Women with migraine with aura are more likely to suffer from blood clots???
You know I really love reading headlines like this…
Women experiencing migraine with aura could be at greater risk for blood clots
… NOT! Thank you for the health scare. As you know, I suffer from chronic daily migraine with aura so there isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t have some form of an aura. So yes I’m going to read this article.
Women who suffer from migraine with aura, a severe headache marked by visual disturbances such as flashes of light, may be more likely to experience blood clots, heart attacks and cardiovascular or heart disease, according to two new studies released this week by the American Academy of Neurology.
Now, I’m not normally in this bracket but there are times when Ihave the old “snowon your tv” effect.Canyou remember whatthat looks like? LOL!
So thanks again for the health scare.
And then you read a bit further on that it might not be as serious as the headline claims. But I do recommend you read the article… because I have been asked my heart before. One neurologist asked about my family history of a hole in the heart and told me there was a link between migraine and hole in the heart and then my consultant told me the link was so insignificant that I shouldn’t worry.
