Strokes and migraines share many of the same symptoms and are sometimes mistaken for each other. But does a migraine cause a stroke or vice versa? Research doesn't show that.
Studies do show that if you get a lot of migraines, you may have a higher chance of having a stroke later in life. But the risk is small.
The National Stroke Association devotes all its resources to stroke. Supported by major pharmaceutical and medical device makers, it offers information and support to patients, caregivers, and medical professionals.
