I have had migraines since I was a baby and I believe there is a connection to headaches and UC. When I was on Asacol I had a headache almost constantly and I think I may not have been tolerating it well. I took a blood test for food sensitivities and since then I have had a lot less migraines and headaches. I drink gatorade and extra water when I get a bad one and it seems to help some.
