carb flu maybe?
Just started, have not been 100% but close. Don't normally have much with sugar in it anyway but wondering if it's common to have chronic headache during the first week?
Three days in...
It's easy for me to not eat what I shouldn't but have no sources that assure grass fed, organic, etc. Eating lots of meat, nuts, veggies, and some fruit. No alcohol at the moment. Have not had grains at all.
Oh, I do drink black coffee (espresso) in the mornings and green tea throughout the day.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
I don't remember having headaches when I was adopting to paleo, but if you're feeling strange in any way for the first week or so then it's most likely temporary.
Yeah, sounds like carb withdrawal symptom to me.
Well, it sure was normal for me. I've gone on and off Primal two or three times (I don't recommend that), and each time I go through "carb-flu" for 3 to 10 days. Major headaches. Occasional low energy. Constantly feeling hungry enough to eat my own arm off, even though I've practically eaten a whole cow.
Good news; it's probably temporary. I'll cross my fingers for you.
In the mean time, make sure you're getting enough water (one of my more common problems).
A headache or cephalgia is pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck.The brain tissue itself is not sensitive to pain because it lacks pain receptors. Rather, the pain is caused by disturbance of the pain-sensitive structures around the brain. Several areas of the head and neck have these pain-sensitive structures, which are divided in two categories: within the cranium (blood vessels, meninges, and the cranial nerves) and outside the cranium (the periosteum of the skull, muscles, nerves, arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissues, eyes, ears, sinuses and mucous membranes).
