Does Migraine Cause Brain Damage?

Migraine and related headaches are responsible for 20% of all clinic visits, and they are the leading cause for loss of man-hours at work. It’s no exaggeration to say that not only is migraine a problem for the sufferer – it’s a headache for employers as well!

Do frequent episodes of migraine lead to structural brain damage

 

A major concern for doctors and migraineurs alike is the burning question – do frequent attacks of headache lead to any lasting damage to the brain? Does a life-long battle with migraine leave scars in the brain? Do my headaches mean I am going crazy or demented?

About Rajshekher Garikapati

I am a doctor with heart and nerve! Thirty years in the profession, caring for people, listening to their troubles - their physical ailments, their emotional travails, their financial and social problems - made me realize that since we are all spirits on a physical journey, our troubles need a spiritual solution, rather than mere bodily cures. That is why, when I prescribe medicines to patients, I ask them also to focus on their thoughts, their attitudes and their relationships. Solutions come not from the physical nostrums, but from spiritual upliftment.
