More Evidence Links Migraine and Stroke Risk
Migraines and increased stroke risk has been a fairly frequent topic of research and articles over the last few years. In 2004, Etminan et. al.3 pulled together data from 14 previous studies, correlating and analyzing the data to offer a more conclusive overall picture than we'd had before.
In a new article in the American Journal of Medicine, a team led by Dr. Saman Nazarian report on the data they compiled and analyzed from 21 previous studies.
"Observational studies, including recent large cohort studies that were unavailable for prior meta-analysis, have suggested an association between migraine headache and ischemic stroke. We performed an updated meta-analysis to quantitatively summarize the strength of association between migraine and ischemic stroke risk."
