Associated Migraine Conditions

Are you concerned about getting other associated migraine conditions? Then you have come to the right place.

When two chronic conditions occur together, they are called comorbidities. Comorbid conditions occur independently, meaning neither condition or disease causes the other. [2]

The Most Common Associated Migraine Conditions

Research has not yet proven that migraine is the cause of any other medical conditions but it has been linked to a number of other ailments.

The research also says the link may be stronger if you have migraine with aura (symptoms that come before an attack like: visual disturbances, flashing lights, difficulty speaking or concentrating).

The most common conditions linked to migraine are:

Stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), seizures, hearing problems, fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression. PTSD and pre-term birth. [3]
