I believe my headaches are a direct result from my chronic conditions--I know it's not migraines, feel more related to fatigue, they increase when my UC/IBS is really active; also wake up--pretty much--every morning w/head pain. Last visit my MD suggested that maybe the headaches are related to pain meds, six weeks off pain meds and I may be headache free--we're not going that route b/c I also have other pain in gut, fatigue related, etc. When I wasn't on pain meds, I was taking up to 10 tylenol a day, just to get through work and things I needed to do (and not very effectively). I'm just not convinced that my head pain is related to anything other than to my chronic conditions. Any thoughts; your head pain stories? Furthermore, does anyone also suffer from feeling "out of sorts" all the time?
