Do your headaches cause stomach problems?

People with gastrointestinal complaints are significantly more likely to suffer from headaches, according to Reuters.

Norwegian researchers found headache symptoms to be more prevalent among those with acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation and nausea. The story was unclear whether one of the conditions, headache or stomach problems, might be the result of the other.

The story did suggest that increasing headache frequency could result in gastrointestinal symptoms, as certain medications taken for headache could induce stomach problems. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen, have been linked to stomach bleeding and ulcers, as well as certain cardiovascular complications.

Unlike NSAIDs, proteolytic enzymes modulate the natural inflammatory process and support healing without the dangers of serious side effects. In addition, digestive enzyme supplements help the body break down food, resulting in less bloating, heartburn, reflux, gas and constipation.
