Migraines Associated With Increased Heart Attack Risk

Men who have migraine headaches face an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), in particular myocardial infarction (MI), a report from the Physicians' Health Study suggests.

In the study, researchers examined 20,000 men participating in the Physician’s Health Study and found that men with migraines had a 24% increased risk of major cardiovascular disease events, including a 12% increase in stroke and a 42% increased risk of heart attack.

Research has started to find effective ways to help deal with symptoms of migraine headaches. In two studies researchers found Coenzyme Q10 helped significantly decrease migraines. A 2003 study found that 500 mg of magnesium helps with migraine symptoms. Both Coenzyme Q10 and magnesium are known for their heart health benefits.
