Headache with Imatinib

Hope every one will be in good state of mind and health,
My question is , if there is any relation between CML and headache.
Actually i am suffering mild headaches time to time , these days.
Please guide me what to do.

I drink 2 litres of water a day, and barely have a headache.  Before I was diagnosed I used to suffer all the time with headaches but I think the water intake has made all the difference.  I'm on imatinib and have been for almost 2 years.  I hope you manage to sort this out, it's miserable having headaches.

Thanks for the info. Btw, do you know any meds that can help me get rid of my migraines?

I used to (for many years) suffer from migraines several times a month. Since I was diagnosed with CML 5 months ago I cut out all sweets from my diet and started exercising 3-4 times a week. I have literally not had a migraine in 5 months. The change was so drastic I even wondered if it was the imatinib that was preventing the migraines, but from what I can tell it is the change in diet/ exercise. I'm sure this won't work for everyone but it's worth a try!
