Interesting.  Might explain the very frequent, simmering headaches I usually have...
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003
 
Asacol 12 per day,  Azathioprine 75mg, Aciphex, Effexor XR, Forvia and a Probiotic
Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use.  Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.

I was diagnosed with IBS and TMJ when I was in college. Often, I'd alternate between gut problems and jaw/headaches. When one clears up, the other clears up. I firmly believe they're related.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
 
Therapeutic dose sulfasalazine.
Probiotics, l-glutamine and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice and Mucosaheal. Oregano oil antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal.

I had migraines since I was like 4 years old, got dx'd with UC at 15 so I believe it... since taking the food sensitivity test, I rarely have a headache but I still have the GI problems... On another note, my Grandpa who's 88 always said to me, if you have a headache, it means you need to go poop.
