Ask Dr. Armstrong: Is there a link between migraines and other diseases or conditions?

Migraines have been linked to various other conditions. Individuals with migraines might have a higher risk of stroke, especially women who smoke and use oral contraceptives. Migraine sufferers also often have depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and other pain conditions like irritable bowel syndrome. The interrelation of these conditions is complex and can often impact the approach to treatment.
