How are you? Researchers believed that the dispersed pattern of symptoms
in IBS suggests that some agent, such as a hormone, may be
acting systemically, resulting to higher incidence of migraine. This link may be helpful:

Hi,

How are you?
A large number of clinical studies have found the association between IBS and migraine.
Migraine patients are more prone to IBS and vice versa. The association is still being worked out and the role of brain gut axis is being studied. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter released from the intestine and is also involved in the pathogenesis of migraine.

Hope this helps!
