That's interesting....luckily I rarely get headaches, only on occassion which are directly linked to that time of month because of hormonal hubby gets headaches very easily but has no GI issues to date...I think his headaches might have to do with his spine having a 45 degree angle in it and/or possibly food intolerances which I read can cause headaches.

Thanks for sharing!

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

I have been having headaches, too & I used to never get them. Maybe it's related.... I will find out when I get this in remission whether or not there seems to be a connection...

I was diagnosed with migraines about 6 months after I started having GI issues and then diagnosed with crohns almost a year later...very intriguing...
