Has anyone been prone to more headaches or should I say Migraines since being dx'd with Crohns?
 
What about...Humira? I have been getting 1-2 headaches, sometimes it is the beginning of a Migraine(and anyone who gets migraines knows that you can feel one coming)  everyday.
 
I drink like 5-6 bottles of water everyday...dont do soda...so Im puzzled unless its the Humira.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

Meds I have tried:  Too many to list- LOL

Yes, I deal with migraines and headaches. More lately then usual since trying to taper off of prednisone. I'm going through a lot of Tylenol. I'm hoping they'll stop once I get this whole tapering thing out the way.

I seem to get more headaches at the beginning and end of my period, and this has been like this since my diagnosis. It feels like a sledgehammer banging in my head, not quite a migraine but painful nonetheless, as soon as I feel like it is coming on I take a painkiller and that deadens it somewhat. Jo

I seem to get migraines if I have a lot of D and/or if my iron is really low. I do think crohn's activity gives me more headaches. As for the humira, I would check in with your doc. If the headaches are chronic, might be good to do some blood work and check white blood cells.
23 years with moderate Crohn's/colitis; fistulizing crohn's; pentasa, just started humira

I get migraine headaches now and never had them prior to Humira. I've also developed other side effects such as joint pain, swollen glands, among others...
Crohn's Diagnosed in 1996.
Currently on Humira - One syringe every other week.
Now in remission.
Have tried Prednisone, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro, and Imuran in the Past - they aren't effective now.
Hospitalized only once, but that was enough!

Do you sit in the same position for a long period of time. I get headaches often and have found that this is the reason. I try to walk around every hour to ward them off.

I NEVER had a migrane in my life until being Dx with this awlful disease.  However, I think that since being on Remicaide I have had them more frequently.  In fact, not only more frequently but more intense.  I had one in April and ended up being hospitalized for 2 days.  It was terrible, the left side of my face was temporarily "numb/paralyzed"  it was SO scary!!! 
Dx: 10/04 Crohn's, GERD, IBS,Osteporosis, Depression, Hypokelemia, "Crohn's" Arthritis, Migranes,
Meds: Asacol, Protonix, Lexapro, Celebrex,Potassium, Remecaide,Entocort, B12 injections wkly, Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus

Only time I get a headache (which is fairly mild, never had a migraine) is during that time of the month.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
