Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
What is your Height and Weight? Do you have any other problem other than high blood pressure or migraine, like difficulty in urination or any swelling of any part in your body? If you have a High Blood Pressure reading that is more than 140/90 mmHg for more than 3 sittings in a day with 15 minutes of rest, it means you are Hypertensive. It is called Stage 1 Hypertension. Get yourself examined by a Cardiologist first so that he can examine you thoroughly and come to a final diagnosis? He may suggest you few blood and Urine tests. If you are overweight, you may want to reduce your weight by regular exercises, like cardio, crunches, swimming and skipping for an hour daily. Avoid junk and limit your salt intake. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Avoid stress and practice relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation. These steps will keep you Blood Pressure under control. Go for regular follow up.
Now, coming to migraine, do you have associated nausea and vomiting or sensitivity to light and sound.? medications can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines. If treatment has not worked for you, better see a neurologist and try a different migraine medication. The right medicines combined with lifestyle changes may make a drastic difference. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Apply cool compresses on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Make sleep a priority and sleep for a minimum of 8 hours daily.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?

I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
