    Hello,

    I do feel that headaches\migraines can cause anxiety and stress.
    So possibly yes it may contribute to increased Blood Pressure.
    Also though high blood pressure can contribute to headaches
    and severe ones at that. (in my opinion that is)

    How regular are your migraines? How severe are your migraines?
    What have you been doing to treat them. Any luck?

    Anyone do any research into the report that those who have migraines may be more prone to having strokes?

    I also have heard that migraines sufferers might be more prone to
    stroke but I don't remember what the ratio or vulnerablility rate was?
    Guess possibly due to the neurological changes in the brain that might
    occur during real severe migraines some folks have is why or maybe
    when the blood vessels have such strain on them?

    Interersting thing though to do research on......I will follow this thread
    and see if anyone has more to say that knows more about it.

    my daughter is 33 had migraines and had a stroke not saying that will happen to anyone with migraines but we were told if you have migraines several times a week it is not normal ask your dr to schedule an mrv it looks at the veins my daughter had a ct scan and an mri but the hemoraghe was not found until they looked at the veins.
    To be safe like i said if you get headaches frequently ask your dr about this test.

    I have suffered with constant headaches for many years. I have high blood pressure that was diagnosed when I was 23, because I was having a bad headache. We have never been able to figure out if my headaches caused my high blood pressure, or my blood pressure caused my headaches.
