Researchers at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital analyzed data of over 6000 women who provided information about their migraine status for up to six years. These women were tested for cognitive performance over the same period. The results of the analysis were published in the respected British Medical Journal.
Though everyone knows that migraines can really be excruciatingly painful, the good news is that, women with migraines, either with or without aura did not have different rates of cognitive decline when compared with women who did not suffer with migraines.
Hopefully, this information indicates that as painful and misunderstood as migraines are, to date, they don’t seem to have deleterious long-term effects on brain/cognitive function.
NOTE: For those of you who suffer with 4 or more migraines a month, an option that prevents your migraines instead of options that just treat the pain just makes more sense. To learn more about the most successful natural medicine for migraines please go to www.migrelief.com.
