A 36-year-old female asked:

Hi! i was wondering...is there a known/studied connection between frequent headaches/migraines and ms? if so do the ms meds, like tysabri, (natalizumab) help?

Possibly: There are some connections between ms and migraines. I would go online and do some research. The problem with headaches and migraines is that there are so many types of headaches and types of triggers. I would try and narrow down the cause, if possible, before deeming that ms is the cause or vise versa.
