Omega-3 and Headaches

Over the last couple weeks, I've been either taking a fish oil pill or eating some food with flax seed (both right in Omega-3) in the mornings, and I've been getting headaches in the afternoon. Has anyone else experienced this?

My buddy did so he cut his dosage back and they went away. I guess he was getting too high in n-3 or something.

Re: Omega-3 and Headaches

I was having the same problem when I was taking "mega" doses. I tried to find info re. this, thinking that was the only thing I was doing differently (I was never one to get headaches). Couldn't find anything specific. Stopped for awhile and cut my dose way down. Headaches stopped.
