Can you have stomach migraine?

I used to have migraines that just affected one side of my head. As I have got older, these are rare but I do have terrible cramps in my stomach from time to time when I get stressed. Could this be a migraine but affecting my stomach or is it IBS instead? Thank you

    Hi 1rkxc84,

    Thank you for your question. Acephalgic, or silent migraine can present like a migraine attack without the headache phase. You can read more about that here; https://migraine.com/?s=acephalgic+migraine&submit=Go.

    I wish I could tell you whether or not this was a migraine attack or IBS, but only your doctor can do that. I would encourage you to have a conversation with him/her to figure out what is going on.

    Please keep us posted,
    Nancy
