Migraine: When it's a sign of a heart attack
About the author:

People who suffer from migraine with aura are at special risk of a heart attack, new research has found.


Compared with someone who doesn't suffer from migraine, they are more than twice as likely to have a heart attack, and to die from cardiovascular disease. The risk is heightened if one of their parents also suffered a heart attack.


Overall, 18 per cent of all women and 8 per cent of men in the USA regularly suffer from a migraine attack, although it's a level that has not increased in 15 years.
