Key Questions

  • Why are the symptoms so variable not just with each individual, but often attack to attack?
  • Is this wide variety unique to migraine? Or does it occur in other conditions?
  • How can you recognize when something is a symptom of the migraine attack or maybe the treatment itself?
  • Are there any symptoms that can persist between attacks? I.e. light sensitivity or vertigo or tinnitus?
  • Are these (interictal) symptoms treated the same way as a migraine attack? 
  • How might symptoms be helpful? (I.e. to help intervene or treat early in an incoming attack)
  • It is common for new symptoms to appear later in life? If so, why?
  • What is the relationship between migraine and seizures?
  • Why would a woman start to have migraine attacks later in life?
  • Can high-pressure headache resolve on its own?
  • Does migraine with aura increase stroke and heart attack? Who is the risk highest? What are the risk factors? How significant is the risk?
  • And several more questions from the audience
