Does Anyone Have A Pineal Cyst Causing Migraines Or Headaches?

I got my second MRI in the past 5 years and suffer from severe migraines on the left side of my head along with eye drooping. I know this can be just a migraine or cluster headache, but after learning of this cyst,

I wonder if this can cause such migraines or headaches. Does anyone else experience this?

Answer

T,

Migraine is a genetic neurological disease. A pineal cyst cannot be the root cause of the disease, but it is possible that it could trigger some of your Migraine attacks.

If your current Migraine treatment isn't working well, a discussion with your doctor is in order. If your doctor feels he or she has run out of suggestions for you, it may well be time to see a Migraine specialist. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special?

Good luck,
