Migraine does not just restrict itself to headache. Because it is a disease involving the nervous system and circulatory system of the body, it can lead to dangerous consequences like:
- Stroke: A severe attack of migraine can lead to leakage of blood in the brain. This can result in an attack of stroke, which may prove dangerous.
- Seizure: Sometimes, migraine can be followed by an episode of fits or convulsions, called as Migraine Seizure.
- Status Migrainosus: Occasionally, the attack can be so severe as to last for more than 72 hours. This is called Status Migrainosus.
- Medication-Overuse Headache: If the patient is used to taking allopathic painkillers, his body may become habituated to them. When this happens, a headache of a more severe variety occurs when the effect of the medicine wears off.
