UCTD: Headaches are common in uctd, usually from a vascular etiology, muscle tension, myofascial trigger points, or due to a form of meningitis known as aseptic meningitis which can be caused by the condition itself or by reaction to nsaids commonly used in this condition. More serious things can cause this & a negative MRI is promising. Keep in mind headaches are caused by many things & not just uctd.
