Many of us get terrible headaches along with uveitis. temporal arteritis is sometimes seen in people with uveitis. another cause if you are black is sickle cell disease. sometimes clotting factors found in blood can be tested for. amyloidosis is a condition found in some individuals. sometimes a brain scan is needed to rule out vascular diseases of the brain associated with uveitis. with eyepain often squinting allot causes tension in muscles of the face and head which can also lead to headache. I get headache allot and use of a hot washcloth over my eyes which helps. many years ago I tried straight codein tablets which didn't help at all. tension in my neck, I use heat packs that are microwaveable.
wishing you relief,
Mike
