This is the conclusion of Dr. Kurt Tobias (Tobias Kurth) of the American Brigham and Women's Hospital.
A new study shows that women who often suffer unusual migraine with "aura" may be more likely to get hit than women who do not suffer from this type of headache.
Aura — visual glowing effect around objects, accompanied by severe headache.
Women with this type of migraine have the risk of stroke, in particular its form as ischemic — 70% higher.
Thus, the aura with headache — an indirect sign of blockage of arteries in the brain.
Before this conclusion, Dr. Tobias Kurt and his colleagues analyzed the medical statistics 40,000 women.
