I am 43 and have suffered migraine with aura for several years. Iv recently read that low oestrogen can be a cause but can also be a risk of ovarian and breast cancer . Yet in another article migraine suffers are believed to be less at risk of breast cancer. Confused? I am!

doctor1 MD

Hi
Its still not established whether low estrogen really causes migraine. However you may stop worrying about the low estrogen because a history of migraine is a contraindication for the prescription of the same. You may continue with non hormone drugs for prophylaxis of migraine. hope that...

Hi,

The nightmares may be related to major depressive disorder and if so, treatment of depression can provide relief in nightmares as well. In my opinion, you should discuss the issue of nightmares with the psychiatrist who is treating your son and not think of involving a new specialist without...

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?
