In previous articles I mentioned that chronic migraine sufferers accumulate tiny lesions in their brains over time. Initially when this research came out, there was no wayof knowing if these lesions had any negative effects on brain function.
The good news is that a second study done by researchers at the Harvard Medical School confirmed the results of the first study done in Paris, that in fact, over time the lesions did not lead to any increase in cognitive decline when comparing migraine sufferers to people without migraines. THIS IS REALLY GOOD NEWS!
In fact, one of the several cognition tests that were used to measure cognitive decline, indicated that migraine sufferers had less cognitive decline than non-sufferers.
