Migraines are more than just bad headaches. They’re a debilitating neurological condition that cause more than 90 percent of migraine sufferers to miss out on work or other normal activities. The condition affects one in every 10 people and occurs most often in women, according to the Migraine Research Foundation. In addition to causing throbbing or pulsating pain, new research published in The BMJ has found that migraines may increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, such as heart attack and stroke, and even death among women who experience them.
