    Could PCOS be related to migraines? Shirley.



    Answer:


    Dear Shirley;


    PCOS can relate to Migraine as a trigger for Migraine attacks, particularly if there is an associated change in spinal fluid pressure, which can occur with the disorder. A large number of Migraineurs have changes in their spinal fluid pressure and this is often not thought about. Seek out you an established headache and Migraine specialist.


    Good luck,
    John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
