 In Migraine Sufferers, Abuse may Raise Risk of Heart Attack, Stroke

Patients who suffer from acute migraine and have had childhood abuse experiences are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular (CV) disease, scientists have revealed.

Scientists found a linear relationship between the risk of stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), MI, or all of these adverse outcomes and the total number of abuse types they experienced as children (physical, emotional or sexual abuse, or physical or emotional neglect.)

The study was conducted n a multi-centre, cross-sectional study of more than 1,300 headache clinic patients.

"Other work has shown a link between childhood maltreatment and migraine and now we know that early abuse puts these adults at a greater risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease.

"Dr. Tietjen and her teams are pioneers in understanding the relationship between negative childhood experiences and migraine," said David Dodick, M.D., president of the AHS.

"Now we need to drill even deeper to understand the relationship between migraine, aura status, childhood maltreatment and CV disease risk," he added.
