Abdominal pain and diarrhea that occurs at the same time can be caused by a variety of factors. These can include indigestion, a viral infection such as the stomach flu, or an intestinal disease. It's important to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms.
Thereof, can headaches cause diarrhea?
There can be a link. Nausea and vomiting are often associated with migraine attacks. In young children, several syndromes that cause gastrointestinal symptoms are also associated with migraines. If you experience nausea, vomiting or diarrhea with your headaches, talk to your doctor about treatment options.
What foods trigger stomach migraines?
Certain foods trigger abdominal migraines such as:
- Citrus fruits.
- Chinese foods, particularly if it contains monosodium glutamate, MSG.
- Preserved meats such as hot dogs and sausages.
What are the symptoms of viral gastroenteritis?
Gastroenteritis, on the other hand, attacks your intestines, causing signs and symptoms, such as:
- Watery, usually nonbloody diarrhea — bloody diarrhea usually means you have a different, more severe infection.
- Abdominal cramps and pain.
- Nausea, vomiting or both.
- Occasional muscle aches or headache.
- Low-grade fever.
