Hi, i am new to this section, i normally hang out in ulcerative colitis!

I have been suffering for over a week now, with sharp pains in my head, and feeling nauseous. I do get migraines with aura, but i didn't think this was connected.

What can cause sharp pains in the head? Is it something i should get checked out for? Today i feel like i have weak arms, right sided pressure under the ribs, and a pain down my spine, which all started after the sharp pains in my head.
Ulcerative colitis for around 15 years untreated (Im am 28 years old now)

Asacol tablets and enemas,Steroids, Pentasa, Mezavant, Sulphazine, 6MP to name a few do not work for me. I do not want to try remicade. Possible surgery in the future.

I am on no meds, now looking into probiotics, turmeric Vitamin E enemas and fecel transplantation. Getting food allergy tested 23.1.10

In a bad flare since Christmas, which I need to get under control fast as it is taking over my life.

My biggest concern BOWEL CANCER :O(

hey i saw that you have UC..i have crohn's and I just started having severe headaches/migraines too...i asked my doctors if they were related and they said no, but it makes me wonder!...I always wonder if it's all the drugs I'm on, but also how about all the stress that our chronic illnesses cause us? I don't think it effects me, but when I really think about it, I'm always worried about my next flare up, and all the other crap that goes along with dealing with crohns and how it affects my life and my future...also, i see you say you don't ever want to be on remicade, why's that? just wondering! hope you don't mind me asking! I don't know a single person who's on it, including someone in their 20's!! So it's nice to talk to people who deal with the same stuff as I do :) lol...
23 year old female
Diagnosed with Severe Crohn's August 2008 (hospitalized for over a month right after)
Taking...nexium 2x/day, remicade 7.5mg/kg/5 weeks, neurontin (for periperal neuropathy, secondary to crohn's), pamelor (for chronic headaches & migraines)
As needed...zofran, lortab, tylenol 3, fiorocet
