Hmmm…. I am truly aiming for brainless apparently.

Migraine

Both the frequency of Migraine attacks and the length of history of Migraines are indicators for brain damage in Migraine.

Attack frequency and disease duration have an influence on brain structure and integrity in Migraineurs.

Migraineurs with higher frequency of Migraine attacks showed abnormalities in both white matter and grey matter of the brain.

The frontal lobe was shown to be one of the most prominent areas of brain abnormalities in Migraineurs.

High frequency of Migraine attacks or a long history of the disease might contribute to accumulating brain damage due to the repetitive occurrence of pain-related processes, thus making Migraine a progressive disease.

The bottom line here is that this study provides evidence that frequent Migraines and having had Migraines for longer than 15 years significantly increases our risk for brain damage. This provides more evidence that Migraine is indeed a progressive brain disease. It is also of significance that Migraine is repeatedly referred to as a disease by these authors. (MigraineConnect)

Brain damage, eh?  The Brainless Blogger totally gets that!  I have had migraines since I was a wee kiddie and they have been frequent for about fifteen years now.  I don’t really like the idea of migraine disease being a progressive one, but certainly in my case it has been.  What can I say?  Bummer. https://w.atcontent.com/-/2uB5jm2PPXF/nikki.albert/0-L01Ljtlt6.text/Panel/Autocheck
