What are migraines?
Everyone at some point in their life has experienced a headache; however, there are millions of people that suffer from chronic migraines which cause severe pain to the head causing the individual to refrain from participating in normal daily activities because they only seek the need to be in a dark and quiet room. These migraine attacks can last anywhere from several hours to several days. There are various factors that can trigger migraine headaches and they tend to be hereditary and more common in women.
New research conducted at Montefiore Health System concludes that women who suffer severe migraine attacks during pregnancy may be at elevated risk for complications during labor and delivery. These include premature delivery, preeclampsia, and low birth weight. The risk escalates with age, with women over age 35 being 7 times more likely to suffer these complications.Study author Matthew S. Robbins, MD, commented “The results of this study were of particular interest because more than half of the pregnant women with migraine experienced some type of adverse birth outcome, suggesting that these pregnancies should be considered high risk.” The research findings are scheduled to be presented next month at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology.
