What about migraine and risk of stroke and heart attack?

There is little evidence to suggest that a stroke is more likely to occur during a migraine attack than at another time. Migraine is common. In some people migraine and stroke appear together but the nature of the causal relationship, if any, is difficult to establish firmly. Migrainous infarction is the term given to an ischaemic stroke occurring during a migraine attack.
