Any women here who get migraines? If so do you get:
1) visual migraines / vision affecting migraines / migraines with auras?
2) are you young (premenopausal)?
3) have you told a doctor about your migraines?
4) if so what did your doctor advise / prescribe as treatment or preventative measures?
I'm curious about this because I've been reading that young women with visual / aura migraines are at a very high risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease and shouldn't be smoking nor should be on birth control. I am not sure most GPs are aware of the risks however, and are lax with female patients who have this condition.
