Health issues associated with migraine headaches...
Occasional migraines could double your risk of developing depression
. If you have chronic migraines – that’s 15 or more days per month – your risk doubles again. In some cases, depression
comes first instead of as a result of migraines.
This suggests that migraines and depression
have something in common like genes, neurology - or both, according to Dr Lipton.
A number of studies have found a link between migraines with aura – the sensory symptoms that sometimes precede a migraine attack – and strokes caused by blood clots.
If you have migraines with aura, you have approximately double the risk of a stroke than the general population, says Dr Lipton. However, that risk is pretty small overall. “Migraine, particularly with aura, is largely a disease of younger women and women are at a lower risk of stroke than men. Even though the risk doubles, it’s still low,” Dr Lipton says.

Scientists have discovered a Natural Compound that’s been shown to DESTROY these cancer stem cells…
In a major study, published in the journal Anticancer Research, scientists identified EIGHT different ways in which this natural compound destroys cancer
Inhibiting COX-2, an enzyme that causes chronic inflammation, which can lead to cancer.
Impeding the formation of new blood vessels near cancer cells – which causes the cancer cells to starve to death.
Inducing a tumour suppressing gene that deactivates cancer stem cells.
Improving communication between healthy cells, allowing them to recognise cancer cells as threats.
Disrupting the communication between cancer stem cells and other cancer cells.
Stopping cancer from spreading in the body.
And, preventing the regrowth of cancer stem cells.
There are hundreds more studies like this one that show just how powerful this Natural Compound really is against cancer stem cells.
In fact, there are over 1,500 citations in the US National Library of Medicine's bibliographic database, that prove its significant anti-cancer activity.

Like migraines, the seizure disorder epilepsy
can involve both mood changes and sensory disturbances. Having one of these conditions could double your risk of the other, according to Dr Lipton – but either can come first.
“They’re both disorders of brain excitability, where the brain is likely to react to environmental stimuli, to sleep
deprivation. Some of the specific genetic causes of migraine also cause epilepsy
,” Dr Lipton explains.
People who suffer with chronic migraines are ore likely to have an anxiety
disorder. About 50% of people with migraines also have anxiety
, according to the American Migraine Foundation.
#5: Heart attack
People who get migraines, especially those with aura, also have a higher risk of heart disease
and heart attacks. One study also found that migraine sufferers were more likely to suffer from high blood pressure
While this may not be good news - it's wise to be aware of the additional health risks - this way you know taht if you experience other signs, you need to take them seriously. It's also important to go for your checkups and to ensure you get proper treatment for health conditions.
