I was diagnosed 2 months ago with Crohn's and I've started to suffer really badly with headaches. Is this a related symptom?

Thanks!

      I'm on mesalazine, iron and b12 at the moment. I'm due for my first IBD clinic appointment this Thursday. Could it be from any of those?

      I wouldn’t have thought so. I used to be on all of the above & didn’t have headaches as a side effect but every one is different & medication effects people in different ways. Mention it to your dr at your appointment just in case it’s med related...

    I also get regular, or close to constant headaches. I'm also on Mesalazine but I think it's more of a Crohns thing. It a usually worse when rest of symptoms flare.
