Adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have a higher prevalence of migraine or severe headache, according to a study published in Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain.

Investigators analyzed data from 60,436 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older participating in the 2015 and 2016 National Health Interview Survey. The correlation between IBD status and migraine or severe headache was examined and stratified by levels of selected characteristics.

The researchers found that the age-adjusted prevalence of migraine or severe headache was 15.4 percent overall, while the prevalence of IBD was 1.2 percent. Compared with those without IBD, participants with IBD had a higher age-adjusted migraine or severe headache prevalence. After controlling for all other covariates, the correlation of migraine or severe headache with IBD remained significant overall and within the levels of most other selected characteristics.

In particular, health care providers might assess migraine among IBD patients who may benefit from the treatment and prevention of migraine or severe headache.
