all day that was sort of like a sinus headache, but didn’t respond to usual stuff I take for those type of headaches. Also, was o.k. as long as I was lying down or sitting really still. Was wondering if it was the Ginkgo Biloba, or if maybe just a new type of headache. By the way, decided to try the Ginkgo to improve my circulation a bit. Thanks for any info.
Does Ginkgo Biloba cause headaches?
A1: It is always possible. Everyone can have different reactions to any substance. It could have been a simple allergic reaction, or it might be a simple coincidence. You could try a smaller dose again and see if you get the same reaction.
A2: If Ginkgo turns out to be what is causing the headaches, you can use Hawthorn berry for circulation. I usually suggest using Hawthorn for circulation and Ginkgo / Gotu Kola combination for memory.
If the headaches still continue, than you should definitely visit a doctor. If you are already introduced in the art of meditation, you can try it to get rid of the pain.
